FTSE250 technology group Playtech Plc has confirmed that industry governance veteran Susan Ball will join its Board of Directors as a Non-Executive Advisor, from 1 August 2018.

A former senior partner at Ernest & Young and ex-CFO of Unibet Plc, Ball is an expert in financial planning and executing growth strategies for digital enterprises/projects.

Outside the gambling sector, Ball is currently Non-Executive Director of UK leisure and fitness operator Bannatyne Group plc, and further mentors a number of online start-up businesses.

Following her appointment to the Board on 1 August, Ball will be a member of the Audit, Risk, Remuneration and Nominations committees.

Welcoming Ball to Playtech PLc governance, Alan Jackson Group Chairman of Playtech plc, said:

“The Board is delighted to welcome Susan to Playtech. Susan’s appointment as an independent Non-Executive Director represents another step forward in the evolution of Playtech’s Board and the continued progress of the Company. Susan brings a wealth of experience of the global gambling market with a focus on digital growth strategies which will be of particular benefit to Playtech and the continued execution of its strategic goals.’
