Nektan chief executive to stand down
Nektan has announced that David Gosen has stepped down as its chief executive in order to pursue new opportunities.
Gosen, whose resignation comes into effect from the end of this month, will be replaced by executive chairman Gary Shaw on an interim basis.
Shaw will remain in the role whilst the Nektan board searches for a permanent replacement.
“We would like to thank David for the progress the business has made in the last 12 months, and its continuing growth is testament to the solid building blocks the company established during his tenure,” Shaw said.
As part of the senior management reshuffle, Nektan has appointed non-executive director Jim Wilkinson as non-executive chairman.
Wilkinson currently serves as chief financial officer at technology firm Oxford Sciences Innovation and previously held the same role with Sportingbet between 2008 and 2013.
“I am delighted that Jim Wilkinson has agreed to accept the role of non-executive chairman,” Shaw said.
“He is a highly valued member of the board and we look forward to continuing to work with him in his new role as we take the company into the next phase of its development and continue to deliver further strong growth.”
Confirmation of the reshuffle comes after Nektan last month also announced that David Sparks was to step down from his role as chief financial officer at the firm.
