Tabcorp CEO Rytenskild resigns over “offensive” language

Adam Rytenskild, Tabcorp Holdings CEO, resigned amid reports of derogatory language at work, the company announced.

Joining Tabcorp in 2000, Rytenskild has been the CEO since May 2022. In accordance with Australian legislation, he will only receive termination compensation and renounce any unvested short- and long-term bonus rewards.

The accusations against Rytenskild, according to a statement from Tabcorp’s board, were at odds with his leadership style and the company’s core principles. After twenty-two years with the firm, Rytenskild agreed to quit, expressing sorrow even though he couldn’t remember making the claimed remarks. Bruce Akhurst, the chairman of Tabcorp, will take on further responsibilities as executive chairman in the wake of Rytenskild’s retirement while a search is underway for a new chief executive officer. Maritana Partners, an executive search firm, has been chosen to take the lead on the project.

The H1 figures for Tabcorp revealed a sharp drop in sales and a significant net loss. The group’s revenue fell 5.1 percent, with wagering and media income declining 4.2 percent. Sales from gaming services decreased by 14.5 percent , mostly as a result of the sales of Max Performance Solutions and eBet. A 852m dollars impairment charge was the main reason for the company’s reported 641.7m net loss as opposed to 53.2m dollars net profit in the prior year. But once Tabcorp and the Australian Taxation Office worked out a tax disagreement, Tabcorp received eighty three million dollars tax refund.

After agreeing to pay the government more than a billion dollars at this point, Tabcorp was also granted the exclusive license to wager and gamble in Victoria for the next twenty years.
