Aristocrat Leisure has appointed Sally Denby as its new Chief Financial Officer, effective immediately and subject to the receipt of necessary regulatory pre-approvals.
Denby has served as the company’s Deputy Chief Financial Officer since being promoted to the role earlier this year in February.
Before becoming Deputy CFO, she had worked in senior finance leadership roles within Aristocrat for the past seven years.
“I am thrilled to appoint Sally Denby as Chief Financial Officer of Aristocrat and welcome her to our executive leadership team,” commented Trevor Croker, CEO and Managing Director of Aristocrat.
“Over her successful career at Aristocrat, Sally has proven to be an outstanding enterprise leader and a trusted finance partner. Sally’s cultural impact, deep engagement with our operating businesses, and understanding of our obligations as an ASX-listed company further add to her credentials.”
Before joining Aristocrat, Denby led the financial operations of Nine MSN and GE’s Australian and European business units.
Croker added: “In particular, as Deputy Chief Financial Officer, Sally has worked effectively with myself and our leaders in supporting the execution of our growth strategy and ensuring seamless continuity post the departure of our previous CFO in April.
“A comprehensive global search identified Sally as the best candidate to step into the role, at this exciting time in Aristocrat’s growth journey. I congratulate Sally on her appointment and look forward to her ongoing contribution to Aristocrat.”
Last month, Aristocrat rebranded its online real money gaming division to Anaxi to support its “build and buy” growth strategy.
