David Green first became associated with the gaming industry in 1995, when he was appointed as a member of the Gaming Supervisory Authority of South Australia. He subsequently was appointed Chairman of the GSA, and of its successor, the Independent Gambling Authority. In 2001, he re-located to Macau, in his capacity as a partner of Arthur Andersen, to act as principal consultant to the Macau government in relation to its gaming liberalization. He subsequently performed a similar role for the Singapore Tourism Board, while then with PwC, in connection with the legalization of casinos in 2004/2005. In 2010 he formed his own consulting business, Newpage Consulting, and has since provided advice and support to Asian governments, professional firms, gaming operators and industry investors across a broad spectrum of gaming matters. He spent more than 14 years advising the Macau regulator, DICJ, during arguably the greatest expansion of gaming in the history of the industry.
David returned to live in Australia from Macau in 2016, but continues to maintain close connections with the Asian gaming industry. In particular, he is a non-Executive Director of ASX-listed Donaco International, which operates casinos in Cambodia and Vietnam, and the former Chairman of Silver Heritage Group, which developed the first integrated resort in Nepal. He continues to be regularly engaged by PwC member firms, banks and operators to provide subject matter expertise in regard to European and Asian jurisdictions.
David is qualified as both a lawyer and accountant, but practices as neither. His resume includes a period as Commissioner for Consumer Affairs in South Australia.
