Scientific Games adds former Barclays Bank CEO to board

Scientific Games has appointed Tim Throsby, former chief executive of Barclays Bank, as an independent director and member of its board.


Throsby will sit on the Scientific Games board alongside eight other directors, the majority of whom are also independent.

He most recently served as chief executive of Barclays Bank and also president of Barclays International, where he designed and executed a restructuring effort to transform the performance and culture of the organisation.

Under Throsby’s leadership, Barclays Bank doubled its return on tangible equity (ROTE) over a $20bn (£15.53bn/€17.14bn) top line portfolio of businesses.

“Tim brings extraordinary financial and operational leadership experience; I’m confident Scientific Games will greatly benefit from his expertise as we continue to execute on our strategy to drive growth across our business and unlock value for our stakeholders,” Scientific Games executive chairman Jamie Odell said.
