Crown director Packer connection severed

And just like that, the spectre of James Packer has been banished from the Crown boardroom… or not.

Crown’s just announced that Packer’s private company, Consolidated Press Holdings, has terminated a consultancy agreement with one of Crown’s directors, John Poynton – something CPH said it was going to do earlier in the day.

Two directors nominated by CPH, Guy Jalland and Michael Johnston, have also resigned from the Crown board today.

“Following the resignation of Guy Jalland and Michael Johnston as directors of Crown earlier today and the termination of the consultancy arrangement between CPH and John Poynton, CPH is no longer separately represented on the Crown board,” Crown said in a statement to the ASX this afternoon.

This is true, but investors may find it difficult to forget that Poynton came to be on the board in 2018 after being “nominated as a director by Consolidated Press Holdings Pty Limited to fill the vacancy created by Mr James Packer’s resignation from the Crown board” as Crown told the ASX at the time.

  • An earlier version of this post heading said Poynton had resigned. That is not the case.
