888 Holdings has confirmed that its chief financial officer and executive director Yariv Dafna will step down from his role at the end of March.
Dafna will leave the company following publication of 888’s final results for 2022, with the company’s Board now commencing a search to identify a successor.
“The Board and I would like to thank Yariv for the contribution he has made to 888 including playing a crucial role in the completion of our transformational combination with William Hill and leading the recent successful financing of 888's external debt,” said 888 Holdings chief executive Itai Pazner. “On behalf of everyone at 888, I wish him the very the best in his future endeavours.”
Dafna was appointed as 888’s finance chief in November 2020 to replace long-serving CFO Aviad Kobrine.
