New managing director for Century Casinos Africa

Century Casinos has appointed Paul Campbell as new managing director of its South African subsidiary, Century Casinos Africa (Pty) Ltd.

Campbell, who has been working as general manager of the Caledon Hotel, Spa and Casino for two years, will be responsible for the management of Century Casinos’ South African operations, which include the Caledon, Century Casino Newcastle and the food and beverage company, Celebrations.

Campbell has more than 16 years experience in the gaming and entertainment industry, where he mainly held management and senior management positions. He served as director of slots for Storm International in Moscow and deputy slots manager for GrandWest Casino & Entertainment World, Sun International, in Cape Town.

Rossouw Lubbe, who joined Century Casinos Africa as managing director in July last year, will shift his focus from operations to strategic compliance matters, corporate governance and Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment for the South African operations.

“This decision is a result of growing dynamic operations in South Africa and will ensure that our approach to strategic decision- making and corporate governance as well as our commitment to Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment will be augmented to an even higher level,” said Erwin Haitzmann and Peter Hoetzinger, co-CEOs of Century Casinos, Inc.
