CEO Announced for Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation
22 August 2012 at 12:05 pm

Human resources management expert, Serge Sardo has been appointed to lead what is described as Australia’s first independent body dedicated to preventing and treating problem gambling.

The Victorian Government has appointed Sardo as the Chief Executive Officer of the newly established
Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation (VRGF).

Sardo will join the inaugural Chair Professor Bruce Singh and Deputy Chair Michael Ball and other board members of the VRGF.

The Victorian Minister for Gaming Michael O’Brien said that Serge Sardo’s experience in both senior executive
roles and in counselling and welfare would help lead the Foundation in the effective delivery of a broad range of services, including research, counselling and treatment services, and communication and education
campaigns.

“Mr Sardo brings 28 years experience to the Foundation from the private and government sectors, most recently with a focus on human resources and organisational psychology,” O’Brien said.

“His experience in senior leadership roles will complement that of the Board and the Foundation’s specialist teams in achieving its important objectives.

“For the past five years, Mr Sardo has worked tirelessly to establish the Australian Human Resources Institute and has previously held positions as CEO at the Australian Institute of Management and senior roles in human
resources management.

“Mr Sardo’s extensive business experience is coupled with years of work as a family counsellor and in welfare services and employment rehabilitation,” O’Brien said.

Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation was set up with an investment of $150 million over four years officially began operations in July.
