Parimatch introduces supervisory board, announces Liashko and Syrotian as co-CEOs

| By Marese O'Hagan
Betting and technology brand Parimatch has announced the creation of its new supervisory board, to lead its expansion, with CEO Sergey Portnov to leave his post to become chair of this board.

Board appointees include Katerina Belorusskaya – who has been with the company since 2011 – as a stakeholder, and Marek Šmrha as a non-executive board consultant. Sergey Portnov will step down as CEO and serve as chairman of the board.

Maksym Liashko and Roman Syrotian have been appointed as co-CEOs in addition to roles on the supervisory board. The two will divide operating responsibilities in the position, where Liashko will take on finance, legal and communication roles while Syrotian will focus on IT, product and marketing.

“For Roman and me, a dual CEO structure is a logical move and consolidation of the company’s growth directions,” said Liashko.

“We know our areas well, and we will do everything to implement the company’s plans to enter the next level of development.”

“Being already in excellent shape today, Parimatch has ambitions of achieving top positions on the markets all over the world,” added Syrotian.

“I hope to contribute to this goal by ensuring that we provide our customers with the highest quality entertainment and services.”

This month Parimatch announced a promotional partnership with Ukrainian AI app Reface with the Parimatch x Reface social media challenge.

In March Parimatch received Ukraine’s first ever sports betting license after Ukraine’s gambling act came into law in August 2020.
