Maybe Marja Appelman will be mistaken in the beginning when she drives to her new workplace.
From 1 August she will be working as Director of Housing Market at the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations. And that ministry is within easy reach of the office of the Gaming Authority.
"My job is done," said Appelman in the press release about her departure.
An official evaluation by the Gaming Authority concluded last year that the organization is ready for the gigantic amount of work that will come when the Remote Gambling Act is finally adopted.
Appelman therefore considers this a suitable time to transfer the baton:
"It was also important that the evaluation concluded that the Gaming Authority's knowledge of supervision is state of the art. A beautiful milestone, but also a sign for me that it is time to look further.
Both for me and for the Gaming Authority it is time for the next phase. "
Jan Suyver, chairman of the board of directors of the Gaming Authority, adds:
"With Marja we say goodbye to an inspiring director. (…) Marja Appelman ensured a pleasant working atmosphere with an eye for the individual development of the employees. We're going to miss her. "
By the way, Suyver itself is leaving soon. His term of office ends on September 30, just like that of fellow board member Henk Kesler. For convenience, Appelman, Suyver and Kesler will give a joint farewell party on 8 October.
No successor for Marja Appelman
The press release from the Gaming Authority shows that there will be no immediate successor for Marja Appelman. A new chairman and a new member of the Executive Board will take up office on 1 October – both as full-time jobs. The current third member of the Executive Board, Joop Pot, will remain in office.
The new board of directors will take over the duties of the director from 1 October.
