12 September 2008

The Gala Coral Group announced yesterday the promotion of several key employees at the bingo, casino and sports betting operator.

On Oct. 1, Dominic Harrison, currently the company’s chief operating officer, will take over for Neil G. Goulden as chief executive. Mr. Goulden will serve as executive deputy chairman until John M. Kelly steps down as chairman in October 2009. He will then take over Mr. Kelly’s post.

According to a prepared statement, Mr. Kelly has decided to leave the company to pursue other business interests.

“After successfully completing a restructuring of the group’s banking arrangements in May of this year, and the establishment of a new five year plan, I am very excited about the growth opportunities now available to the group,” Mr. Harrison said.
