Playtech (LSE: PTEC) has undergone a new change to its board, culminating in the appointment of Non-Executive Director John Jackson as the newest Chairman of its Remuneration Committee, who steps into the role with immediate effect, according to a recent regulatory filing by the London Stock Exchange (LSE).
With the elevation Mr. Jackson will effectively serve as the replacement for Non-Executive Director Paul Hewitt. Mr. Hewitt stepped into the role this past August, and has since chaired the board’s Risk and Compliance Committee and Remuneration Committee, while also sitting on the Audit Committee and Nominations Committee.
