Lottery.com, Inc. Appoints Accomplished Industry Leader Christopher Gooding as Non-Executive Director
AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Lottery.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: LTRY, LTRYW) (“Lottery.com” or the “Company”) names Christopher Anderson Gooding to its board of directors. His appointment is another important step in a new era of compliance with Nasdaq for the Company.
Christopher Gooding brings decades of service at respected law firms, predominantly within the heart of London’s financial district. His professional journey began as an Assistant Solicitor at Clifford Turner in London and Dubai, advancing to a 15-year tenure at Clyde & Co. A consummate legal strategist, he also served as a partner at LeBoeuf Lamb Greene & MacRae and Howard Kennedy. Notably, from 1999 to 2009, he held the position of Director at the Sovereign Trade Corporation. Adding to his diverse portfolio, Gooding subsequently held partner roles at Fasken Martineau and Nabarro LLC (now CMS). Since 2022, he has honed his expertise as a Consultant at Crowell and Morsing.
Of significance is Gooding’s extraordinary fusion of legal finesse with a substantial involvement in the corporate landscape. His credentials include being a founding director of a substantial NY-based hedge fund valued at over $500 million. He has also been a guiding presence on the Boards of UK-based companies spanning aviation, insurance, and cutting-edge startups, as well as spearheading initiatives in the green energy and aviation sectors. His hands-on spirit propelled the creation of a boutique hotels group in Morocco, a project he actively designed. The Lottery Board will benefit from Gooding’s insightful perspectives backed by his vast experience across an array of commercial realms.
This announcement comes on the heels of last week’s news of overwhelming shareholder approval for the Company’s strategic reverse stock split initiative, which capped the last requirement for the Company to regain full compliance with Nasdaq’s listing rules. The shareholders also supported the election of Nick Kounoupias as a Class II Director.
Leveraging fortified corporate governance, underpinned by a stalwart board and solid financial backing from UCIL, Lottery.com is now focusing on resuming operations in three major segments of its business model before the end of 2023. The Company anticipates new revenue streams from B2C ticket sales, international expansion, and technology licensing.
Christopher Gooding commented:
“My legal career has been characterized by crafting innovative commercial solutions to tackle unique client challenges. Identifying latent issues and orchestrating proactive solutions has been a hallmark of my approach. I am thrilled to contribute these proficiencies and more to a Board already steeped in profound insight and strategic acumen.”
Lottery.com Board Chairman and Interim CEO Matthew McGahan added:
“We extend a very warm welcome to Christopher. The appointment of an individual of his stature enriches our Board substantially. His legal acumen, coupled with a deep understanding of corporate governance, greatly augments our combined senior leadership experience. Bolstered by these strategic appointments and solid UCIL financing, we now have a much more robust operational and financial foundation to execute on our business plan. As we lean in to the second half of our fiscal year, our strategy’s central interest is to restore the Company’s revenue-driving operations. Our business is easily scalable, contains inherent potential and we look forward to updating the market on these and other positive developments in due course.”
