Tucker assumes the role at Aristocrat, the gaming content and technology provider, following Jo’s resignation. Tucker begins her tenure today having already received the necessary regulatory pre-approval for her appointment.

Tucker joined Sydney, Australia-headquartered Aristocrat in October 2021 and is currently the group deputy chief legal officer. The company secretary is directly accountable to the board, through the chairman, for all governance matters that relate to the board’s proper functioning.

Kristy Jo resigned as company secretary

Jo became company secretary in June 2021 and had held the role of associate general counsel since 2018. Prior to joining Aristocrat, Jo worked at NBN Co Limited, Newcastle Permanent Building Society and law firm Allens Linklaters.

During her tenure, Jo assisted the group in its acquisition of Roxor in early 2023. Aristocrat is also in the process of taking over NeoGames, with a $1.20bn deal struck in May last year. That deal is expected to complete before the end of H1 2024.

An Aristocrat statement read: “The board thanks Ms Jo for her contribution to Aristocrat and congratulates Ms Tucker on her appointment.”
