The NSW Government has appointed a new member to the board of the Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority (ILGA).

ILGA is a statutory decision-maker responsible for a range of liquor, registered club, music festival and gaming machine regulatory functions including determining licensing and disciplinary matters under the gaming and liquor legislation.

Chris Honey, one of the founding partners of McGrathNicol, has been appointed to the ILGA board for three years.

ILGA chairperson Ms Caroline Lamb welcomed the appointment of Chris Honey to the ILGA board.

“Mr Honey has considerable skills and experience in the advisory and restructuring field, including working extensively in highly regulated sectors, which will be invaluable for the board,” Ms Lamb said.

“He held the role of National Risk Partner for McGrathNicol and conducted investigations for major banks and other secured lenders.

“People appointed to the ILGA board must be of the highest integrity and promote fair, transparent and efficient decision-making.

“Mr Honey clearly meets these requirements.”

Mr Honey has a strong financial and accounting background, having worked in the advisory and restructuring field for almost four decades in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Europe and the Middle East.

He retired as a partner of McGrathNicol in 2015 and remains a consultant to the New Zealand business, as well as being honorary treasurer of the Royal Humane Society of NSW.

Mr Honey commenced his term as an ILGA board member on 12 February 2024.

His appointment brings the ILGA board membership to six.

Mr Honey joins chairperson Caroline Lamb, deputy chairperson Sarah Dinning and members Cathie Armour, Jeffrey Loy APM and Dr Suzanne Craig.
