Intralot CEO Antonopoulos retires
Greek-owned gaming and lottery provider Intralot has announced that Constantinos Antonopoulos has retired from his position as chief executive officer of the company.
Antonopoulos, who spent 22 years in the role at Intralot, will remain vice-chairman of the Intralot board of directors.
Antonis Kerastaris, former chief executive officer of the Hellas Online subsidiary of multinational technology company Intracom Group, has been brought in to replace Antonopoulos in the role.
“I would like to thank Mr Antonopoulos for his commitment to the Intracom and Intralot groups’ vision over three decades and his contribution towards creating a pioneering technological group with international recognition,” Socrates Kokkalis, Intralot founder and group chairman, said.
“The decision of Mr Antonopoulos was accepted while he remains a valuable personal advisor and member of the company board.”
Antonopoulos, whose retirement came into effect yesterday (Monday), added: “After 22 years at the helm of Intralot since its founding, I believe this is the time for a necessary management renewal.
“My colleagues and I are thankful for the support of the chairman of the board and the shareholders in a most enjoyable journey towards the creation of a large multinational company deeply rooted in five continents.
“I will continue to support the board and the management, towards the achievement of the company goals in the new era.”
