Mr Chiara joins IGT from multinational corporation CNH Industrial NV, where he most recently served as CFO and chief sustainability officer, according to Monday’s statement. Mr Chiara previously held various financial and operational roles at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV and, amongst other prior positions, as a consultant at PricewaterhouseCoopers Advisory.
The release quoted IGT’s chief executive Marco Sala as saying: “We are excited to have Max join the IGT team, both as a member of my senior leadership team and as a board member.”
Mr Sala added: “His broad and deep background in all facets of global finance and operations, in addition to his high standards of excellence, will be tremendous assets to our organisation.”
In Monday’s statement, IGT said also that it had appointed Beatrice Bassey as an independent director to the firm’s board, effective March 20. Ms Bassey is currently group general counsel, chief compliance officer and corporate secretary of financial services holding company Atlas Mara Ltd.
