IAGR Announces New Leadership

The International Association of Gaming Regulators (IAGR) has announced leadership changes following its annual congress in Botswana. The organization has named Ben Haden as president taking over from Dr. Jason Lane, and has named Caroline Kongwa vice president.

Haden brings a wealth of experience to the role. He is currently a director of the Gambling Commission in the United Kingdom and has served as trustee for IAGR for several years, the last two as vice president, delivering two very successful annual conferences.

In tandem with this appointment, Caroline Kongwa assumes the position of vice president, solidifying her continued commitment to IAGR’s mission. Kongwa is the chief strategic adviser of the National Gambling Board in South Africa.

The announcements were made during the culmination of IAGR’s annual conference held in Gaborone, Botswana, where regulators from around the world came together to discuss key industry issues and best practices.
