Flutter appoints Salesforce Ireland chief Carolan Lennon to board

| By Richard Mulligan
Flutter Entertainment has announced the appointment of Salesforce Ireland chief Carolan Lennon as a non-executive director as part of a boardroom reshuffle.

Lennon will assume her position in July, the same month that she takes up the post of country leader of Salesforce Ireland. Lennon was formerly the chief executive of Eir, a leading Irish telecoms provider.

Meanwhile, Holly Keller Koeppel has been appointed as chair of Flutter’s Audit Committee and David Lazzarato has been appointed as chair of Flutter’s Risk and Sustainability Committee.

Keller Koeppel’s appointment comes after the departure of Michael Cawley, who announced in February that he was to step down as a non-executive director at the owner of Paddy Power and Betfair. Lazzarato replaces Zillah Byng-Thorne, who will continue as a non-executive director.

Commenting on Lennon’s appointment, Gary McGann, Flutter’s group chair, said: “Following an extensive search as part of our on-going board renewal process, I am delighted to welcome Carolan as a non-executive director.

“Carolan has significant experience of regulated consumer facing digital businesses. Carolan’s appointment is in line with our board renewal programme having regard to the scale, geographic breadth and growth of the business. We look forward to Carolan joining the Flutter board and contributing to the company’s future.”
