Technology Online New board appointment intensifies 888’s US focus July 20, 2020 By Tim Poole Operator’s new non-executive board member is managing partner at US investment fund with net worth of “over $20bn.” 888 Holdings has appointed Limor Ganot to its board as a non-executive director. Ganot will join 888’s board from 1 August, while the appointment is not insignificant from a US perspective. Indeed, Ganot is managing partner at Gefen Capital, a US-Israeli investment fund targeting high-potential Israeli start-ups. Gefen Capital is said to have a net worth of “over $20bn,” according to Ganot’s LinkedIn profile, as well as the company’s website. 888 chairman Brian Mattingley said: "I am delighted to welcome Limor to the 888 Board. “Her involvement as a leader in a diverse range of businesses, together with her understanding of disruptive technologies, will be of significant benefit to 888 as we continue to grow and develop as a global leader in online gaming." 888 CEO Itai Pazner has previously told Gaming America he is bullish about the operator’s US prospects.
