Star Execs Step Down

The fallout from investigations into the operations of Australia’s Star Entertainment has claimed three more executives. Resigning in May were Chief Financial Officer Harry Theodore, Chief Casino Officer (NSW) Greg Hawkins and Chief Legal & Risk Officer and Company Secretary Paula Martin. This follows the resignation of CEO Matt Bekier a month earlier.

The Star investigation has uncovered AML violations, VIP irregularities, and illegal credit card transfers.

Executive Chairman John O’Neill will serve as CEO until a replacement for Bekier can be found.
