- Playtech announced the appointments of Anna Massion and John Krumins to its board as independent non-executive directors, with immediate effect.

The company said the appointments are the result of an extensive process whereby the chairman and board engaged professional search consultants to identify high quality individuals with the requisite skillset.

In order to continue the development of the board the brief was to identify independent candidates that would offer complementary leadership and experience in high growth digital, data-led industries, corporate finance and fiscal management, expertise and connections in regulation and a global business network.

As part of its engagement with shareholders regarding the appointment of new directors, Playtech consulted with SpringOwl Asset Management, which has fully endorsed both candidates.

The company worked with institutional shareholders including SpringOwl to identify candidates that would strengthen the corporate governance profile of the group and deliver the oversight and strategic counsel required for a global organisation such as Playtech.
