Jumbo Interactive replaces retiring company secretary

| By
Australian lottery retailer Jumbo Interactive has announced that non-executive director and former company secretary, Bill Lyne, will retire effective as of 31 March, 2021.

Lyne stepped down from the role of company secretary from 1 January this year, and was replaced in the role by Graeme Blackett.

Lyne, who is also the principal of Australian Company Secretary Service, has served as company secretary of Jumbo since October 2007.

Jumbo’s chair, Susan Forrester, said: “On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Bill for his commitment and contribution to the business over the last 11 years, particularly as a member and Chair of the Audit and Risk Management Committee and as a member of the Nomination and Remuneration Committee.”

“His support and counsel have been greatly valued. We wish him well with his retirement”.

Graeme Blackett, who replaced Lyne in the role, has over 25 years’ experience as a company secretary, and has been senior company secretary with Company Matters for over 2 years, where he acts as company secretary to range of listed, unlisted, not-for-profit and superannuation fund clients.

Prior to joining Company Matters, Blackett held company secretarial and governance roles with National Australia Bank, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission, financial services provider AMP, software company Reckon Limited, the former retail group Westfield and the former National Roads and Motorists’ Association Group.

In November, Jumbo finalised its first agreement with a government-owned lottery, as it agreed to supply Western Australia’s Lotterywest with its online software platform and related services for a period of 10 years.

Later that month, the retailer was granted a remote gambling software operating licence by the British Gambling Commission, enabling it to supply its proprietary software-as-a-service (SaaS) online platform to Commission-licensed operators.
