Tim Shepherd to leave Silver Heritage Group

Silver Heritage’s co-founder and president of business development & marketing, Tim Shepherd, is stepping down after 14 years with the company.

According to a filing to the Australian Stock Exchange, Shepherd is set to leave the company on September 30, 2017, but will remain as an independent external consultant commencing October 1, 2017 - giving the Tiger Palace team and company guidance through the opening and launch of Tiger Palace Resort Bhairahawa.

Managing Director & CEO Mike Bolsover in an email announcement said: "Tim has given a great deal to Silver Heritage since we started the business and his experience across Asia and in particular India and Nepal means the Company will benefit from his guidance through the opening and launch of Tiger Palace and in the ramp up phase into 2018.”

Tim Shepherd said: "It has been a wonderful journey from start up to listing, but it's time now to let a dedicated Nepal-based team let Tiger Palace be all it can be. I will continue to help Silver Heritage wherever I can in the months to come. Asia remains the most exciting gaming market on the planet and I am very much staying in the industry, based out of Hong Kong."

The same filing also announced the appointment of Robert Benussi as an additional independent non-executive director with effect August 7, 2017.

Benussi brings extensive experience in finance, corporate advisory, stockbroking and business development to the Silver Heritage board.
