Playtech said that Chief Financial Officer Andrew Smith is stepping down for personal reasons and will be replaced by Chris McGinnis.
Smith will leave his position on Nov. 28th.
McGinnis is currently deputy chief financial officer and director of investor relations and has been with the company since 2017.
Prior to joining Playtech he was head of corporate strategy at software company, Temenos.
“On behalf of the board, I would like to thank Andy for the contribution he has made to Playtech over the past seven years, and in particular since taking over as CFO in 2017,” Playtech Chairman Brian Mattingley said.
“Andy has played a crucial role at the company, helping to steer the business through the pandemic including delivering a record half year performance in H1 2022, and leading the recent successful refinancing of Playtech’s external debt in light of the upcoming bond maturity. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
“I am delighted that Chris will be joining the board as CFO. In addition to his deep knowledge of Playtech and the sector, he brings a strong set of financial and strategic skills that will be invaluable as the company looks to deliver further growth. I am very much looking forward to continuing working with him as we execute against our strategy in the coming years.”
