Richard Callandar has been appointed SkyCity Queenstown and
Wharf Casino general manager, replacing Michelle Ballie, who
has been appointed general manager of SkyCity Hamilton.
Mr Callandar is SkyCity Auckland's table games general
SkyCity Entertainment Group Group Services and human
resources general manager Grainne Troute said the
appointments showed the company would continue to have strong
operational expertise at both regional properties.
Ms Ballie had been with SkyCity since it first opened in
Auckland and her ''extensive company and industry
experience'' had been an integral part in building the
company's presence in Queenstown.
Mr Callandar was described as ''an asset'' to the SkyCity
team and the company was confident he would continue to make
''significant contributions'' to the business in Queenstown,
Ms Troute said.
