Checkd Group appoints Sam Turnock as new Finance Director

23 February 2023

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Checkd Group has promoted Sam Turnock to the position of Finance Director, as the UK-based iGaming company bids to continue accelerating its growth through the execution of successful business strategies.

Turnock’s new role will see him head up the business intelligence area of the organization, while also managing all of the group’s finances across its Checkd Media, Checkd Dev and Checkd International subsidiaries.

Having originally joined Checkd in June 2019, Turnock progressed to become Financial Controller of Checkd Media. He was instrumental in the successful launch of North America-focused sports betting community site FlashPicks and the acquisition of 10 CPA state licenses in the United States.

Turnock takes on his new job as Finance Director at a crucial time for the business, with North American growth recently fueled by the launch of the new Smart Picks betting data tool.

This follows a series of notable successes for the Group’s award-winning Dev division, with bespoke tech solutions for media and betting operator partners including Sky Bet’s Acca Assist, the Sky Sports Fantasy Football platform and the talkSPORT EDGE app.

Alex Beecham at Checkd Media, said: “The position of Finance Director is a vital one as we continue to scale up our operations in both the U.K. and North America. It was important that we identified a candidate who has a strong track record in analyzing and making valuable decisions that are grounded in data.

“Sam fit the bill for us in every regard. His performance since first joining our business four years ago has been exemplary, as we have seen with his key role in the FlashPicks launch and the acquisition of all of our CPA state licenses. He has also been a vital figure within the contract and procurement side of the business and we look forward to delivering further growth together in the months and years to come.”

Sam Turnock, Finance Director at Checkd Group, said: “I am incredibly proud to be taking on the role of Finance Director at a time when the Group is experiencing such dynamic growth.

“Checkd Group is in the strongest position in its history; with an experienced team driving our strategic initiatives forward, we are very well-positioned for considerable further growth.”
