The appointment is effective immediately and subject to the receipt of necessary regulatory pre-approvals.

Having spent seven years in senior finance leadership roles at the group, Denby was promoted to Aristocrat Deputy CFO in February 2022.

Previously, she led finance teams at Nine MSN and GE, the latter across both Australian and European business units.

“I am thrilled to appoint Sally Denby as Chief Financial Officer of Aristocrat and welcome her to our executive leadership team,” said Aristocrat CEO & Managing Director Trevor Croker.

“Over her successful career at Aristocrat, Sally has proven to be an outstanding enterprise leader and a trusted finance partner. Sally’s cultural impact, deep engagement with our operating businesses and understanding of our obligations as an ASX listed company further add to her credentials.

Earlier this year, Aristocrat reported operating revenue of AU$2.75bn (US$1.92bn) for the six months ended 31 March 2022, a 23% increase from the six months to 31 March 2021. EBITDA grew 30% year-on-year to AU$970.3m, with the EBITDA margin climbing 1.9 points to 35.3%.

Croker continued: “In particular, as Deputy Chief Financial Officer, Sally has worked effectively with myself and our leaders in supporting the execution of our growth strategy and ensuring seamless continuity post the departure of our previous CFO in April.

“A comprehensive global search identified Sally as the best candidate to step into the role, at this exciting time in Aristocrat’s growth journey.

“I congratulate Sally on her appointment and look forward to her ongoing contribution to Aristocrat."
