Warn to step down from Sportech board

Ben Warn is set to step down from his role as a non-executive director on Sportech’s board.

Warn will not seek reelection when his term ends at Sportech’s annual general meeting, meaning he will leave the board on 31 May.

Warn – who had previously been managing director of sports data and media specialist Perform’s portals and consumer division before the business merged with Stats – joined the Sportech board in June 2020.

Sportech noted that Warn “supported the transformational change in the group,” as it drastically downsized since he joined.

“I am extremely proud of what we achieved through incredibly challenging global conditions, since I joined the board, and wish the group continued success,” Warn said.

Sportech divested a number of key assets over the last two years, noting its sales of its Global Tote business to BetMakers and raffle technology supplier Bump 50:50 to Canadian Banknote as particularly important.

This downsizing led to Sportech removing its shares from the London Stock Exchange and moving to the Alternative Investment Market, after which CEO Richard McGuire and chief financial officer Tom Hearne stepped down from their roles.
