Secil Tabli Watson and Paul Finch have been appointed to the board, with the intention to serve on the board’s Audit Committee, Nominating and Governance Committee and Compensation Committee. Their tenures will begin on 1 February 2022.
Everi’s lead independent director of the board Ronald Congemi has communicated his decision to retire on 18 May 2022 and current board member Atul Bali has been selected as his replacement.
The new appointments follow on from Randy Taylor being promoted to company CEO in December in anticipation of current incumbent Michael Rumbolz assuming the role of chairman.
Rumbolz said: “We are delighted to welcome Secil and Paul to Everi. Their achievements and distinguished experience make them ideal additions to the board of directors.
“Secil’s global and digital experience as former head of digital solutions at Wells Fargo and Paul’s successful leadership of Early Warning Services and its collaborative launching of the banking industry’s first real-time payments network Zelle bring to the board a wealth of business and financial industry knowledge.
“We look forward to benefiting from their insights and counsel as we focus on executing our growth strategies that will propel Everi on its path of building value for our stakeholders. At the same time, we want to thank Ron for his distinguished service to our board. Everi will miss his insight and contributions.”
