Dutch gaming company Holland Casino has promoted Malinda Miener to the position of chief compliance officer.
Miener, a former Royal Netherlands Navy officer and general counsel at TNO, joined the operator last year as director of compliance. She has since been responsible for areas such as prevention policy and compliance with the law to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing.
Holland Casino said Miener’s appointment, which also sees her join the company’s board, is in line with its mission to offer safe and responsible gaming to the Dutch public.
Miener said: “Responsible and safe gambling is more urgent and topical than ever. Now that numerous new and foreign players are entering the Dutch market, it is up to Holland Casino to keep raising the bar. Taking that social responsibility is part of Holland Casino. Reliability, involvement and integrity are of paramount importance to us.
“The aim is to offer our guests a fun and safe experience in our casinos. The experience I gained at the Ministry of Defense comes in handy: taking responsibility together and being decisive in implementation are my core values. I consider it an honor and I think it is important that I can now monitor and promote responsible gambling at the highest level at Holland Casino.”
Holland Casino added that Miener’s appointment is subject to review and a positive decision by the financial regulator, DNB.
Willem Bröcker, chairman of Holland Casino’s supervisory board, said: “Holland Casino has an exemplary role when it comes to caring for its guests. We are embedding this in the organization with the appointment of Malinda Miener as chief compliance officer. She has a proven track record when it comes to integrity and corporate responsibility, also within Holland Casino.”
