Tabcorp has appointed Coles Liquor exec, Mark Howell as its new Chief Financial Officer, to begin in the role by June 2024.
Howell is currently General Manager Liquor Finance & Network Optimisation at Coles Liquor. He joined Coles in 2017, just prior to its demerger from Wesfarmers Limited, and since then has held senior finance, strategy, business development and investor relations roles.
Prior to Coles, Howell began his career at Ernst & Young, going on to hold senior investment banking roles at Rothschild and Goldman Sachs in Australia and New York.
Howell brings with him a wealth of consumer and retail experience, which will be an asset to the Tabcorp team, according to Managing Director and CEO Adam Rytenskild.
“Mark is the perfect fit for Tabcorp as we deliver our transformation. He’s passionate about our growth story and dynamic in his thinking.
“Wagering is one of the most competitive industries in Australia and Mark comes from an equally competitive customer focused industry. His experience leading finance teams at Coles and working closely with investors will be invaluable moving forward,” he said.
