Ken Barton appointed as director at Crown

Crown Resorts on Wednesday announced that group CEO and managing director Ken Barton has been appointed as a director of the company. 

The news follows Barton’s appointment as chief executive officer and managing director, made effective on January 24, 2020 – which was part of an overall management shakeup. 

Barton previously served as a chief financial officer since March 2010 and has been CEO of Crown Digital since Feb 2017. 

On those same dates, Crown executive chairman John Alexander stepped down from his role and was replaced by non-executive chairman Helen Coonan, a nine-year board member.
