(UK).- Online gaming operator bwin.party has appointed Liz Catchpole and Barry Gibson as independent non-executive directors with effect from March 1. Gibson, who currently serves as chairman of HomeServe and Harding Retail Group, does have a history in the gambling sector, having spent time as the senior independent director and chairman of the remuneration committee at William Hill and Playtech, as well as HomeServe and National Express Group.Catchpole is a chartered certified accountant with executive experience primarily across the insurance, business services and property sectors.

T

he appointments come after the bwin.party board in May 2014 began a search to find candidates to succeed Rod Perry, chairman of the remuneration committee and senior independent director, as well as Helmut Kern, chairman of the audit and risk committee.
Perry and Helmut will retire after bwin.party’s Annual General Meeting this year.

Philip Yea, chairman of bwin.party, said: “I am very pleased to welcome Liz and Barry to bwin .party.

“Their backgrounds will complement the portfolio of skills and experience of the other directors, while also filling the gaps left by Rod and Helmut when they retire later this year.”

Following a formal induction and handover, Gibson will take the role of chairman of the remuneration committee and senior independent director, with Catchpole being appointed as chairman of the audit and risk committee.

Bwin.party also noted that it is continuing a search for an independent non-executive director with knowledge and expertise in information technology, market trends and technology delivery in consumer-facing digital businesses.

A number of candidates have been interviewed and short-listed for this position, with the operator hoping to make an appointment in due course.
