Earlier today, Chris Keevill, President and CEO, shared he is stepping down from his role as President and CEO of Atlantic Lottery to return to the private sector, and the Board has respectfully accepted his decision. Atlantic Lottery wants to take this opportunity to thank Chris for his contributions over the past year.

As part of its established succession plan, Atlantic Lottery is pleased to announce that the Board has appointed Patrick Daigle, Chief Financial Officer, to the role of interim CEO, effective immediately. The Board will begin an executive search process for a permanent CEO in the coming months.

Daigle has been with Atlantic Lottery since 1997. In his current role as Interim President and CEO, Patrick brings more than two decades of proven senior leadership in a number of corporate services including all aspects of finance, supply-chain management, legal services, risk management, board governance and information security.

Patrick holds a Bachelor of Business Administration and a Chartered Accountant designation.

Patrick believes in giving back to his community having served on several not-for-profit boards as well as participating in the 100 Men Who Care program in Moncton. When he’s not at work, his weekends are spent at his cottage on Grand Lake with his family. He’s also a skier, a golfer and enjoys playing squash.
