Shelley White has announced that she will be retiring at the end of the year, stepping down from her position as CEO of the Responsible Gambling Council.

Retiring in December, White has served as CEO of the RGC for almost eight years, joining the organisation in February 2017. The council has already begun its recruitment process for a new CEO.

Congratulating White on her upcoming retirement, the RGC stated in a LinkedIn post: “Shelley’s commitment to RGC and the people, organisations and communities we serve globally is unparalleled. We will celebrate Shelley and the remarkable contribution she has made to RGC as her retirement date approaches.”

White published her own LinkedIn post about her upcoming retirement, praising the RGC and their responsible gambling work for giving her a “worthwhile, exciting and fulfilling journey”, while also taking the time to promote the vacant CEO position.

“It has been an honour to serve as CEO of the Responsible Gambling Council,” noted White.

“I feel so privileged to have had the opportunity to work with such an outstanding board of directors, staff team and stakeholders over the years. Together we have advanced RGC’s vital mission, vision and values. 

White continued: “Today, RGC is a global leader that is having a profound impact on creating a responsible gambling ecosystem. I feel so fortunate to have been involved in this worthwhile, exciting and fulfilling journey.

“There is so much more to do to advance safer gambling, prevention education, player health & well-being, within Canada and internationally. RGC is well-positioned to continue to be a global leader in responsible gambling.

“I highly recommend this important CEO role to humanitarian and entrepreneurial leaders, who want to lead a dynamic, fast-paced social enterprise, as well as collaborate with a phenomenal team and group of stakeholders.”

Before joining the RGC, White spent close to 14 years as the CEO of United Way of Peel Region, a social services organisation in the Peel Region of the Greater Toronto Area.
