Hermann Pamminger will take over the role with immediate effect.
The European Casino Association (ECA) has announced the appointment of Hermann Pamminger as its new Secretary General with immediate effect.
Pamminger has worked in the gambling sector for more than 25 years, mainly at Casinos Austria where he started his career since 1991.
During his time at Casinos Austria, he served in a number of senior positions, including a four-year spell as Head of Marketing.
In 2013, Pamminger transferred to the parent company Casinos Austria AG, where he served as Corporate Social Responsibility Officer and assistant to board member Dietmar Hoscher.
“We are confident that Hermann’s many years of experience in the international gambling industry will be an asset for the ECA, especially in these difficult times,” ECA Chairman, Per Jaldung, said.
“Hermann is well known in the industry, has been PR coordinator and a senior advisor to the ECA for many years and knows the legal and regulatory opportunities as well as challenges of our business inside out,” he added.
Pamminger has been actively involved with the ECA since it was founded in the 1990s and served as its Press coordinator since 2006.
The ECA has also announced that Veronika Tisold will step down from the European Affairs Consulting Group (EACON), a contractor to the ECA, in order to go on maternity leave. Tisold will also step back as an executive director to the ECA.
“On behalf of all ECA members, I would like to thank Veronika for her efforts in maintaining a strong, active and independent ECA and wish her and her family all the best for the future,” Jaldung said.
