Inspired Entertainment, one of the world’s most prominent business-to-business iGaming providers, has announced the appointment of a new interim Chief Financial Officer: Marilyn Jentzen.

The appointment comes following the departure of Stewart Baker, who had served within the company for seven years as Financial Controller and Director of Finance. Baker resigned on December 20, 2023, but will continue to work with the company in order to facilitate a smooth transition to the new leadership.

Marilyn Jentzen is a very experienced executive, with over three decades spent working in financial services and accounting. The new Chief Financial Officer was described in a company statement as “an accounting expert, strong leader, and strategic thinker.”

The new Chief Financial Officer is in charge of leading the company’s financial policies and her responsibilities include overseeing the group’s accounting functions. Moreover, Marilyn Jentzen will have to ensure fiscal compliance within the company.

Marilyn Jentzen has previously served as the Chief Executive Officer of Innovative Impact Consulting, a business that she founded herself back in 2015. Before her entrepreneurial attempt, the executive was Senior Vice President of Finance at IGT in Las Vegas, Nevada from June 2014. Before that, Jentzen had a successful four-year tenure at Thomson Reuters.

Pleased and Fortunate

Speaking about the appointment, Brooks Pierce, President and Chief Executive Officer of Inspired Entertainment, declared that the company was “pleased and fortunate” to add “a leader of Marilyn’s caliber step into the role of interim CFO.”

The Chief Executive Officer underlined that Marilyn Jentzen has an approach that is both strategic and results-oriented and also boasts a track record of successful tenures in publicly listed companies.

The Board of Directors of Inspired Entertainment has also begun a search process to identify a permanent Chief Financial Officer for the company. The group has made a contract with a search firm that is in charge of evaluating candidates of the role.

Both the appointment of the interim CFO and the search for a permanent replacement underline the company’s commitment to maintaining financial stability while pursuing continued growth within the very competitive field of the iGaming industry.

Inspired Entertainment currently offers content, technology, hardware and services for iGaming, betting, lottery, social and leisure operators across both retail and mobile channels. The company operates in over 35 jurisdictions all around the world, supplying casino games for over 170 websites.
