Jon Duffy, Senior Vice President for Corporate Assurance & Regulatory Affairs at Genting Casinos UK, has won awards in two categories at the fourth annual Global Regulatory Awards. The first one is for Outstanding Individual Contribution to Responsible Gambling and the second one is for Chief Compliance Officer of the Year.

These were awarded for significantly raising the profile of compliance and responsible gambling within the Genting organisation and leadership team. The Global Regulatory Awards recognise excellence in and commitment to responsible gambling and regulatory compliance.

Meanwhile, Genting UK’s Anti-Money Laundering Department won the award for Head of Anti Money Laundering (AML) / AML Team of the Year. The award recognises an individual or a team that has taken measures to align the business in a proactive manner with the various AML Directives set by regulators in the markets/jurisdictions in which the company operates.

“As a business, we put player protection first so I’m incredibly proud to be accepting these awards on Genting’s behalf in recognition of how seriously we take our responsibility to our customers. This year the business has faced challenges unlike any other, but we have taken every possible step to ensure our venues remain safe and welcoming environments,” Jon Duffy said.

The Global Regulatory Awards were for the first time held virtually amid on-going COVID-19 safety concerns.
