Acroud CFO Attard departs

| By Robert Fletcher
Online gambling affiliate business Acroud has announced that Roderick Attard has resigned from his role as chief financial officer.

Attard took up the position with Acroud in November of last year after initially joining the business as its head of finance in July 2020.

However, Acroud said Attard will step down from the role in order to pursue another career opportunity. He will remain with the business until early March 2023 to ensure a smooth transition of responsibilities.

“On behalf of everyone at Acroud, I thank Roderick for his work during his tenure as CFO,” Acroud’s chief executive Robert Andersson said. “He leaves behind a strong finance team that is well-positioned to continue supporting the company moving forward.

“We wish Roderick success in his future endeavours.”

Prior to joining the group, Attard spent more than two and a half years with Highlight Media Group, first as financial controller and later operational CFO.

He also worked in several roles for KPMG Malta for over seven years, including as audit manager, while he spent time as assistant manager for KPMG Channel Islands. 

Acroud said it expects to announce the appointment of a new CFO in the near future.

Acroud acquisitions

Acroud made a number of acquisitions while Attard was CFO.

This included a £5.1m ($5.71m/ €5.89m) acquisition of an affiliate and media business, later revealed to be the paid media assets of Catena Media.

During 2021, the affiliate group acquired Power Media Group, which allowed it to offer software-as-a-service (SaaS), as well as affiliate business TheGamblingCabin.
