Limor Ganot, the new independent non-executive director of 888 Holdings, will begin her duties in office from August 1.
She has been working until now as managing partner of Gefen Capital. This US-Israeli equity fund specializes in investments in disruptive technology startups.
Likewise, she is a member of the global payments advisory council of Diners Club International. Before taking up this position, she was co-executive director of the Israeli conglomerate Alon Blue Square.
“I am delighted to welcome Limor to the 888 board,” said Brian Mattingley, chairman of the company’s board of operators.
He indicated that:
“Her participation as a leader in a wide range of businesses, coupled with your understanding of disruptive technologies, will be of great benefit to 888 as we continue to grow and develop as a global leader in online gaming.”
In June, the operator reported that despite the difficulties created by the coronavirus pandemic, it expects to increase revenues and profits this year.
Although it acknowledged that in the second half of the year the economic effects of the pandemic could hit the company’s income, it noted the good performance of online poker along with a strong recovery in sports betting, they have managed to mitigate the migration of users to the eGaming game.
