Ladbrokes Australia has announced that it has appointed Jason Scott as interim chief executive and Greg Sedgwick as its non-executive director.
The management moves are effective immediately and come ahead of chief executive Dean Shannon stepping down at the end of February.
Ladbrokes chief executive, Jim Mullen, said: “The Australian business continues to go from strength to strength and has delivered impressive growth since we brought it in 2013.
“We felt it was important that we preserved the entrepreneurial spirit within the team and in appointing Jason we have done just that. Jason has sports betting in his DNA and understands the market and more importantly, the Australian business better than anybody.
“His task is simple, keep the momentum in the business and keep the brand as fresh and as customer focused as it always has been.
“Greg is an established businessman and will be a great addition to the Australian team as a non-executive director and will give the local team support and guidance in maintaining its entrepreneurial spirit as well as introducing a level of necessary governance to the business as it grows in importance as part of the Ladbrokes Coral Group.”
