Entain takes on Ed Davis and Franziska van Almsick to Entain Foundation
Entain has announced the recruitment of Ed Davis, who is the former Gibraltar governor, as well as Franziska van Almsick, a German olympian. The two have been appointed to the company’s trust fund, the Entain Foundation.
Before he was chosen to be the governor of Gibraltar, which he assumed during 2016 until 2020, he had quite an extensive time in the military and even was promoted to Lieutenant General.
“I am delighted to have been asked to become the first chair of the Entain Foundation. This great initiative clearly demonstrates Entain’s commitment to making a positive contribution to wider society by investing in the future of its customers, colleagues and communities. I am excited at the opportunity to help shape this journey.”
Van Almsick is a ten-time Olympic medalist and is the former world champion in swimming. She was appointed in an ambassadorial position in Germany and is now going to promote the efforts of the foundation.
Van Almsick mentioned:
“This is a great opportunity to play a role in supporting the work of the Entain Foundation. I have been impressed with the passion and commitment of Entain’s team in using their position to invest back in to grass roots sport and the wider community.”
Entain has allocated around £100 million through the Foundation over the course of five year. This comes as part of its growth strategy and is done in order to support a large variety of charitable causes that aim to spread awareness on responsible gaming and regulation research.
Newly-appointed CEO of Entain, Jette Nygaard-Andersen, also said:
“We are honoured to welcome Ed and Franziska to the Entain Foundation. The appointment of such high calibre individuals is a mark of our ambitions for the Foundation’s future. Collectively they bring incredible leadership and organisational skills as well as huge experience in the charitable sector and sporting world.”
