Harald Neumann, Ainsworth

Ainsworth Game Technology on Wednesday noted that its chief executive officer Harald Neumann has resigned as a director of the company’s board, but noted that he will continue as the company’s chief executive officer, with all other parts of Neumann’s role remaining unchanged.

The board will now be undertaking a search process to appoint an additional, independent, non-executive director.

AGT Chairman, Danny Gladstone said, “We appreciate Harald’s constructive decision to step down from the Board to ensure AGT complies with governance best practices. AGT now has 3 directors, with 2 of these being independent non-executives. We look forward to Harald’s ongoing leadership and contribution to AGT following his appointment as CEO.”
