GAMSTOP adds Dr Jo Watts and Kevin Beerling to board of directors

National online self-exclusion initiative, GAMSTOP, has committed to broadening its governance and providing a trusted environment for all stakeholders through two new appointments to its board of Non-Executive Directors.

The two new members, Dr Jo Watts and Kevin Beerling, follow the selection of the initiative’s Independent Chair, Jenny Watson CBE in September.

Watson commented on the new appointments: “We are delighted that these two exceptional leaders in their fields have agreed to lend their expertise to this important project. I am very much looking forward to working with them in the future.”

Dr Watts joins the board after 15 years experience in customer analytics and risk management. While overseeing the operations of data science company Effini as well as occupying a place on the Board of The Data Lab, she is heavily involved in initiatives promoting Women in Technology.

Beerling, meanwhile, has a wealth of experience in legal services, risk management, HR and ICT. With a strong financial background, and upwards of 20 years Board level experience, he has previously held positions such as Group Finance Director of the Prospects Group.

Both new members are hoped to bring fresh insight and a wealth pf experience which will facilitate the initiatives growth further.
