Northlands Park has announced the appointment of Chris Roberts to the post of venue director.

For the past five years Roberts has been director of Great Canadian Gaming’s Ontario operations at Georgian and Flamboro Downs. Great Canadian is also the parent company of Hastings.

“Chris brings valuable industry experience that will complement Northlands collaborative work in the community to create a balanced and sustainable gaming program,” said Richard L. Andersen, Northlands president and CEO.

“Joining an organization with the history, team, and vision of Northlands is humbling,” said Roberts. “I’ve only been here a few days and the passion is contagious. I’m excited to work with the Northlands Park team and our industry colleagues on what lies ahead.”
