Nektan, a leading B2B mobile gaming company, has announced that David Gosen has stepped down from his post as company CEO.
Gosen has taken this step to allow himself the opportunity to focus on new oportunities. The resignation comes into effect from the end of January, and it has already been confirmed that he will be temporarily replaced by Gary Shaw, the executive chairman for an interim period.
Whilst the search is carried out, Shaw will retain the CEO post until a permanent replacement is found. In an interview with iGaming business Shaw was quoted as saying:
“We would like to thank David for the progress the business has made in the last 12 months, and its continuing growth is testament to the solid building blocks the company established during his tenure,” Shaw said.
As part of the senior management reshuffle, Nektan has appointed non-executive director Jim Wilkinson as non-executive chairman.
Wilkinson currently serves as chief financial officer at technology firm Oxford Sciences Innovation and previously held the same role with Sportingbet between 2008 and 2013.
“I am delighted that Jim Wilkinson has agreed to accept the role of non-executive chairman,” Shaw said.
“He is a highly valued member of the board and we look forward to continuing to work with him in his new role as we take the company into the next phase of its development and continue to deliver further strong growth.”
This follows David Sparks stepping down from his role as CFO last month.
