NOGA Director Peter-Paul de Goeij Steps Down

After five years as Director of the Dutch Online Gambling Association (NOGA), Peter-Paul de Goeij has stepped down from his role.

Eric Konings, who has been with NOGA since 2022, will take over as interim director. He aims to leverage his company knowledge and previous experience to guide the association through this transitional period. Former Staatsloterij CEO Frans van Steenis will support Konings during this change.

“We are very grateful to Peter-Paul for his efforts over the past 5 years, in which he has excellently shaped the transformation from SpeelVerantwoord to NOGA. As a result, NOGA has been able to properly represent the interests of its members in a tumultuous period for the industry. We are confident that this line will be continued under Eric as interim director. However, we do not expect the coming period to be any less turbulent. That is why we as a board have decided to initiate the strategic reorientation,” said Remko de Boer, chairman of the board of directors of NOGA.

Peter-Paul de Goeij reflected on his tenure: “The past few years have been hectic, with the opening of the Dutch online gambling market as the absolute highlight. I am now stepping down, but I am convinced that the sector will continue to strive for a safe and responsible gaming offer. That is and remains the best way to achieve optimal consumer protection. I thank the board of NOGA for the trust they have placed in me over the past five years and I hand over the baton to Eric with a clear conscience.”

Eric Konings acknowledged the challenges ahead: “The industry is facing a number of major challenges in the current political and social climate, and I look forward to helping NOGA members with this. In addition, NOGA is explicitly exploring how the representation of the industry’s interests can be organised in a future-proof manner. I am pleased that Frans van Steenis is fulfilling the role of explorer to shape this process with me.”

Frans van Steenis emphasized the need for collaboration: “A lot is happening in the gambling sector at the moment. Licensed providers, policymakers, and society benefit from more clarity and better cooperation. I want to explore how bridges can be built between all parties involved in the gambling dossier.
