Lynda Cavanaugh has been appointed in the place of Greg Moore, the BCLC’s previous interim president and CEO.
Canada.- The British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) has appointed Lynda Cavanaugh as its interim president and chief executive.
Cavanaugh is replacing Greg Moore, who will step down as of today (January 22) to pursue an opportunity in the private sector.
Moore took on the temporary role in September 2019, to stand in for Jim Lightbody who is currently on medical leave for cancer treatment.
The new interim president and CEO has extensive experience in public service, having previously served as assistant deputy minister in the Ministries of the Attorney General and Public Safety and Solicitor General.
Cavanaugh will work from the Vancouver office until the current pandemic restrictions permit her to travel to the head office in Kamloops, the BCLC said in a press release.
The BCLC’s work includes public enquiries such as its recent investigation into money laundering after Canadian media reports of criminal activity at casinos in the country.
It recently sponsored a bill that would facilitate the legalisation of gambling on single sporting events in Canada, which has been formally reintroduced to parliament.
