The Star Sydney has appointed experienced casino executive Janelle Campbell as its new CEO, replacing Scott Wharton who resigned last year.

Campbell’s two decades of experience includes senior roles at Conrad Jupiters and Treasury Casinos Queensland and Melco Resorts & Entertainment.

“Janelle is a highly regarded, very experienced and extremely talented senior casino executive,” said Robbie Cooke, The Star Group CEO and managing director.

“Janelle has strong leadership skills, with experience in overseeing large-scale operations managing teams of up to 1,200 and a great track record in developing and implementing strategic business plans.

“I look forward to working with Janelle on our ongoing transformation program at The Star Sydney as we pursue our No.1 objective of returning our Sydney casino to suitability.”

Campbell said she was excited to be joining The Star at a pivotal moment in the company’s history.

“I am clear on the strategic priorities, including the urgent focus on ensuring our remediation actions drive a return to suitability and the removal of the existing licence suspension,” she said.

“In parallel we need to ensure that building the trust and confidence of our regulators, guests, team members, other stakeholders and the broader community is always front of mind while building a culture of high-performance excellence.

“We want to be known for delivering world-class experiences and I’m looking forward to The Star Sydney shaping a successful future of sustainable long-term growth.”
