During his time at the helm of Buzz Bingo, Matthews oversaw a successful rebrand of the business while leading the company through the Covid-19 pandemic.

Matthews said of his departure: “This has been a difficult decision – especially when you care about a business as much as I do about Buzz. That said, I do believe that with the company now profitable after the Covid shutdown and Digital growing rapidly, the timing couldn’t be better to hand the baton over to an excellent candidate such as Dominic.”

Taking over as CEO will be current COO Dominic Mansour, who commented: Dominic said: “It’s been an absolute pleasure to work alongside Chris since joining Buzz Bingo in January 2021. I have learned a tremendous amount from him as to what it takes to grow and protect this much-loved brand. The business is in good shape for the future, and I am excited to lead it on its onward journey, alongside the very talented management team and with the support of our hard-working and committed colleagues.”

Meanwhile, speaking of the changes, John Kelly OBE, Buzz Bingo’s chairman, said: ‘’Chris has successfully led the business through a change of ownership, two years of pandemic disruption, and a reorganisation of the company’s property portfolio. Under his excellent stewardship, the Buzz brand was born, as was, both of which have grown from strength to strength. We want to thank Chris for his leadership and wish him the best of good fortune for the future.”
