Leise will remain with the company until 1 July 2025 for various strategic projects, while Van Slooten will start his Director of Operations role on 1 October of this year.

Petra de Ruiter, CEO of Holland Casino, said: “With Hans, we have found a worthy internal successor to Noël as director of operations. Hans has a lot of experience both inside and outside Holland Casino. His strength is that he is close to the people, both our guests and our employees. In addition, I am extremely grateful to Noël for his years of dedication and commitment to Holland Casino. I have great admiration for the fact that someone who has been with a company for so long can still think so fresh about the future. That is not given to everyone. I am pleased that Noël is prepared to use his knowledge and expertise for Holland Casino in the coming months.”

Incoming director of operations Hans van Slooten said: “It is a great honor to succeed Noël. I have great respect for his wonderful career, his commitment and inexhaustible drive for our beautiful company. Although it will not always be easy to follow in his footsteps, I will take on my responsibilities with and for the operation with dedication. I look forward to meeting more colleagues in the branches and at the head office from October.”

Director of Operations Noël Leise said: “When you have worked for a great company like ours for almost 40 years, it is difficult to choose the right moment to pass the baton. After all, Holland Casino is such a part of my life that it cannot help but hurt a little. I am happy that I can still be meaningful for the future of our company in a different way in the coming period. I have every confidence that Hans will fill the role of Director of Operations very well in his own way and I wish him every success with that.”
