FSB recruits ex-Entain exec Michaela Bonomini as Chief People Officer

FSB has added a third former Entain leader to its ranks after the betting and gaming supplier strengthened its executive team with the appointment of Michaela Bonomini as Chief People Officer.

In the role, the former Entain Head of HR will be tasked by heading up with the group’s HR function and adopting an overarching people-centric strategy to maintain high employee retention rates.

Bonomini had previously spent three years with Entain, then under the GVC moniker, where she led the restructuring and people transformation programmes after the acquisition of Bwin.Party in 2016.

“FSB’s growth into a tier one global supplier over the last 18 months has been hugely impressive and I’m passionate about playing a key role in this continuing growth journey,” said Bonomini.

“My job now is to work closely with our people across the regions and put dynamic practices in place to make sure FSB continues to attract, develop and retain top talent.”

Bonomini becomes the third former Entain employee to join the group, following the earlier appointments of Global Delivery Director Ken Paterson and former CTO Keith Laidlaw as a board member.

Dave McDowell, Chief Executive Officer at FSB, commented: “Michaela is another outstanding hire into our growing, global executive team.

Building a structure around our internal culture and employee benefit programme has been a key priority of ours and as our employee numbers continue to grow globally, it was clear we needed to recruit a major industry figure to enable us to execute this across our regions with skill, experience and understanding. 

“Michaela’s top of the market experience at GVC meant she was the clear choice to fill this role and we’re thrilled to have her on board.
