Pokie maker Aristocrat (ASX:ALL) has added two new non-executive directors to its board, including a 25-year veteran of the gambling industry.
The appointees are Stephen Morro – former COO and president of the gambling division of IGT – and Dr Ian Blackburne, a former research scientist who spent 25 years in the petroleum industry.
Pending regulatory approval, Blackburne will take his seat on the board on December 1, and Morro will join on January 9, 2010.
“These additions will further enhance the Board’s strategic capabilities, and give us significant insights into the critical US market,” Aristocrat chairman David Simpson said.
