GVC appoints new board members

The gaming giant has appointed David Satz and Robert Hoskin to new positions.

UK.- GVC Holdings has named David Satz as an independent non-executive director and has promoted Robert Hoskin to the role of chief governance officer. Hoskin has also been given a seat on the board.

Satz served as senior vice president of government relations and development for Caesars Entertainment from 2002 to 2019.

Before that, he spent 16 years focusing on the gambling industry for the US law firm Saiber Schlesinger Satz Goldstein.

GVC chairman Barry Gibson said: “David has unrivalled regulatory and legislative expertise in the all-important US gaming market. 

“His knowledge and insight will be hugely additive in helping us to achieve our ambition of being the leading operator in the US through BetMGM, our fast-growing joint venture with MGM Resorts.”

Hoskin has been at GVC since 2005 and is currently group director of legal, regulatory and secretariat. He previously worked at Aberdeen Asset Management.

Gibson said: “Robert has made an outstanding contribution to GVC in his 15 years at the Group, and his promotion is richly deserved.

“The fact that regulation, legal and governance are now represented at board level will give us even greater oversight of these critically important areas, all of which are central to our long-term growth plans.”

Satz takes up his new role with immediate effect, while Hoskin will take up the new position from January 1.

GVC recently announced its return to the Portuguese market with a new acquisition.
