Andy Duncan is stepping down as Camelot UK’s chief executive.
Duncan - who has worked with Camelot six 2011 – is making way for Nigel Railton, currently Camelot Global’s chief executive.
Ahead of his departure, Duncan will work with Railton to ensure a smooth transition.
What’s more, Duncan – who was previously employed as Channel 4’s chief executive – will continue to represent Camelot UK on the committees of the European Lotteries Association, World Lottery Association and the EuroMillions Lottery Operators Board until he stands down over the summer.
As Duncan told reporters, “It has been a great privilege to have led Camelot and the National Lottery through an exciting period.
“I’m proud that total returns to good causes during the last six years exceeded £10 billion, an increase of 25% or nearly £2 billion compared with the previous six years.
“I believe that the purpose at the heart of the National Lottery has never been stronger, changing lives by creating a millionaire nearly every day whilst returning more than £30 million to good causes every week.”
“Andy has achieved a tremendous amount on behalf of National Lottery players, winners and the good causes the National Lottery supports,” added Camelot chairman Jo Taylor.
“We thank him for his contribution to Camelot and the National Lottery and wish him well for the future.”
