Tuesday February 2,2016 : GVC STRENGTHENS BOARD
Experts in gaming and regulation.
Following the completion of its acquisition of bwin.party and the admission to trading of its shares to the London Stock Exchange Main Market, GVC Holdings has strengthened its board with the appointment of independent non-executive directors Stephen Morana and Peter Isola.
The appointments reflect the company’s commitment to enhanced corporate governance in line with a desire to move up to the Premium Segment of the Main Market in as shorter time as possible.
Stephen Morana currently serves as chief financial officer for Zoopla Property Group Plc but formerly spent ten years with Betfair as chief financial officer and later as interim chief executive officer. He is also a non-executive director of boohoo.com plc, a qualified chartered accountant and a member of the INSEAD alumni.
Gibraltar-domiciled gaming law expert Peter Isola currently holds non-executive directorships at numerous Gibraltar businesses including Gibraltar International Bank Limited, Hercules Fund PCC Limited and Callaghan Insurance Brokers Limited.
He has been a senior partner at Isolas in Gibraltar since 2007 and was initially called to the Bar of England and Wales and the Gibraltar Bar in 1982. He is currently a member of the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple and a Council Member of The Gibraltar Bar Council.
"The GVC team is delighted to welcome Non-Executives of Stephen and Peter's calibre to the GVC Board for the start of what will be an exciting new chapter for the Company,” Kenny Alexander, chief executive officer of GVC Holdings PLC commented. “In these two individuals we have added deeper expertise in online gaming and regulation, two areas which will be central to our continued success as a Company."
