Sportech Extends Leadership With Ben Warn’s Appointment

Global racing and wagering services provider Sportech Plc has extended its leadership following announcement of Ben Warn’s appointment as Non-Executive Director.

With 20 years of industry experience as ceo, Warn has led product and marketing campaigns for a range of tier-1 betting firms such as Sky Bet, Rank Group and UKbetting Plc.

Warn previously served as a Non-Executive Adviser to fast-growing betting publisher CheckdMedia before joining Sportech.

Warn will advise Sportech governance and executive leadership teams on strategic approaches and product creation as the LSE-listed company accelerates its business transformation plan and prioritises prospects for growth in the US.

A busy 2019 saw Sportech, under the direction of new Group CEO Richard McGuire and Chairman Giles Vardey, make major changes to its executive leadership team.

Confirming the appointment with Warn, Vardey said: “Given the many challenges all businesses in our sector are facing, we are pleased to have Ben Warn joining our board with his broad gambling experience and his online product development and technology expertise.”

Last week, Sportech released its full-year 2019 results, outlining a return to’ topline metric growth’ following group losses due to US-related impairment charges of £ 8 million.
