Playtech Shakes Up Risk and Compliance and Audit Committees

Global iGaming supplier Playtech has embarked on a significant restructuring of its board committees, which will see its risk and compliance group and audit committee partly merge.

Playtech merges its risk and compliance committee and audit committee to create two new panels.

The partial integration of the two committees will lead to the creation of a new audit and risk committee. Ian Penrose, a seasoned senior independent non-executive director who has been a member of Playtech's board since 2018, will chair the committee.

Linda Marston-Weston and Samy Reeb, both non-executive directors, will join Ian Penrose as ordinary members of the committee.

As part of the restructuring, the compliance functions of the existing risk and compliance committee will be spun off into a separate entity to be known as the regulatory and compliance committee.

Sammy Reeb will chair the committee, while Penrose and Anna Massion, another non-executive director, will serve on the board as members.

Playtech has announced that the new changes will take effect on June 1, and the reorganization will not affect other committees.
