Galea Leaves LGA
By Staff
Malta’s Lotteries and Gaming Authority (LGA) has announced the resignation of Chief Executive Officer Mario Galea with immediate effect with Michael Gonzi appointed to the role until a permanent successor can be found.

Although no reason was given for Galea’s resignation, it could have something to do with July’s appointment of a new Board of Directors under the leadership of Nicholas Xuereb and possible conflicts of interest.

Galea joined the LGA in 2004 and co-authored the body’s first Remote Gaming Regulations later that year. These made Malta the first European Union nation to regulate online gambling and the LGA has since grown with the expansion of the industry in Malta. It recently embarked on a strategic change programme intended to ‘strengthen Malta’s regulatory regime, making it the quality jurisdiction that both consumers and investors in the industry expect’.
