Frits Huffnagel has stepped down as chairman of the Dutch gaming association VAN Kansspelen. Vice chair Aad Kobus will take over the position of chairman on an interim basis. Huffnagel will now concentrate on his communications agency, Castro Communicatie.
“It is with great pleasure and dedication that I have brought the interests of the members of VAN Kansspelen to the attention of government in The Hague in recent years. Under my chairmanship, a lot of hard work has been done on the image of the industry and on reaching the right discussion partners,” Frits Huffnagel said.
“This has led to the necessary results. And that has proved necessary, especially in this year when corona hit the industry so hard. The corona crisis is not over yet, but now that the Remote Gambling Act (KoA) will be introduced on 1 March 2021, it feels to me that my most important task is over after more than seven years,” he added.
