Nektan plc (AIM: NKTN), the fast growing, award-winning international gaming technology platform and services provider, announces that Lucy Buckley, the Company's Chief Executive Officer, has resigned with immediate effect. Lucy will remain available to the Board for a period of time to enable a smooth transition to a new leadership structure, for which the Board has commenced a review. The Group expects to make a further announcement in due course. Gary Shaw, Founder and Executive Director of Nektan, has assumed the role of Interim CEO, in addition to his existing responsibilities for international expansion.
"As part of the recent restructuring of the business, now is the right moment for me to step away from the role of CEO. The business has a solid foundation of proprietary technology and a fast-growing B2B business that will help it capitalise on the many global opportunities ahead" said Lucy Buckley.
Gary Shaw, Founder and Executive Director of Nektan, commented: "On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Lucy for her stewardship during a period of industry change and challenges in the UK market. The Company remains confident that its sales pipeline has the scope to drive significant revenue growth in both the B2C and B2B divisions."
