Bristol’s client, DEQ Inc., is a casino table games manufacturer in the midst of making big changes to their business. DEQ needed a new CFO, to be based in Las Vegas, “who can keep up with a sharp, poised and decisive leader.” In addition, the candidate would be tasked with overseeing installation of a new accounting system, have expertise with public filings and be comfortable operating in a regulated environment.
The right candidate was not easy to find; he or she needed to have appropriate finance management expertise and previous experience in the manufacturing side of the business (different from the operator side). Bottom line, says DEQ President and CEO, Joe Bertolone, “They need to move fast and take the bull by the horns.”
The solution, facilitated by Bristol President Ben Farber, is Libby Lamm. Libby has held diversified financial and controller positions within a variety of organizations and industries. Her background with established companies as well as fast-paced startups checked all the boxes. As the new Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer, Libby has hit the ground running!
Says Bertolone, “Libby will be an instant asset to the executive team. Her broad financial experience and knowledge of not only gaming but various industries will be invaluable as we continue to execute our business plan and strategic initiatives.”
