Pettit on the move
The former group electronic gaming director at Gala Coral
, John Pettit, has been hired by rival gambling group Ladbrokes
Pettit, who is on leave pending departure from Gala
, will join Ladbrokes early next year in a reportedly commercial role reporting to Richard Ames.
Ladbrokes is investing substantial sums in its restructuring, including new server based gaming terminals at its many retail outlets, and Pettit's responsibilities will presumably be associated with this expansion.
