Playtech Reshuffles Board

Online gaming content supplier Playtech announced several changes to its board of directors, including the partial merger of the audit committee with the existing risk and compliance committee.

The combination will form the new Audit and Risk Committee, which will be chaired by Ian

Penrose, a senior independent director who has been on the Playtech board since September 2018. Penrose brings more than 25 years of leadership experience in the global gaming, sporting and technology industries.

Joining Penrose as ordinary members are non-executive directors Samy Reeb and Linda Marston-Weston. These changes took effect on June 1, with no other Playtech committees being affected by the reorganization.

Additionally, the compliance feature of Playtech’s existing Risk and Compliance Committee will soon be integrated into a new committee, which will be called the Regulatory and Compliance Committee. Reeb will chair this committee, supported by Penrose and Anna Massion as ordinary members, the latter of whom is another non-executive director at Playtech.
