Flutter appoints Greg McCaw as director of inclusion and diversity

Wizard Games, a subsidiary of NeoGames, has announced the appointment of Benedict McDonagh as Managing Director in a move to “take the studio to the next level”.

Greg McCaw has been appointed to the newly created role of group director of inclusion and diversity at Flutter Entertainment, where he will form an instrumental part in developing and executing the group’s inclusion and diversity strategy.

As part of the role, McCaw will partner with the board, business leaders and HR colleagues to identify training and development for all colleague levels, as well as chair the I&D committee to monitor and report on progress against the group’s targets. 

Flutter says that McCaw, who takes up the position immediately and will be reporting to Caroline Ross, group chief people officer of Flutter Entertainment, will be key in the implementation of a strategy which aims to ensure that everyone at the firm shares a strong sense of belonging in a truly inclusive environment

Ross explained: “I’m delighted to welcome Greg to the team. He brings a wealth of experience, which the wider group will benefit from as we continue to shape our inclusion and diversity strategy. Our goal is for all colleagues to feel a shared sense of ownership in our business. 

“We want to build on our foundations to be a truly inclusive place to work, one where difference is celebrated and valued, because it is only when we all understand the role we play that will we really shift the dial. I’m really excited about what we can achieve together.” 

McCaw, lauded as bringing “significant knowledge and insight to the role,” most recently served as head of inclusion and people engagement at Sky Betting & Gaming, where he worked closely with the leadership team to build an inclusion strategy.

Prior to SBG, he worked for New Look where he served as senior HR business partner for the UK & Ireland, introducing partners such as Stonewall and ENEI to further the retailer’s efforts in the I&D space. 

Greg said of the new role: “Stepping into this newly created role is beyond doubt one of the most exciting opportunities I have ever embarked on. Already I’ve seen a willingness and commitment to developing a strong strategy for inclusion and diversity at all levels within this organisation, especially from senior leaders, where it can make a real impact.”
