Fiona Palmer is CEO of GAMSTOP – the UK’s national online self-exclusion scheme which has been running as a multi-operator solution since April 2018. She has worked in the online gambling industry for the past 10 years, most recently as Director of Social Responsibility at the Remote Gambling Association.
Previously she headed up the Compliance Team at Sky Betting & Gaming where her passion for Social Responsibility led her to become a leading advocate of a number of cross industry steering groups. Speaking of her current role heading up the Not for Profit organisation GAMSTOP, she says: “We have come a long way in the last 18 months and feel confident that integration with the scheme, which is currently providing many thousands of vulnerable individuals with peace of mind across a wide range of gambling websites, will soon become a licence condition. This will ensure that all websites licensed by the Gambling Commission will need to integrate with GAMSTOP so that those who wish to self-exclude from online gambling have a free, simple way of doing so. This has been a focus of mine for many years and I am delighted to be part of its development."
