Entain announces double board appointment as senior director Morana leaves

Entain has announced a double appointment to its board of directors while Stephen Morana is to step down from the operator’s board.

Stella David is to become a senior independent director after being appointed to the Remuneration, ESG and Nomination Committees, from 4 March.

Vicky Jarman will also join the Ladbrokes and Coral operator’s board on the same date after being appointed an independent non-executive director and will join the Audit and Remuneration Committees.

Meanwhile, Morana is to leave his role as senior independent director on 4 March to concentrate on his current position as chief financial officer at Cazoo, a role he’s held since July last year.

David joins the operator’s board, formerly known as GVC Holdings, alongside her non-executive director roles at Domino’s Pizza Group, Bacardi, HomeServe and Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings.

She was previously CEO at William Grant & Sons after spending more than 15 years with Bacardi, which included five years as its global chief marketing officer.

Jarman is a chartered accountant who qualified at KPMG before spending more than 10 years with Lazard and Co and is currently a non-executive director at Signature Aviation and Great Portland Estates.

Entain chairman Barry Gibson said: “I am delighted to welcome Stella and Vicky to the board of Entain. Between them they offer a hugely additive variety of skills, perspectives and experiences gleaned from many different roles and industries. We now have a truly exceptional board that will help Entain realise its clear and ambitious strategy for sustainability, growth and innovation.”

The board reshuffle comes a month after Jette Nygaard-Anderson was appointed Entain’s new CEO after Shay Segev stepped down to become co-CEO of DAZN.
