National Lottery Operator Camelot UK has announced Group CFO Clare Swindell’s role as Corporate Governance Director following Chief Executive Nigel Railton as the Camelot Board’s second business director.
Swindell has served as the financial group manager of Camelot since May 2017, having joined the dunnhumby consumer information services company operated by Tesco’s lottery operator.
Confirming the appointment of the board, Camelot Governance highlights Swindell’s lengthy 17-year corporate experience as CFO of Tesco.com and Tesco Plc Group Audit Director, leading financial management, main initiatives and significant change programs.
Camelot Chairman, Sir Hugh Robertson commented: “I am delighted to welcome Clare to the Camelot Board. Since joining Camelot just over two years ago, Clare’s wide-ranging operational experience – as well as her extensive knowledge of strategic finance and internal control processes – has added great value to the business.
“This appointment recognises Clare’s seniority and contribution, and while her role and responsibilities as CFO will remain unchanged, she will be taking on additional and important statutory duties and obligations. The rest of the Board and I very much look forward to working with Clare in this enhanced capacity.”
