Crown Resorts have just released a statement confirming that John Poynton, the chairman and director of its Perth casino and a director of Crown, had resigned with immediate effect.

The Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority had advised Crown that it was appropriate Poynton step down due to a perceived lack of independence because of his past relationship with James Packer.

John has been a member of the Board of Crown since November 2018 and a director of Crown Perth since 2004. During that time, he has been enormously committed as a director, Chairman of Crown Perth and through his service on Board committees.

The Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority (ILGA) has advised Crown that it considers it appropriate that John step down as a director of all companies within the Crown group, due to a perceived lack of independence arising out of his past relationship with Mr James Packer and CPH, notwithstanding the recent termination of John’s consultancy arrangement with CPH.
