The CEO of British media and publishing group Future Plc, Byng Thorne will officially resign from Flutter directorship duties on 31 January 2023.

Departing Flutter, Byng Thorne has accepted to serve as a Non-Executive Director of NYSE-listed Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings, with effect from 1 November 2022.
