The Atlantic Lottery Corporation (ALC) has confirmed the appointment of Patrick Daigle as its new president and chief executive, following the departure of Chris Keevill.
Daigle took on the role on an interim basis in February when Keevill left the organisation to pursue a new job in the private sector.
Daigle is one of the longest-serving members of the ALC, having joined the business in 1997. He served as chief financial officer before becoming interim CEO. In his time in these senior leadership roles, he has overseen the finances of the lottery as well as supply chain management, human resources, risk management, board governance, and information security.
“I am honoured to continue in the role of president and CEO and lead the Atlantic Lottery team into this next chapter,” Daigle said. “We will continue to put Atlantic Canadians first, balancing social responsibility with sustainable profits to help support our region.”
ALC chair Sean O’Connor added: “The Board of directors’ succession committee followed a rigorous hiring process to ensure we identified the best candidate for this position. We are pleased that candidate was Patrick Daigle, who brings many years of proven experience and knowledge of Atlantic Lottery’s operations to the role.”
The announcement comes days after the corporation confirmed it has teamed up with Austrian company Neccton to boost its player protection offerings with Neccton’s PlayWise tool.
