Flutter Entertainment has announced the appointment of Salesforce Ireland head Carolan Lennon as a non-executive director. Lennon will assume the position in July, the same month that she begins her tenure as CEO of Salesforce Ireland. Lennon was formerly the chief executive of Eir, a leading Irish telecom company.
Concurrently, Holly Keller Koeppel has been appointed chairwoman of Flutter’s audit committee and David Lazzarato has been appointed as chair of Flutter’s risk and sustainability committee. Her appointment follows the departure of Michael Cawley, who announced in February that he was to step down as a non-executive director at Flutter, which owns Paddy Power and Betfair. Lazzarato replaces Zillah Byng-Thorne, who will continue as a non-executive director.
Commenting on Lennon’s appointment, Gary McGann, Flutter’s group chair, said: “Following an extensive search as part of our on-going board renewal process, I am delighted to welcome Carolan as a non-executive director.
“Carolan has significant experience of regulated consumer facing digital businesses. Carolan’s appointment is in line with our board renewal program having regard to the scale, geographic breadth and growth of the business. We look forward to Carolan joining the Flutter board and contributing to the company’s future.”
