Inspired Entertainment has announced a modification in its CFO position with the resignation of Stewart Baker from his roles as CFO and principal accounting officer. 

Marilyn Jentzen, bringing over three decades of expertise in financial and accounting domains, steps in as the Interim CFO and principal accounting officer. Notably, she held a senior position as SVP of Finance at IGT. Jentzen’s professional background includes leadership roles in the finance and accounting sectors. In her interim capacity as CFO, she will be responsible for overseeing financial policies, managing finance and accounting functions, and ensuring compliance with financial regulations.

The company has commenced the process of seeking a new CFO by enlisting the services of a search firm to assess potential candidates, both internal and external, for the role. Despite his resignation, Baker will continue to aid the company throughout 2024, contributing to the efforts related to restatement.

Brooks Pierce, Inspired President and CEO, said: “We are pleased and fortunate to have a leader of Marilyn’s calibre step into the role of Interim CFO. Marilyn is a strategic, results-oriented executive with proven success leading, developing, and improving multi-national finance operations at publicly listed companies. She is well-positioned to support the continued execution of our financial priorities while the Board conducts its search for our new CFO.”

In recent developments, Inspired Entertainment’s collaboration with Caesars Digital brought forth the introduction of Hybrid Dealer products, aiming to enhance the gaming offerings at Caesars Palace Online Casino. Furthermore, Inspired recently welcomed Ian Freeman as the Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) for Virtuals. With an extensive background of over 20 years in iGaming and sports, Freeman brings valuable experience gained from his time at Kambi, IGT, and FSBTech.
