“I am delighted to welcome Kath to LTG, bringing a strong depth of public company experience in senior finance roles from a range of diversified industries with operations across international markets,” said chairman Andrew Brode. 

“Kath’s appointment is a signal of the talent LTG is able to attract at the very senior levels as we look to capitalise on the value-creation opportunities from recent acquisitions.

“I would also like to thank Neil Elton for supporting LTG’s growth as CFO in his seven years in the role.  In that time, LTG has dramatically expanded its revenue profile and international presence while reliably delivering returns for shareholders.”
