The Minister of Internal Affairs Nathan Guy has announced the appointment of Graeme Reeves as Chief Gambling Commissioner and Lisa Hansen as a new Gambling Commissioner.

“Graeme Reeves from Wellington is a former MP with a wide range of business, legal and governance experience. He will be the Chief Gambling Commissioner after six years of experience on the Commission.

“Lisa Hansen from Wellington brings a strong legal background and public policy expertise to her new role as Commissioner.

Both terms commence on 1 January 2011. As Chief Gambling Commissioner, Mr Reeves will serve until 17 June 2012 while Ms Hansen will serve a three-year term concluding on 31 December 2013.
