Gan, an Irish company which develops and sells B2B gambling software and gaming content, has appointed Karen Flores as its chief financial officer.

The appointment comes as the business continues to work toward obtaining a listing in the United States "as soon as reasonably practical".

Ms Flores brings 20 years of financial management, capital markets and operational experience to the role.

Most recently, she served as vice-president of corporate financial planning and analysis at Alorica, a customer services and call centre outsourcing solutions business.

In the role, she managed the global capital planning process, establishing and leading a committee overseeing more than $50m (€45m) in annual capital spending.

Dermot Smurfit Jnr, CEO of Gan, said: "We are pleased to welcome Karen to our leadership team as we continue working toward obtaining a US listing as soon as reasonably practical."

Established in 2002, Gan has been benefiting from the relaxation of gambling laws in the US in 2018.
