Playtech Reshuffles Board

Online gaming content provider Playtech has announced a number of changes to its board of directors, including new non-executive director and senior independent director appointments and committee changes.

The company has appointed Linda Marston-Weston to its board as a non-executive director, replacing Claire Milne, effective October 1. Marston-Weston has more than 30 years of experience in working with global businesses in finance, strategy, tax, culture and leadership positions. She was also head of tax at EY Midlands, where she also held the role of people partner and led the company’s people strategy.

Milne, who is stepping down September 30, was previously the interim chairman of Playtech before Brian Mattingly stepped into the role on a permanent basis.

“I am delighted to welcome Linda to the board,” said Mattingly. “In addition to her significant work in the areas of people, diversity and inclusion, Linda will bring a huge amount of experience, strategic insight, and technical expertise to Playtech having spent more than three decades advising businesses at board level.”

Ian Penrose will step into the role of senior independent director, replacing John Jackson, effective September 30. He will step down from the nomination committee to take on his new role.

“On behalf of the board, I’d like to express our thanks and appreciation to John and Claire for their contribution to Playtech’s development over the last five years which has been central in laying the foundations for the next phase ahead,” Mattingly said.

John Krumins will become a member of, and the chair of, Playtech’s audit committee. He will also join the nominations committee along with Anna Massion. Massion will chair the risk committee, which Marston-Weston will also join.
