Pinnacle CEO Paris Smith To Step Down After 17 Years

Paris Smith, the long-serving chief executive of Pinnacle Sports, has announced her decision to step down from her position after nearly 17 years at the helm.

Smith, who assumed the role in August 2006, will transition into an advisory role within the company.

In a post on her LinkedIn page, Smith expressed her excitement about the new challenge and the opportunity to explore new ventures and strategic projects alongside Pinnacle owner Magnus Hedman. She emphasized her continued support for the company and its team while relinquishing the day-to-day responsibilities of being CEO.

Reflecting on her tenure at Pinnacle, Smith noted the significant growth the company has experienced under her leadership, expanding its scope and market presence. She expressed her unwavering passion for the industry and its people, highlighting her dedication to building a diverse and capable management team at Pinnacle, which gives her confidence in the company's future.

Smith expressed her hope of leaving a lasting legacy as Pinnacle's CEO, acknowledging the privilege and honour it has been to lead such an incredible brand and organisation. She expressed gratitude to the Pinnacle team, whom she considers friends and family, and praised the unique culture that sets the company apart.

As part of the transition, Pinnacle has already initiated a search for a suitable candidate to fill the CEO position. Smith expressed her enthusiasm for this exciting time and extended her heartfelt thanks to everyone who has contributed to her 17-year journey at Pinnacle and the previous 11 years in the industry, acknowledging their role in making it a truly special part of her life.

Smith's departure marks a significant milestone in Pinnacle's history, and her successor will have big shoes to fill as they continue to guide the company forward.
