Problem Gambling Foundation CEO resigns
After eight and a half years at the helm Graeme Ramsey will step down as CEO of the Problem Gambling Foundation (PGF) in January.
“This has been a momentous but also deeply satisfying role. It has been an honour to lead a team so dedicated to building healthier communities and prepared to challenge the power of the gambling industry,” Graeme says.
“It is time for new energy leading PGF and a new adventure for me. I am pleased to be leaving PGF in such a strong position and with exciting possibilities ahead.”
The PGF Board will launch a national and international search for a successor in August aiming to have a new CEO in place later this year to enable a smooth handover.
Graeme and wife Josie will be leaving New Zealand for 12 months to run an English Charity in Ghana (www.ghanameetmethere.com). They will return to New Zealand in February 2018.
The PGF Board thank Graeme for his leadership and contribution to New Zealand communities.
Board Chair, Richard Northey, says Graeme will be greatly missed but the work to free New Zealand from gambling harm continues.
