Gaming Realms deputy chairman Atul Bali is stepping down from his role but will remain a non-executive director of the London-listed gaming business.

Bali has relinquished the deputy chairman role as of July 1st, but has agreed to continue to advise the company on strategy, mergers and acquisitions and business development, as well as continuing his duties as a director.

He joined Gaming Realms as a non-executive director in May 2014, before taking on the deputy chairman role following the company's acquisition of RealNetworks' mobile games publishing business and Slingo brand in 2015.

Bali will now divide his time among a number of director and chairman roles in the gaming sector. This includes non-executive director roles for instant win games developer IWG and sportsbook solutions supplier Metric Gaming, as well as chairing the board of Meridian Gaming.

In March this year he also joined the board of rate earth element mining business Rainbow Rare Earths.

Shares in Gaming Realms plc (Co.Data) (AIM:GMR) were trading at 13.25 pence per share in London earlier Monday.
