Clare Swindell – Camelot

National Lottery operator Camelot UK has confirmed the appointment of Group CFO Clare Swindell as a corporate governance director, joining Chief Executive Nigel Railton as the second company executive to sit on the Camelot Board.

Swindell has served as Camelot’s group financial lead since May 2017, having joined the lottery operator from Tesco owned retail data solutions provider dunnhumby.

Confirming the board appointment, Camelot governance highlights Swindell’s extensive 17-year executive career having led financial planning, key projects and major transformation programmes as CFO of Tesco.com and Group Audit Director of Tesco Plc.

Camelot Chairman, Sir Hugh Robertson commented: “I am delighted to welcome Clare to the Camelot Board. Since joining Camelot just over two years ago, Clare’s wide-ranging operational experience – as well as her extensive knowledge of strategic finance and internal control processes – has added great value to the business.

“This appointment recognises Clare’s seniority and contribution, and while her role and responsibilities as CFO will remain unchanged, she will be taking on additional and important statutory duties and obligations. The rest of the Board and I very much look forward to working with Clare in this enhanced capacity.”
