Sky Betting & Gaming CEO joins Senet Group board
Richard Flint, chief executive of Sky Betting & Gaming, has been appointed to the board of UK gambling watchdog the Senet Group.
Flint’s addition to the board comes after Sky Betting & Gaming became the first online-only operator to join the organisation in February of this year.
In addition, the Senet Group has appointed Stephen Thornton as an independent director.
Thornton joins the organisation having held various senior roles within the UK health sector.
