David Attenborough, MD and Chief Executive Officer
The merger of Tabcorp and Tatts Group in late 2017 created a world-class gambling entertainment company, diversified across Lotteries, Gaming Services and Wagering and Media.
The company has 2 million-plus registered customers and Australia’s largest retail footprint. Tabcorp’s operations create value for its stakeholders, returning more than A$1.4 billion in taxes on gambling sales to state and federal governments and $1 billion in racing industry funding each year. Tabcorp’s operations also return $700 million in annual commissions to the venues which distribute its products throughout Australia.
As the Managing Director and CEO of Tabcorp, David Attenborough now leads one of the world’s largest publicly listed, diversified gambling entertainment businesses in the world.
He heads Tabcorp at a time when the gambling sector continues to change in response to community attitudes, with governments and regulators intervening to address excessive gambling advertising, illegal offshore wagering, betting on synthetic lotteries and the lack of taxes paid by corporate bookmakers.
David will talk about bringing the Tabcorp and Tatts businesses together and offer his perspective on the challenges and opportunities presented by the evolving gambling landscape.
David Attenborough is the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Tabcorp, a position he has held since 2011.
Tabcorp is a world-class diversified gambling entertainment group and an ASX50 company with more than 5,000 employees.
In December 2017 Tabcorp combined with Tatts Group. Tabcorp now operates the iconic brands Tatts, TAB, NSW Lotteries, Golden Casket, SA Lotteries, Keno, Sky Racing and Sky Sports Radio. The company also delivers products and services to the gaming industry through Tabcorp Gaming Solutions, MAX and Ebet.
Tabcorp operates Australia’s largest retail network and the company’s operations deliver hundreds of millions of dollars in returns to the community each year. Tabcorp is the biggest financial contributor to the Australian racing industry.
Prior to joining Tabcorp in 2010, David was the chief executive officer of Phumelela Gaming and Leisure Limited, the leading wagering operator in South Africa.
