The Star Sydney CEO Scott Wharton announces resignation
Scott Wharton, the CEO of Star Entertainment’s Sydney property, has recently announced his resignation, which will be effective at the end of the month.
In addition to being the Chief Executive Officer of Star Entertainment’s establishment in Sydney, Wharton was also the corporation’s Head of Transformation. The company has already confirmed that following his resignation at the end of the month, a restructure will take place and two new hires will be made for both of Wharton’s previous positions.
One of the two upcoming appointments has already been decided on, as the company’s Transformation General Manager, Nicola Burke, will be promoted to the Head of Transformation role.
The Chief Executive Officer and MD of Star Entertainment, Robbie Cooke, commented:
“We would like to thank Scott for his dedication and contributions to our company. As we strive to regain the trust of the community, the foundations laid by Scott ever since his appointment in the summer of last year will be instrumental for us to achieve success in that regard. Furthermore, our organization is in an excellent position to announce the new Chief Executive Officer of our Sydney casino in the very near future, while we have already selected a candidate to lead our Transformation division.”
Scott Wharton remarked:
“I would like to thank everyone I worked with throughout my time at the company, including Robbie and our board members, for their support. Working with such a professional and dedicated team has been quite a rewarding experience.”
This news is the latest one of its kind in Star Entertainment’s troublesome recent past, as the company has been investigated and fined for numerous failures in a couple of Australian states. Most recently, the company pleaded guilty to several violations in a Queensland court, the fine for which has not yet been decided at the time of writing.
