Flutter Entertainment reveals new board appointments
Flutter Entertainment Plc has recently unveiled the numerous appointments that were made on its board that is in charge of the FTSE100 gambling group.
Two people on the board have already confirmed their intention to retire soon, and they are Divyesh Gadhia, the current Deputy-Chairman, as well as Peter Rigby, Non-Executive Director. The two will be retiring after the company’s yearly meeting that is set to take place on the 29th of April.
The company has already managed to appoint the people to replace the two retirees, after it announced that Holly Koeppel and Nancy Dubuc will be joining the firm as non-executive directors, starting from April.
The latter, Nancy Dubuc, is currently the CEO of Vice Media, which is an entertainment and news publisher that targets adolescents and the younger generations. Moreover, Flutter Entertainment declared that Holly Koeppel, an expert in corporate financing, will be joining as a strategic advisor. Koeppel is a veteran in corporate governance and currently acts as an advisor for US blue chip firms British American Tobacco Arch Resources Inc and AES Corporation.
Gary McGann, chairman of the company, said:
Following an international search as part of our on-going Board renewal process, I am delighted to welcome Nancy and Holly to the Board. Nancy brings a wealth of experience in the media and entertainment sectors to Flutter. Holly has extensive experience of regulated consumer-facing businesses in the US and international markets. We look forward to Nancy’s and Holly’s involvement which will add enormously to the diversity of thought and perspective on the Flutter Board.
McGann also went on to thank Gadhia for his ‘invaluable contribution’ when it comes to aiding the company in attaining its merger with The Stars Group Inc, ‘ensuring that shareholders were appropriately represented and rewarded’.
