The new executive director of Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) has been appointed.

Jorn Starck will succeed Andre Wilsenach, who has left the AGCC to take up an academic position at the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV).

Mr Starck said he was "confident" about the island's future as an "e-gambling jurisdiction".

The chairman of the commission said "it was an easy decision to promote from within".

Lord Richard Faulkner said: "Jorn has already over many years been a key player in the AGCC's success as an eGambling regulator, and we are excited about this new chapter in the AGCC's story."

Mr Starck joined the AGCC in 2007 and is currently Director of Regulatory Operations.
