Casino operator Crown Resorts (ASX:CWN) has found a new director in the form of former SkyCity (ASX:SKC) deputy chair Bruce Carter, pending probity clearance.

The appointment was announced on Monday morning in a bid to replenish Crown’s depleted board, following the departures of five directors and CEO Ken Barton. The company believes Carter’s experience from state and federal government inquiries can be of great assistance in dealing with royal commissions into its Victoria and Western Australia’s casino licenses.
He also currently holds directorships at Bank of Queensland and AIG Australia.
