Gambling awareness and addiction charity, GambleAware, has appointed a new CEO this week, welcoming Zoe Osmond on board. Osmond will be replacing Marc Etches in the position.

This has come as welcome news to the organisation who says Osmond brings a “wealth of knowledge” to the role, credited for her ability to aid strong business growth. 

Osmond has assumed many chief executive and managing partner roles in her time, having previously been the CEO of National Advertising Benevolent Society; a UK charity which supports those working in the media and advertising sectors.

Commenting on Osmond’s appointment, Kate Lampard CBE, chair of GambleAware said: 

“In the past two and a half years that I and trustees have worked with Zoë, she has demonstrated to us that she fits the criteria we are looking for perfectly. Her knowledge and experience of GambleAware means she can hit the ground running, something that is of particular importance when starting a leadership role during a pandemic.”

“Her ability to work with a wide range of subject matter experts and her experience of transforming a charity, building businesses, and leading change will be instrumental in taking GambleAware to the next stage in its development.”

Osmond added: 

“GambleAware is at an exciting moment in its history, and over the past ten years, Marc Etches has done a phenomenal job in leading the charity to this point. It is a critical time for the gambling sector and the recent pledge of up to £100 million from the gambling industry means this is a significant time to shape and drive forward GambleAware’s vital work and develop its own expertise.”

“I am excited by the prospect of transformation and the opportunities now available to GambleAware to work with other organisations to prevent gambling harm and I look forward to taking on the challenge.”
