Sportradar has recruited former Zynga finance chief Gerard Griffin as the company’s new chief financial officer (CFO).

Griffin, who boasts more than 25 years of experience in the gaming, media, and technology sectors, will take over from current CFO Ulrich Harmuth effective 9 May, 2023.

Harmuth has occupied the CFO position for the last seven months on an interim basis alongside his primary role as chief strategy officer.

Griffin will be based in St. Gallen, Switzerland, in his new role, where he will be responsible for the company’s accounting, finance and investor relations operations.

He will report directly to Sportradar CEO Carsten Koerl.

Griffin previously held the position of CFO at gaming giant Zynga.

During his tenure at the San Francisco-based mobile specialist, Griffin played a crucial role in improving the company’s revenue, profitability and cash flow.

Prior to joining Zynga, Griffin served as SVP of finance at Electronic Arts Inc. (EA) for more than a decade, where he also led the finance division for EA’s marketing, publishing and studio divisions.

He also worked as CFO for EA International in Geneva, Switzerland, for over six years, while his extensive CV includes stints at NBC Universal, Primedia and KPMG.

“As a highly accomplished CFO with relevant experience across several sectors, we are confident that Gerard will bring discipline and strategic focus as we continue to drive growth and profitability around the world,” said Sportradar CEO Koerl.

Griffin now has less than a month to prepare before Sportradar publishes its Q1 2023 financial results on 10 May.
