Roman Syrotian, who held the co-CEO position since 2021, will remain a Member of the Supervisory Board, while Chief Finance Officer and Chief Revenue Officer will become Deputy CEOs.
For the past two years, Parimatch Tech – a holding company developing software and solutions for the entertainment and betting industry – has been operating with Roman Syrotian and Maksym Liashko working side by side as the co-CEOs. Starting from April 1st, 2022, Roman Syrotian will be focusing 100% of his time on the Supervisory Board activities, while Maksym Liashko becomes the Parimatch Tech CEO.
Syrotian will be dealing with strategic aspects of the business, shareholder relations, and resources allocation. Liashko will continue to handle most of the operational tasks of the holding company. Anna Motruk, who held two roles before the management restructuring (Chief Finance Officer & Deputy CEO), will leave her CFO position to focus on the Deputy CEO role. Evgen Belousov, ex-Chief Revenue Officer at Parimatch Tech, has also been appointed as Deputy CEO.
War impacts the fates of people and the fates of companies. The changes in the top management structure and move to the single CEO model will allow us to become even more flexible, speed up the operational and decision-making processes. I am confident that Maksym and the team are ready to lead Parimatch Tech during these tough times! I will continue my work in the company in a non-operational role as a member of the Supervisory Board.
In times of war, the structure, and development procedures within the company had to be reviewed and adapted to the new reality. With Roman refocusing all his attention and skills toward the Supervisory Board activities, I am certain that Parimatch Tech will withstand these difficult times and continue to be a successful global business. I would also like to congratulate Anna Motruk and Evgen Belousov with their appointments as Deputy CEOs. Their skills and knowledge shaped Parimatch Tech into what it is today – a successful international business – so together we will ensure that Parimatch Tech continues to grow and attract success.
As Deputy CEO at Parimatch Tech, I will be overseeing the business development, business performance, tech, and data streams together with the heads of these departments. We will focus more attention on business diversification, which, I believe, is key to the company’s survival and growth.
The war showed us that going beyond our formal responsibilities and being open-minded is key to ensuring the company’s success and stability. That’s why building cross-functional teams within the company will be an important element of our business going forward. Flexibility and resourcefulness are crucial elements of overcoming any challenges, and I am certain that the future holds a lot more victories.
