Henry Meijdam has been elected as the new chairman of the Dutch gambling association Van Kansspelen. He was chosen at a general meeting of members last week.
Meijdam has served in political leadership roles, including as mayor of Zaanstad and Lelystad and deputy for the province of North Holland. He has also worked as an advisor and director for several organisations and companies. He replaces Aad Kobus, who has been serving as interim chairman of Van Kansspelen.
Meijdam said: “As chairman, I would like to work together with members. They have important issues on their agenda, which I am happy to commit to. But first of all, I want to get to know members and the various stakeholders. Many Dutch people enjoy our activities. We would like to serve them in a modern way, where fun and responsible gaming goes hand in hand.”
Kobus said: “We have found an experienced director as chairman in Henry Meijdam. As a sector, we face various challenges in and around politics and entrepreneurship. With Henry’s experience and profile, we want to put Van Kansspelen further on the map and best represent the sector.”
