Australian slot machine maker Aristocrat Leisure Ltd announced on Wednesday that it had nominated Julie Cameron-Doe as the group’s new chief financial officer. The appointment is subject to regulatory approval.
The CFO-elect joined Aristocrat in August 2013. She was most recently group general manager – finance.
Ms Cameron-Doe – described as having 20 years of experience in senior finance roles in industries including the media, publishing and e-commerce in Europe and Australia – will succeed Toni Korsanos, who is due to leave the company on March 31 next year. When Ms Korsanos’ imminent departure was announced in July, Aristocrat said she had not wanted to relocate to North America as envisaged under a planned corporate reshuffle.
“Ms Cameron-Doe will relocate to North America in the New Year, consistent with the company’s interests and the recent relocation of Aristocrat’s chief executive and managing director, Trevor Croker,” said Wednesday’s filing from the company to the Australian Securities Exchange announcing the proposed executive change.
“Julie is a strategic and results-driven finance leader who has made a significant impact during her four years heading the group finance function at Aristocrat, including contributing to successful mergers and acquisitions, and managing critical functions and enterprise-wide projects,” said Mr Croker in a prepared statement in the filing.
He added, referring to the departing CFO: ““I wish to thank Toni for her dedicated service, and wish her every success in her future endeavours.”
In November it was announced Ms Korsanos is to become a non-executive director of Australian casino operator Crown Resorts Ltd, subject to necessary regulatory approvals.
