Gary McGann, Chair, commented: “We are delighted to announce John’s appointment as Chair. John has had a stellar career in Kellogg Company, one of the most internationally renowned companies in the world. He brings with him an enormous wealth of leadership experience in strategic, financial, and operational matters.
It has been a privilege to serve as Chair of this very special Company and I wish John every success as he joins the Board at this pivotal point in Flutter’s evolution. I will use my remaining period as Chair to ensure a seamless transition to John.”
