Lottomatica’s Ludovici Calvi has been reappointed as the President of the Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS) at the association’s most recent AGM in Antwerp.
Joining Calvi, a number of other members have been elected to the Executive Committee for the upcoming 2019-2021 term. Kauhanen Sami from Veikkaus OY has been appointed, alongside EL Mechrafi Younes from MDJS as well as Lee Ilho from Korea’s KTOTO.
Calvi celebrated his re-election: “I am extremely honoured to have been appointed as the President of the Association for yet another term. I am proud of GLMS many achievements of the last term and I am privileged to carry on the mission of growing GLMS network worldwide and disseminating its core values while guaranteeing continuity and strengthening the association.
“I strongly believe that protecting Sport Ethics means safeguarding the passion and integrity of our children and therefore the future of our society. I am fully convinced that GLMS represents a tremendous vehicle not only for our network and its members but also for all other key interested stakeholders, our communities, and our society as a whole.
“I assure all our members, public, private stakeholders and partners, that I will continue with the same energy, passion and dedication to make my best efforts for the global success of GLMS.”
The new committee, as set out in its company statutes, also appointed new members who had been chosen by the founding members. Bolingbroke Rupert, HKJC, was re-appointed to the Executive Committee as the group’s GLMS Vice-President. Danske Spil’s Folmann Niels Erik, Garcia Fabian from La Banca as well as Maillet Gilles from FDJ were all elected to the committee.
“The new executive committee is a geographically diverse powerful group of leaders that will work together on the implementation of our vision and strategy for GLMS,” Calvi added.
“I would like to thank the GLMS General Secretariat and all staff members of GLMS in our 2 hubs for their hard and relentless quality output, setting new standards of excellency for the whole sport integrity sector.”
