AppLovin also taps Margo Georgiadis, CEO of Ancestry.

AppLovin, a Palo Alto-based technology company, on Tuesday added Craig Billings, president and CFO for Wynn Resorts, to its board of directors.

AppLovin enables developers to market and publish their apps, with studios that create content and technology to deliver the app to users.

The company also appointed Margo Georgiadis, president and CEO of Ancestry, to its board.

Wynn Resorts owns and operates Wynn Las Vegas, Wynn Macau (pictured), Wynn Palace and Encore Boston Harbor.

Billings began his career at Deloitte, working with clients in the gaming and P&C insurance industries. At Goldman Sachs, he was a VP in the investment banking division and executed numerous capital markets and M&A transactions on behalf of clients in the gaming and hospitality sector. He also was responsible for establishing the firm’s dedicated gaming coverage in EMEA.

Later, Billings moved to Aristocrat Technologies, where he was chief digital officer.

“It is an honor to serve on AppLovin’s board and to join the organization during such an exciting time in the company’s history,” Billings said in a statement. “AppLovin has delivered significant business momentum over the last several years – building, investing and growing its offering, team and its technology – and I am eager to contribute to the continued success and performance of the team.”

Prior to Ancestry, Georgiadis served as CEO of Mattel, president of Google Americas, COO at Groupon and CMO of Discover Financial Services. She currently serves on the board of Handshake, WorkBoard, and McDonald’s.

“Margo’s career has focused on building high-performing global companies,” said Adam Foroughi, co-founder and CEO of AppLovin. “Her wealth of experience is particularly relevant as we continue to grow. Craig brings both financial acumen and global operational experience, with a career spanning investment banking, mobile games and hospitality. We are confident they will have an immense impact on helping AppLovin achieve our long-term goals.”
