Chief executive officer
Taking over from a founder CEO is never an easy task but former CFO Matt King seems to have negotiated the transition with aplomb.
His timing has been impeccable, with a short bedding-in period coming before the repeal of PASPA and subsequent acquisition by Paddy Power Betfair.
