Online gambling software provider GTechG2's corporate restructuring has resulted in the resignation after an almost uninterrupted run of 18 years’ service of William Scott, the group's vice president for interactive business development and strategy.
Scott was part of the team that organised the acquisition of the various internet gaming businesses by GTech, and prior to his role in interactive business development and strategy he was VP responsible for corporate development, involved in the development of the group’s Internet gaming strategy and the identification and execution of acquisitions such as Finsoft, Boss Media and St Minver.
Other than a 3 year break in the middle of his GTech career, when he was chief financial officer of the London listed coffee retailer Coffee Republic plc, Scott has been with GTech Corporation since 1995. Prior to this he was with the office automation company, Gestetner plc working directly for the chairman.
A South African by birth and education, Scott holds a Bachelor of Commerce (Honours) degree from the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg. He is also a member of the Chartered Accountants of South Africa, qualifying whilst working for Arthur Andersen in Johannesburg and London.
