888 Holdings has appointed Mark Summerfield, the former interim chief financial officer of William Hill, to its board as an independent non-executive director.

Joining 888 with immediate effect, Summerfield will also become chairman of the operator’s audit committee, serving alongside other members Zvika Zivlin and Anne de Kerckhove.

Summerfield acted as interim CFO at William Hill from July 2016 and December 2017. He also served as a partner at multinational professional services network KPMG between October 1999 to May 2017.

During his time with KMPG, Summerfield held various senior roles such as global head of gaming, UK head of audit for technology, media and telecoms, and UK head of assurance. He was also a partner at KPMG between May 2003 and October 2005.

“With his extensive experience working with boards and audit committees of major listed companies, Mark brings a wealth of experience to 888,” 888 chairman, Brian Mattingley, said. “This will be of considerable benefit as the company continues to grow and pursue its strategic objectives. 

“He will be a valuable addition to the board and the audit committee and I am delighted that he has agreed to join us.”
