Alexander Ambrose joins after seven years with Ash Gaming and Playtech

Scientific Games has hired former Playtech finance director Alexander Ambrose as chief financial officer of its SG Digital subsidiary. 

Ambrose has worked in the iGaming industry since October 2011, when he joined slot developer Ash Gaming as finance director, months before Playtech agreed to acquire the studio. 

In 2013 he then became the solutions giant’s UK finance director, remaining in that role until being hired by SG Digital. 

“Alex is the perfect addition to our team as we level up our product portfolio and continue the rapid transformation of our sportsbook business to meet the needs of our growing US customer base,” SG Digital chief operating officer Jason Walbridge said of the appointment. 

“As a finance leader with strong industry expertise, Alex has extensive experience leading finance teams in a multi-product environment,” Walbridge added. “We’re glad to have him on board during this transformational time.”

In his new role, Ambrose is to report to Scientific Games executive vice president and chief financial officer Michael Quartieri.

“We are thrilled to have Alex join SG Digital and our global finance team,” Quarter said. “His in-depth financial experience in iGaming will enable him to drive operational excellence, execute best practices and position us for growth in our iGaming and sportsbook businesses.”
