Australia.- After being found unsuitable to hold its licence for its new Sydney casino, Crown Resorts has begun to make changes with a view of gaining the green light to open the Barangaroo venue by May.

Guy Jalland and Michael Johnston, both nominees of founder and majority shareholder James Packer’s holding company, have resigned from the board.

Now the operator’s chair, Helen Coonan, has said that more changes are being implemented and that the company will work closely with New South Wales’ regulator the ILGA.

She said in a statement: “While we have already taken a number of important steps to improve our governance, compliance and culture, I recognize from the Commissioner’s report we have much more to do.”

Coonan also thanked Philip Crawford, head of the ILGA for his establishment of a constructive dialogue.
