GAN has named Brian Chang as its permanent chief financial officer after nearly 18 months fulfilling the role on an interim basis.

Chang assumed the position of interim CFO at GAN in November 2022, succeeding Karen Flores. 

Before taking on the interim role, Chang had held the position of senior vice president and corporate controller at GAN since September 2021. 

Prior to that, he served as vice president of accounting and reporting at Alorica from 2014 to 2021, and worked as an audit manager at Deloitte for nearly seven years. 

“I’d like to congratulate Brian on his appointment to permanently lead our finance team,” said GAN chairman David Goldberg. 

“Brian has proven his financial acumen having served as our interim CFO and he has the full backing of the board of directors.

“Brian’s proven leadership amongst the financial team and strong knowledge of accounting and financial controls leave us confident that he is the right person to guide us to a successful close of our merger with Sega Sammy.”

Sega Sammy acquisition

In November 2023, GAN announced a $107.6m acquisition agreement with Sega Sammy, setting the company’s value at $1.97 per share.

GAN shareholders have already approved the acquisition, and the deal’s closure is anticipated to take place in late 2024 or early 2025 pending the fulfilment or waiver of other closing conditions.

Chang’s permanent appointment follows that of GAN CEO Seamus McGill, who was appointed on a permanent basis in February.

McGill initially assumed the position on an interim basis in September 2023 after the departure of Dermot Smurfit, who held the role for 13 years. 

“I’d like to thank both Seamus and the board for their confidence,” Chang said of his appointment. 

“I look forward to the opportunity to continue to lead our finance team toward a successful closing of our merger with Sega Sammy.”
