Second SkyCity man to join Crown board
FORMER SkyCity board member Bruce Carter has been revealed as the latest addition to Crown Resorts’ new and improved board.
The appointment comes as the James Packer-backed company prepared to front a West Australian royal commission into its conduct.
Crown yesterday told the market that Mr Carter, who recently stepped down as deputy chair of New Zealandbased casino operator SkyCity, would join the company as a non-executive director, subject to regulatory approvals. Mr Carter (inset) is the second SkyCity alumni to join the Crown board after its former CEO Nigel Morrison was appointed as a director in January.
Mr Carter currently chairs the Australian Submarine Corporation and Aventus Capital, and is a director with the Bank of Queensland and AIG Australia. He has also been chair of South Australia’s Economic Development Board and WorkCover SA.
