Tabcorp Confirms Mark Howell as New Chief Financial Officer

Mr. Howell, currently leading the finance function as General Manager Liquor Finance & Network Optimisation at Coles Group Limited’s Liquor business, will assume his role at Tabcorp prior to June 2024.

Mr. Howell’s appointment brings a wealth of experience to Tabcorp, particularly from the consumer and retail sectors.

The decision to appoint Mr. Howell is subject to receiving all necessary regulatory approvals. This announcement has been duly authorized for release by the Tabcorp Disclosure Committee.

Tabcorp Managing Director and CEO Adam Rytenskild said: “Mark is the perfect fit for Tabcorp as we deliver our transformation. He’s passionate about our growth story and dynamic in his thinking.

“Wagering is one of the most competitive industries in Australia and Mark comes from an equally competitive customer focused industry. His experience leading finance teams at Coles and working closely with investors will be invaluable moving forward.”
