René Jansen, presently leading the board of the Kansspelautoriteit (KSA), has announced he won’t be seeking another term once his current tenure ends. The reason behind his decision is his approaching retirement age by the close of 2023.
While Jansen’s term is scheduled to end on October 1, 2024, he’s likely to leave his post on July 1, 2024. The KSA has already started the process of finding Jansen’s replacement, revealing that the General Administrative Service (ABD) will manage the recruitment. The Netherlands’ Minister for Legal Protection will officially appoint the next chair, who will then serve a six-year term. Those interested in the role can submit their applications until November 12, 2023, with the selected candidate expected to assume duties on July 1, 2024.
Reflecting on his time at KSA, Jansen shared his experience. He highlighted his dedication to safeguarding the Dutch market from potential gambling frauds and other related issues. “It has been a pleasure to lead the KSA,” he remarked, pointing out the significant challenges awaiting his successor. Jansen emphasized the immense duty the KSA bears towards the Dutch market. He characterized the role as one that “requires creativity, innovation and decisiveness.” He wrapped up by stressing the KSA’s vital societal role.
