Listen to this news articleLISTEN TO THIS ARTICLE:

The Star Entertainment Group, the Australian-based casino operator, has announced the appointment of Daniel Finch as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of its operations in the state of Brisbane.

Finch has nearly two decades of experience in the hospitality sector and has held senior roles at major hotel groups. In his role of overseeing the gaming venues in Brisbane, Finch will report directly to Robbie Cooke, the company's Group CEO.

The Star Brisbane is the latest venue from the Group and is due to open in the state in 2024. Senior leadership at The Star believes Finch is the ideal candidate to oversee the opening of its new development later this year because he has experience in launching new venues.

Finch is due to take up the new position with Star Entertainment by the mid-point of February this year; this is subject to approval from all the regulatory bodies.

I am elated to be joining The Star Entertainment Group in what I believe is the most important and exciting time in the history of the business. The opening of The Star Brisbane in 2024 will be significant not just for this business but for Queensland. We are excited to be taking on the responsibility of driving domestic and international tourism by delivering a world-class venue and experiences that locals will be proud to experience all year round.
