Richard Snow, head of IR at Ladbrokes will be stepping up temporarily to the position of interim CFO during the company’s merger with Gala Coral.
Snow served as head of UK corporate finance for Merrill Lynch and as managing director in corporate broking at Goldman Sachs before joining Vodafone as global director for M&A. He was also a non-executive director for its South African subsidiary Vodacom.
He will be replacing the departing Ian Bull. Snow’s expertise will be needed to oversee the concerns of the Competition and Markets Authority.
Should the merger go ahead, Paul Bowtell, who currently serves as chief financial officer at Gala Coral, will take on the same role at the combined company.
