Sam Allanson will begin serving as Rank Interactive's Chief Financial Officer later this year, according to a statement from The Rank Group.

Allanson comes from Entain, where he presently serves as Commercial Finance Director and is in charge of implementing value-adding financial initiatives across the Group.

He was the Commercial Finance Director at Ladbrokes when he joined Entain in June 2017, after the merger of Ladbrokes and Coral and before the company was acquired by GVC.

Prior to joining Ladbrokes, Allanson worked for Sky in senior finance roles.

He will continue to be in Gibraltar and report to Richard Harris, CFO of the Rank Group.

Harris said: “I am delighted to welcome Sam as we continue to grow our Interactive business. His experience in consumer-facing businesses, particularly in betting and gaming, will be extremely valuable as we continue to implement our strategy.

Allanson said: “Rank Interactive is an exciting place to be right now in the betting and gaming industry. Drawing from my previous experience in the sector, I look forward to contributing to Rank Interactive’s ongoing success and supporting the finance team in delivering the ambitious plans that Rank has for its digital growth. I am excited to be part of a senior management team with such a clear vision for growth.”

Rank announced Andrew Peat's hiring as Managing Director of the Interactive division earlier this summer.
