International Game Technology PLC has announced that Beatrice H Bassey is set to leave its Board of Directors later this year, having notified the company on April 20 of her intention not to stand for re-election as a board member.
She will serve out her remaining term and will depart from the Board and its Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee after the conclusion of the firm’s annual general meeting of shareholders to be held on May 11.
Bassey declared that her intent not to stand for re-election is due to other professional commitments, as well as challenges posed by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. She further stated it was a privilege to work alongside the Board and IGT staff, and that she remains supportive of the company’s operations, policies and strategy.
Lorenzo Pellicioli, Chairman of IGT’s Board of Directors, said: “On behalf of the IGT Board of Directors, I would like to thank Beatrice for her dedicated service and valuable contributions to the Board. We wish her well in her future endeavours.”
IGT’s Board of Directors size will be reduced to 10 directors after the conclusion of its AGM.
