Smurfit-backed gaming and gaming technology company Gan, listed on the Nasdaq, has accepted Karen Flores’ resignation from her position as chief financial officer.
Lores, who was appointed in January 2020 ahead of its US listing, has also resigned from Gan’s board of directors.
Dermot Smurfit Jnr, Chief Executive of Gan, said: “Karen’s leadership and financial acumen were critical components of Gan’s development into a US-listed public company and our at-time complex acquisition of Coolbet in early 2021.
“I am very grateful for Karen’s dedication to Gan and wish her all the best in the future.”
Gan has appointed Brian Chang, the company’s senior vice president and corporate controller, to serve as CFO in the interim. Gan’s search for a replacement is ongoing and hopes to provide an update on the process “in the near future.”
Last month, Smurfit and Flores announced that Gan would suspend revenue guidance for the remainder of the fiscal year, citing uncertainty about the Fifa World Cup and currency fluctuations.
Dragons’ Den Duo addresses real estate exhibition
The Property Show, a new Irish property fair, has secured EBS as title sponsor for their inaugural exhibition in February 2023. It’s the result of the hard work of Claire Finnan and Jennifer Shaw, the entrepreneurs behind Pregnancy & Baby Fair, which has been exhibiting at RDS for 13 years.
The pair first garnered national attention at Dragons’ Den, where they were the first contestants to enlist the support of all five Dragons for their idea of Pregnancy & Baby Fair. After the first fair, they bought all five kites.
As part of the title sponsorship of the new event, EBS will be there with its mortgage advisors.
Other special features include a do-it-yourself area with designers, architects and do-it-yourself construction companies.
Captivating salary – if only the recruits were there
Do you want to earn more than a garda, nurse or teacher? According to the Irish Plant Contractors Association (IPCA), you can earn more than €50,000 a year as a plant operator working in construction.
The IPCA is looking for new employees for its member companies. The body represents the country’s major excavator and heavy machinery operators who lift heavy loads on construction sites across the country.
While there is talk of job cuts, the IPCA insists its member companies could conservatively create 3,000 jobs due to the massive demand in the industry – if only they could get the recruits.
