Gespa announces new president Jean-Michel Cina

7 Dec 2021

The gaming regulator of Switzerland, Gespa, announced a new president of the board, Jean-Michel Cina, who will replace the former president Jean-Francois Roth.

Roth was the president of Gespa, formerly known as Comlot, which deals with gaming for French-speaking players and was founded in 2006. Cina’s term will begin on 1 January 2022 and end on 31 December 2025. Before being the president, Cina spent 12 years as a state counsellor for the canton of Valais from 2005 to 2017.

Moreover, as vice president of the cantonal specialist directors’ conference Lottery Market, Cina’s most recent role saw him serve as chairman of the board at Swiss broadcasting corporation SSG SSR.

Elections Brings New Faces On-Board

At the same time, Mirjam Webber and Professor Pascal Mahon have been elected as members of Gespa’s board of directors, replacing Bruno Erni and Jean-Marc Rapp, who are vacating their positions.

Gespa's announcement mentioned: “Gespa and the employees of the office thank their outgoing president and the members of the Board for their long-term commitment. As members from the very beginning, they were significantly involved in the successful establishment of the authority and have done a lot to strengthen and professionalize supervision in the field of lotteries, sports betting and skill money games.”
