Intralot chief Antonopoulos to step down

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

Constantinos Antonopoulos has opted to retire from his position as chief executive officer of Greek-owned gaming and lottery provider Intralot.

Antonopoulos, whose retirement came into effect yesterday (Monday), will step down after spending 22 years in the role. Despite retiring from the position, he will continue to serve as vice-chairman of the Intralot board of directors.

Intralot has moved quickly to appoint Antonis Kerastaris as a replacement for Antonopoulos. Kerastaris joins the firm having most recently served as chief executive officer of the Hellas Online subsidiary of multinational technology company Intracom Group.

“After 22 years at the helm of Intralot since its founding, I believe this is the time for a necessary management renewal,” Antonopoulos said.

“My colleagues and I are thankful for the support of the chairman of the board and the shareholders in a most enjoyable journey towards the creation of a large multinational company deeply rooted in five continents. I will continue to support the board and the management, towards the achievement of the company goals in the new era.”

Socrates Kokkalis, the founder and group chairman of Intralot who worked alongside Antonopoulos during his entire time at the firm, added: “I would like to thank Mr. Antonopoulos for his commitment to the Intracom and Intralot groups vision over three decades and his contribution towards creating a pioneering technological group with international recognition.

“The decision of Mr. Antonopoulos was accepted while he remains a valuable personal advisor and member of the company board.”

Intralot did not respond to a request from TotallyGaming.com to comment further on the management changes.
