Bacta has made a key appointment to its SR team with the appointment of Russell Edge to the role of Membership, Social Responsibility and Compliance Manager.


A ‘timely’ arrival, Edge will maintain the association’s newly launched BactaPortal, as well as overseeing and developing the body’s self-exclusion system. He will also act as secretary to the Bacta SR committee and organise the annual SR Exchange.

On Compliance, Edge will oversee all aspects, including dispute resolution, codes of practice, delivery of compliance training and the overseeing of crime prevention services.

“This is a new and vital appointment for Bacta,” says CEO John White. “Russell will be a key contact for supporting member benefits, delivering member systems and ensuring that schemes, such as ADIPS are delivered efficiently.”

Edge joins from ITC Compliance, where he was Regional Account Manager. Prior to that, he worked for telecoms business BDM and automotive giant Ford.

Speaking about his new duties, Edge said: “I am looking forward to taking up my new role at Bacta, I have enjoyed a happy and successful career to date with a number of blue-chip companies and it will be a great opportunity to work in a smaller organisation and effect some real change. I tend to thrive in a pressurised and challenging working environment, enabling me to pioneer new and better ways of doing things and I believe this job will give me that opportunity.”
