Amaya appoints Chief Corporate Development Officer

11 May 2017

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Amaya Inc. today announced the appointment of Robin Chhabra to the newly created position of Chief Corporate Development Officer of Amaya. Mr. Chhabra will lead and oversee Amaya's corporate development function, reporting to Rafi Ashkenazi, Amaya's Chief Executive Officer. Amaya anticipates Mr. Chhabra will join the company in September 2017, following a brief garden leave from William Hill plc.

"Robin Chhabra's deep industry experience and vast professional network will help us pursue our ongoing strategic priorities, as well as drive growth through potential strategic and other opportunities," said Mr. Ashkenazi. "Robin is one of the most respected executives in the industry, and we are excited to add him to our team, where he will complement our existing executive management talent."

"Amaya is already a leader in online gaming, and I am eager to contribute to the company's future growth," said Mr. Chhabra. "I have tremendous respect and a strong relationship with the management team and look forward to working with them."

Mr. Chhabra is an experienced online gaming executive, most recently serving as Group Director of Strategy and Corporate Development for William Hill since May 2010, and as Director of Corporate Development for Inspired Gaming Group plc (later merged with Inspired Entertainment, Inc.) from 2006 to 2009. Prior to that, Mr. Chhabra spent 12 years in various executive roles at major financial, consultancy and auditing firms, including Evolution Securities (later acquired by Investec plc,) Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein Securities LLC (now part of Commerzbank), Andersen Business Consulting and PriceWaterhouseCoopers. Mr. Chhabra earned a BSc (Econ.) degree from London School of Economics and Political Science in 1993.

Mr. Chhabra's arrival is the latest management addition to Amaya, following the recent hiring of Bo Wänghammar as Managing Director of PokerStars Casino and Zeno Ossko as Managing Director of BetStars, and the promotion of Guy Templer as Chief Operating Officer of Amaya's brands.
