Former Macquarie bank chief executive Richard Sheppard is to join the board of casino operator Echo Entertainment.
Mr Sheppard spent more than 30 years with Macquarie, including four years as managing director and chief executive of Macquarie Bank.
He will join Echo Entertainment as a non-executive director once all regulatory approvals are received, Echo chairman John O’Neill said in a statement on Wednesday.
The appointment continues a period of renewal for the company’s board which began with the departure of former chairman John Story in June.
Echo operates The Star in Sydney, the Treasury casino in Brisbane, and Jupiters Gold Coast and Jupiters Townsville.
