With the addition of Lara Falzon as Group Chief Financial Officer, multinational sports betting and casino company SKS365 has bolstered its international and Italian growth plans.
The company, which was established in Austria and is now based in Italy under the Planetwin365 name, is currently experiencing “intense growth” on both a regional and international level.
Alexander Martin, CEO of SKS365 said: “I am very pleased to welcome Lara to our talented executive team at SKS365 as CFO. Lara brings a wealth of experience in M&A activity and leading financial operations across international markets combined with in-depth industry experience from working at various gaming companies.
“Finance is a key function at SKS365 supporting actively our growth and profitability targets and I am delighted to have Lara leading our excellent finance team.”
Prior to joining SKS365, Falzon worked with a number of global betting operators in strategic financial leadership roles, most recently as the operating CFO at NetEnt, where she supervised the company’s acquisition by Evolution Gaming.
Falzon also has CFO background at slot developer Red Tiger, which was acquired by her eventual employer NetEnt during that period.
Falzon is a highly educated executive who holds a Bachelor in Commerce from the University of Malta and is a fellow member of the Association of Chartered Accountants, in addition to her extensive experience.
Drive of growth and transformation plans
Commenting on her new position, Falzon stated: “SKS365 is among one of the leaders of the Italian betting and gaming industry and I am thrilled to contribute with my expertise to further drive the company’s growth and transformation plans.
“SKS365 operates in a very complex and challenging market both in terms of regulation and financial sustainability. I am delighted to join the company at this time and I am looking forward to working with the team to execute on the company’s priorities, accelerate growth and enhance value for shareholders and all stakeholders.”
Last year, Massimiliano Mura was named to SKS365’s board of directors as Group Director of Legal and Compliance Divisions, adding deep expertise with Italian gaming laws to the company’s corporate strategy.
