general counsel and company secretary
Jo Wong has responsibility over the legal, company secretarial, regulatory affairs and anti-money laundering functions at SkyCity, New Zealand’s largest tourism, leisure, and entertainment company. She is also designated as SkyCity’s chief privacy officer.
Wong leads a small, but highly capable, team of professionals, to deal with a huge number of day-to-day tasks covering SkyCity’s legal functions and managing broad engagements with the dual-listed company’s multiple stakeholders. Aside from that, she also has had a very challenging 12 months due to the significant and complex legal issues arising from COVID-19 and the impacts on SkyCity’s operations, the significant and complex legal and insurance issues arising from the October 2019 fire at the NZ International Convention Centre, launch of SkyCity’s offshore online casino, and SkyCity’s $230-million equity raising.
