Effective September 7, 2019, Greg Moore will assume the role of BCLC’s Interim President and CEO while Jim Lightbody goes on medical leave to undergo cancer treatment and recovery.
Mr. Lightbody’s leave from his role as BCLC President and CEO will commence after September 6, 2019, and is expected to extend into early 2020.
Mr. Moore joined the Board of BCLC in November, 2018. He has a long career in public service. He was the Mayor of the City of Port Coquitlam from 2008 to 2018 and served as Chair of the Metro Vancouver Board of Directors from 2011 to 2018.
Given the temporary nature of the role, Mr. Moore will remain based in the Lower Mainland and expects to divide his time between BCLC’s head office in Kamloops and its Vancouver office.
BCLC conducts and manages lottery, casino, bingo and online gambling on behalf of the province for the benefit of British Columbians. Last year, BCLC generated over $1.4 billion to support provincial programs, communities, charitable and community organizations.
