British Casino Association Loses Chair

6 February 2009
Penny Cobham is standing down this spring as chair of the British Casino Association, which recently lost two of its biggest members, Gala Coral and Rank, and a large chunk of income. The association denies any connection between the departure of the two companies and Ms. Cobham's resignation.

According to the association, Ms. Cobham had planned to stand down in December but they asked her to stay on longer.

Ms. Cobham will move on to chair VisitEngland, the tourism promotion body.
