Light & Wonder has named Oliver Chow as its new EVP, CFO and Treasurer. Chow stepped into the role of Interim CFO in August and was the company’s SVP of Corporate Finance prior to his latest appointment.

Chow said he is eager to collaborate with the company’s board and with the leadership team.

He commented, “It is a privilege to be appointed as Light & Wonder’s CFO. I’m excited to work with the company’s leadership and Board to execute on our clear strategy and build on our strong financial profile.

“I am looking forward to supporting the organization to further enable growth, margin expansion, and financial execution.”

Chow holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Albany. He went on to earn an Executive MBA from the UCLA Anderson School of Management.

He joined Light & Wonder in October 2022. Prior to his time with the company, Chow held several senior-level finance roles at Aristocrat. While there, he served as the company’s CFO - Americas, EMEA and Customer Experience.

Light & Wonder CEO Matt Wilson commended Chow for his accomplishments with the company and described him as an ideal fit for his new position.

Wilson said, “After a thorough search by the Board and the leadership team, I’m pleased to appoint Oliver as our CFO. Over the last four months, we’ve all been impressed with Oliver’s ability to seamlessly step into the role of CFO.

“With more than 15 years of entertainment and gaming leadership experience and deep financial expertise, Oliver was the candidate best positioned to lead us forward.

"His attention to detail, combined with his willingness to take on a wider variety of challenges within the organization with ease, has made us resolute in our decision.”
