Executive Director & CEO

Nigel was appointed Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Camelot in 2017, having previously been CEO at Camelot Global. He leads the Executive Team and has overall responsibility for the company’s day-to-day operations. Nigel joined Camelot in 1998 as Financial Controller and became Finance Director in 2003, later joining the Board in 2006.

Having played a key role in Camelot’s successful bid to operate The National Lottery in the third licence period, he became Finance and Operations Director in 2007, assuming overall responsibility for the successful implementation of the company’s transition commitments. This saw Camelot complete the largest and fastest lottery upgrade of its kind in the world. He then became Group Chief Financial Officer and Strategy Director in 2010, securing a four-year extension to Camelot’s UK licence.

As CEO of Camelot Global, Nigel won the private management agreement to run the Illinois Lottery and worked very closely with Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan in the successful bid to operate the Irish National Lottery. Other successes included winning the contract to work with the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery and launching a new online gaming platform for Swiss lottery operator Loterie Romande.
