STATEMENT FROM ROD PHILLIPS

TORONTO – Today I have tendered my resignation from the post of President & Chief Executive Officer of OLG. I am leaving for a leadership position in the private sector that will be announced by the new organization in February. It’s been a tremendous privilege to serve the public alongside OLG employees since 2011. Under the leadership of Philip Olsson, Chair of the Board, and Acting President & CEO, Tom Marinelli, I am confident that OLG is well-positioned to modernize the lottery and gaming industry and to achieve great success in the years to come.

OLG is an Operational Enterprise responsible for province-wide lottery games and gaming facilities. Since 1975, OLG has provided nearly $38 billion to the Province and the people of Ontario. OLG’s annual payments to the Province have helped support health care; education, research, prevention and treatment of problem gambling; amateur sport through the QUEST FOR GOLD program; and local and provincial charities.
