Directorate Change


Further to the announcement of 28 January 2021, GBG is pleased to confirm that David Ward has today formally taken up his Board position as CFO. David replaces Dave Wilson who, as part of the CFO succession plan, has now stepped down from the Board.


David Rasche, Chairman of GBG, said:

"Dave has been an invaluable member of the GBG team during a period of significant change for the Group, both in his careful management of our financial position and his valued insight into our growth strategy. On behalf of the Board I would like to thank Dave for his significant contribution over the past 12 years and we wish him all the very best for the future. 


I would also like to welcome David Ward to the Board.  David brings a wealth of valuable experience, is a great fit for the business and the Board very much look forward to working with him as we continue to grow GBG."


Dave Wilson, outgoing CFO & COO of GBG, said:

"It has been a privilege to work with past and present team members, who are the essence of such a great business. My 12 years at GBG has been fun and rewarding, which has given me many proud moments. It is the right time for me to move to non-executive roles and I thank the Board, our team, advisors and the investment community for their support over the years."


David Ward, incoming CFO added:

"I am delighted to be joining GBG at such an exciting time. I am really looking forward to working with Chris, the Board and the whole team to ensure the continued success of GBG."
