Star Entertainment Group has appointed Geoff Hogg as acting chief executive, adding to his responsibilities as The Star’s chief casino officer in NSW and Queensland.

Star Entertainment has also appointed Ben Heap as its new interim chairman.

The new appointments come as outgoing Star Entertainment executive chairman John O’Neill and Star director Richard Sheppard gave their take on events to a NSW inquiry into the casino giant’s conduct following a damning royal commission into rival Crown Resorts.

The inquiry is delving into The Star’s suitability to hold its casino licence in Sydney.
