Rank Group has expanded its Board with the appointment of Gamesys’ former finance chief Keith Laslop as a non-executive director.
Laslop will join the company’s Board from 1 September and will also serve as a member of the Audit Committee.

Intertain Group became JPJ Group in 2018 and then Gamesys Group in 2019, and was subsequently acquired by Bally's in 2021.
“We are delighted to welcome Keith to the Rank board,” said Rank Group chair Alex Thursby. “His extensive financial and digital gaming experience will enhance the effectiveness and skillset of our Board and will support our growth strategy. We look forward to working with him over the coming years.”
