Silver Heritage Group has announced the appointment of John Dougall as its new chairman. The ASX-listed company operates Tiger Palace Resort Bhairahawa, on Nepal’s border with India.
A former Australian government advisor Dougall – who is also non-executive chairman of technology firms SportsHero and Tinybeans Group – replaces James Edwards and Rodney Hall on the company’s board. Edwards remains as general counsel and company secretary while Hall retains his position as COO.
Silver Heritage said Dougall brings more than 16 years of experience as a director of ASX-listed companies “operating in software, services and gaming”.
“His experience, expertise, hands-on management style and dedication to the highest standards of corporate governance make him an extremely important appointment for the company,” the company said.
Dougall’s appointment comes six months after Philippines-based HatchAsia completed its acquisition of a 92 percent stake in Silver Heritage.
