GamCare is pleased to announce Mark Weiss as Deputy CEO, while he continues as Communications and External Affairs Director.

With over a decade in health policy and communication roles, Mark Weiss, joined Deputy CEO at GamCare in May 2022, led policy and public affairs for the UK’s largest hospital specialty during the COVID-19 pandemic. Previously, he contributed to legislative changes at the UK Faculty of Public Health.

At GamCare, Weiss played a pivotal role in external engagement, communications, and responding to the gambling ‘white paper’. In his new role, he collaborates closely with Margot Daly, Executive Chair, providing strategic leadership, acting as an ambassador, and enhancing GamCare’s profile and support initiatives.

Mark Weiss said:

I am delighted to take on the role of Deputy Chief Executive Officer. Since joining in 2022, I have seen first-hand the incredible impact that GamCare’s essential services have had in supporting people to recover from gambling harm and in preventing those harms. As we now work through this transitional period in the future of research, prevention and treatment, I look forward to working in close collaboration with our third sector partners, with GambleAware, the NHS and with government as, together, we build the next chapter of gambling support in Britain.

Margot Daly said:

I am pleased to welcome Mark as the charity’s new Deputy Chief Executive Officer. His first-hand appreciation of the profound positive impact of GamCare’s treatment services and prevention programmes underscores his commitment to the tens of thousands of people who use our services every year. As GamCare navigates the evolving landscape, Mark’s collaborative and evidenced-based approach will be instrumental in driving forward GamCare’s core mission to help those affected by gambling-related harm and to prevent further harm from emerging.
