Janelle Campbell Appointed as Chief Executive of Operations in Sydney for Star Entertainment Group
After a significant organisational restructure, Star Entertainment Group has appointed Janelle Campbell as the chief executive of operations in Sydney, making her the final CEO hire in their reorganisation. In her new role, Campbell will be responsible for overseeing activities at Star Sydney, which is the second largest casino in Australia.

Campbell brings with her more than twenty years of experience in the casino industry. Her most recent role was as the senior vice president for finance in Macau at Melco Crown Entertainment. Prior to this, she served as the chief financial officer at Oaks Hotels and Resorts and held various senior finance positions at Conrad Jupiters and Treasury Casinos Queensland. Before entering the casino sector, Campbell was a financial controller at Conrad Treasury in Brisbane.

Expressing her excitement at joining Star, Campbell stated, “I am excited to be joining Star at a pivotal moment in the company’s history. I’ll help shape the future for a venue that has been an iconic Sydney destination for almost 30 years.” She also emphasized the importance of strategic priorities and building a culture of high-performance excellence.

Robbie Cooke, the group CEO and managing director, expressed his delight at welcoming Campbell to the team and highlighted her extensive experience as a senior casino executive. Campbell’s appointment marks the completion of CEO recruitment for Star destinations in Sydney, Gold Coast, and Brisbane. The organization has been establishing property-based operational business units in these locations. Each regional CEO will report directly to Cooke.

In the wake of being sanctioned in Queensland, the group was found “unsuitable” to hold a license in the state. As a result, Star was given a deadline to resolve these issues, and their operations in Queensland have been closely monitored. Additionally, the group now has until 31 May 2024 to satisfy the demands of Queensland authorities.
