Australia.- Aquis Entertainment, the operator of Casino Canberra, has reported through a company filing that Alex Chow will retire as non-executive director. According to the company, his decision comes as a result of continued Covid-19 lockdowns in his home country, Hong Kong, which have made it difficult for Chow to continue his desired level of involvement with the group.
Chow said: “with the recent appointment of Mark Purtill to the Board of Directors, I am confident that my areas of expertise are well covered within the group, and I can retire from the Board proud of what we have achieved over the past number of years in very difficult circumstances.
“I wish the company every success for the future, and I know that the continuing Directors are very competent to continue with the plans we have set and implemented over recent years.”
Russell Shields, Aquis Entertainment chairman added: “While I am sorry to see Alex go, I can certainly sympathise with the technological challenges he has been experiencing.
“Alex’s input over the years has been very valuable, we have been through some interesting times together as a result of Covid-19 and I wish him all the very best for the future”.
The company has not yet defined who will be Chow’s replacement.
