I am excited to have Robeson succeed Lee as CEO. Robeson has an extraordinary mind and the drive required to excel as he takes the helm. Robeson has been a member of the Board since the Gamesys acquisition, and his appointment represents the Board's commitment to the development of the very best talent at Bally's.
In his 14 years with Gamesys, Reeves held various leadership positions, including Chief Operating Officer since 2015 and Director of Gaming Operations. He joined Gamesys in September 2005. The incoming CEO expressed his honor to lead Bally's and excitement for the growth opportunities ahead.
Reeves is well-equipped to lead the company into its next phase, as his extensive experience in the gaming industry has provided him with the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate the ever-evolving landscape. He has a proven track record of success and has been instrumental in the growth and development of Gamesys. With his appointment as CEO of Bally's, the company is poised for even greater success in the future.
Under Fenton's leadership, Bally's successfully integrated Gamesys and established the purpose and values of the integrated company. The CEO transition is an exciting opportunity for the company to continue its growth and success, and the Board of Directors is confident in Reeves' ability to lead the company forward.
The outgoing CEO will leave behind a strong foundation and a well-positioned company, and the Board of Directors wishes him all the best in his next endeavors.
