GamCare Appoints Margot Daly Chair of the Board of Trustees


Hire appoint to Board

GamCare has announced changes to its Board of Trustees, with Sir Ian Prosser to step down as Chair after six years’ service. During this time, Sir Ian has led a transformation at GamCare, leaving the organisation in a stronger, more sustainable position.

Sir Ian will be succeeded by Margot Daly, who will become our new Chair of the Board of Trustees from the 4th June 2021. The role will benefit from Margot’s extensive experience, having held Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer positions in both FTSE listed and privately held companies.

She currently serves as a non-executive director and chair of the audit committee at the NAAFI and was recently appointed as an Inquiry Chair at the UK Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) where she serves as a panel member.

Speaking on the changes, Sir Ian Prosser, GamCare’s outgoing Chair said: “I have no doubt Margot with her significant insight and experience will take GamCare from strength to strength and continue to deliver on the outstanding work GamCare and its staff deliver across the UK.”

Margot Daly said: “I am delighted to take on the role of Chair. The Trustees and I will continue to reinforce the charity’s strong history and important work of providing the very best in clinical care for anyone affected by gambling harms and to continue to develop and improve our services over the coming years. I look forward to working with Anna and her team to build on the new organisational strategy to ensure we reach more people in need of support.”

Commenting on the changes to the Board of Trustees, Anna Hemmings, GamCare CEO said: “I would like to thank Sir Ian for all the work he has done to ensure GamCare is the leading provider of information and support for those affected by gambling harms. Over his six-year tenure, GamCare and its services have grown and improved considerably. I welcome Margot’s appointment and look forward to her knowledge and expertise guiding us towards further success.”
