GVC Holdings has strengthened its leadership team after confirming the appointment of David Lloyd-Seed, who will join the company as the new Director of Investor Relations and External Communications.
In the new role, Lloyd-Seed will take responsibility for leading the Group’s strategic external communication with investors, the City and a range of key stakeholders. He will take up his new post in March 2020, ahead of the publication of the Group’s full year results.
Commenting on the appointment, Rob Wood, CFO of GVC Holdings, said: “David brings a huge wealth of experience and expertise to the Group from the City and as a strategic advisor and communicator. His appointment adds further strength and depth to our management team and I am delighted to welcome him on board.”
Prior to joining GVC, Lloyd-Seed held the position of Head of Capital Markets at Powerscourt, GVC’s strategic communications advisors. He brings with him over 15 years of experience in Investor Relationship roles, having also worked at Telefonica UK (O2), Severn Trent and Dixons.
Lloyd-Seed also had an 18-year career in corporate broking, during which time he advised across multiple sectors on IR, market-related activities, fund-raisings, mergers and IPOs. He is a board member of the Investor Relations Society.
Nick Batram, who has been acting as the Group’s investor relations lead in recent months, will return to his full time role as Group Director of Corporate Strategy and Development.
Lloyd-Seed added: “I am delighted to be joining GVC and am looking forward to working with the most dynamic management team in the sector.
“This is a hugely exciting time for GVC as it consolidates its position as a global industry leader, continues to expand into newly regulating markets, and leads the industry in responsible gambling.”
