New FD for amusement machines biz Sceptre

Amusement machine provider Sceptre has appointed Adrian Gare as its group FD.

Gare is a former director of corporate finance at Baker Tilly in Manchester, who has worked closely with Sceptre over the past ten years.

Sceptre has been involved in a number of acquisitions in recent years, including Crown Leisure Rentals and Australian business 8 Ball.

Lesley Humphrys steps down from the board and takes on the operational FD role for Sceptre and its other principal trading company Regal Amusements.

“Lesley has considerable experience of the complexities and dynamics required to derive shareholder value from these organisations with Adrian’s appointment further facilitating this,” the company said in its statement to the stock exchange.
