Kahnawake Gaming Commission Appoints New Chairman

Kahnawake Gaming Commission Appoints New Chairman The announcement recently made by Kahnawake Gaming Commission states that Mark Jocks has been appointed the commission’s new chairman, effective immediately. Dean Montour, whom he succeeded, ended his mandate on March 31, 2015

The Commission has thanked Montour in a statement on Thursday, thanking him for all he has done over the course of the seven years he has been on his position.

Since 1988, Jocks had been involved in the information technology field. He has been employed in the online gaming industry, both in information tech and regulatory support, since 2005. This includes a number of years working for the Kahnawake Gaming Commission.

He had an active role in the overseeing and implementing of the 2010 Commission’s Continuous Compliance Program and Certificate of Good Standing initiatives. During this time, he cooperated closely with licensed operators and approved agents of the Commission.

Among other things, Jock’s previous employment includes the position of senior consultant for large Canadian systems integrators, his clients ranging from small scale community initiatives to departments of the federal government.

  • The new chairman Mark Jocks certainly looks appropriate and very qualified for this job. There have been some scandals in the past linked with the Kahnawake Gaming Commission, so hopefully this change in management will help their proceedings to be more efficient in future.
  • It was under the Kahnawake Gaming Commission's watch that the UltimateBet and Absolute Poker scandals happened so its record as an effective watchdog is far from spotless, to say the least. Then again, Alderney used to be considered one of the best and safest licensing jurisdictions for online gambling sites before the Full Tilt fiasco...
  • I don't know much about the gaming commissions, but this Mark Jocks has an impressive resume suitable to the online gambling industry position. He has already been employed for a number of years by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission and evidently impressed them enough to appoint him the commission's new chairman. Good luck Mark Jocks.
