Crown Resorts director John Poynton resigns from board and as Burswood casino chair



Crown Resorts has announced another key director — WA-based John Poynton — has resigned from the board and as chairman of the company’s Burswood casino in Perth, with immediate effect.

In a statement, Crown chair Helen Coonan said the decision was “appropriate” after concerns by the New South Wales gaming regulator about Mr Poynton’s perceived lack of independence from a past relationship with majority shareholder James Packer.

“John has agreed to resign in the best interests of Crown and our shareholders, despite no adverse findings by the Commissioner in the ILGA Inquiry in relation to his suitability, integrity or performance,” Ms Coonan said.

“On behalf of the Board, I thank John for his contribution to Crown over many years.”
