Boom Entertainment has bolstered its c-level leadership team after it confirmed the appointment of Zack Messer as its new Chief Financial Officer.
Formerly of Scientific Games, Pinnacle Entertainment and IGT, Messer will be charged with elevating the financial performance of the firm as it seeks to exploit new opportunities in the US online gambling and daily fantasy sports markets.
“The growth opportunities at Boom are unprecedented and it’s the right time to bring in a seasoned financial strategist,” commented Stephen Murphy, Co-Founder and CEO of Boom Entertainment.
“Zack fits the CFO role perfectly, having spent 14 years in gaming and holding a variety of strategic finance roles at IGT, Pinnacle Entertainment and most recently Scientific Games as its head of finance for Gaming Operations.
“He has also been involved in various M&A deals, ranging from tuck-ins to multi-billion dollar acquisitions, and that experience will be invaluable as well.”
Recently, Boom raised $15m in Series A funding as part of its growth ambitions to ‘redefine gaming in North America by launching casino and sports betting product divisions in 2022’.
“It’s clear that Steve has created a strong culture at Boom with a compelling growth trajectory,” added Messer.
“I’ve been privileged to work at several industry leaders ranging from suppliers to operators, land-based to online, real-wager to social. I look forward to adding my expertise to the talented group of team members at Boom as we take on the next phase of growth for the company.”
