London-listed mobile gaming supplier Nektan is searching for a new chief financial officer after the company announced that David Sparks would be leaving the role this month.

Sparks will leave Nektan and step down from the company’s board at the end of December. He will remain with the business for a period of time to ensure a smooth transition however.

"We would like to thank David for his contribution to the group in his role as CFO and wish him well for the future,” said Nektan's executive chairman Gary Shaw.

Nektan has now commenced the process to recruit a replacement group CFO.

Sparks had joined Nektan as CFO in September 2014, with responsibility for all aspects of the company’s finance, HR and legal functions.

He has experience in managing financial operations gained during a career spanning more than 25 years, and has held senior positions in London as well as in Paris and Latin America.

He also served as CFO for financial trading firm London Capital Group, and was director of financial and strategic projects for Sportingbet.

Shares in Nektan plc (Co. Data) (AIM:NKTN) were trading at 143.00 pence per share in London earlier Monday.
