Penn National names Apple’s David Williams as new CFO
Penn National Gaming has appointed David William, a Apple executive, as its new chief financial officer and executive vice president with effect from 3 March.
Williams will assume responsibility for all Penn National’s financial and treasury functions, as well as helping to develop and support its various strategic growth initiatives including its igaming and sports betting businesses.
Replacing William (B.J.) Fair, who announced his intention to step down in September of last year, Williams will report directly to Penn National’s new chief executive Jay Snowden.
Williams will join Penn National from Apple where, since 2012, he has served as chief financial officer of Claris, the technology giant’s B2B software subsidiary formally known as FileMaker.
In this role, Williams was responsible for all aspects of the division’s finance and strategic planning. He also managed its information systems and operations functions.
Williams joined Apple’s AppleSoft division in 1995 and worked on the AppleSoft integration into Claris later that year.
