Gaming Intelligence Hot 50 2021
Operational chief financial officer
Few in-house finance professionals are as influential or as busy as Lara Falzon. After cutting her gaming industry teeth at King.com, she joined Evoke Gaming and was instrumental in selling the business to Mr Green. She then joined Red Tiger and was instrumental in selling that business to NetEnt. She stayed on at NetEnt and was instrumental in selling the business to Evolution Gaming.
You can spot the theme. Falzon makes good companies great companies, and then is expert at guiding them through the acquisition process. Evolution would be wise to make her an offer she can not refuse when it finalises the acquisition of NetEnt. If it does not, watch her next move. It will be to a company that is going places.
