Aristocrat sets 15 April departure date for CFO Cameron-Doe

| By Robert Fletcher
Aristocrat Leisure has announced that Julie Cameron-Doe will step down from her role as chief financial officer on 15 April in order to take up a new position with Wynn Resorts.

Wynn in December announced Cameron-Doe as its new chief financial officer to succeed Craig Billings, who was appointed as Wynn’s new chief executive in the previous month.

At the time, Wynn said Cameron-Doe would join the business with effect from the second quarter of 2022 after completing her notice period with Aristocrat, where she has been CFO since January 2018.

Aristocrat has now confirmed that Cameron-Doe’s last day with the business will be 15 April, after which she will be replaced in the interim by deputy chief financial officer Sally Denby.

Denby worked in senior finance roles at Aristocrat for more than seven years, including four years as its group general manager of finance

Aristocrat added that a global search to appoint a permanent replacement for Cameron-Doe is “well progressed”.

“Julie has been an exceptional partner to me and the leadership group,” Aristocrat’s chief executive and managing director,” Trevor Croker said. “I am thankful for Julie’s dedicated service to Aristocrat over the past eight years and wish her all the best for the future.”

Cameron-Doe’s departure exit after Aristocrat earlier this year failed in an effort to acquire Playtech.

Playtech’s board backed an offer for Aristocrat to acquire the business for £2.7bn (€3.2bn/$3.7bn) in October, subject to shareholder approval. 

However Playtech in February revealed that proxy votes received to date suggested the acquisition would fall short of the 75% of votes required for Aristocrat’s bid to proceed. Playtech has since received an approach from TTB Partners over a possible takeover.
