FSB has appointed experienced industry executive Susan Ball to its board as it continues to strengthen its senior team and expand its presence across emerging and existing markets.
FSB’s new Non-Executive Director brings many years of board-level gaming and sports betting industry experience to the company with roles at Playtech, Kambi, Kindred and Praesepe respectively. Ball most recently spent time on Playtech’s board chairing its audit committee and as a member of its risk and compliance, remuneration and nominations committees.
David McDowell, CEO at FSB, explained the rationale behind the appoitnment: “Susan is a first-class addition to the company’s executive board. Her vast industry expertise and experience will play a vital role in taking the company to its next level of growth. We’re thrilled she has chosen to join us.”
Ball previously served for four years on the board of sports betting technology supplier Kambi, was Chief Financial Officer of Stockholm-listed operator Unibet (now Kindred Group) between 2002 and 2007 and was finance chief for gambling business Praesepe.
Ball will sit on FSB’s board in an advisory capacity and work closely with CEO Dave McDowell and his senior management team to guide the business during a period of planned rapid growth and expansion across new and established markets including Africa, Latin America and the US.
Susan Ball, Non-Executive Director, FSB, commented: “I’m delighted to join FSB Technology. It is a fantastic opportunity to work alongside such an experienced, driven and motivated senior management team who are passionate about delivering FSB’s high performance, advanced technology and rapidly growing the business across a wide range of exciting new markets.”
Her appointment comes hot on the heels of several other senior FSB recruits in 2020 including new Chief Financial Officer Andrew Bowen (ACA) and new Business Development Director Rob Wheeler, who will lead the company’s sales team as it extends its scope and influence across the industry following significant capital investment from Clairvest Group in mid-2019.
