NorthStar Gaming, the owner and operator of NorthStarbets.ca, an online casino and sportsbook gaming platform in Ontario, has announced upcoming changes to its senior-level team. The company’s current chief financial officer (CFO), Jennifer Barber, will be stepping down from her role effective December 1, 2023.
Although specific details regarding Barber’s decision to step down were not provided, NorthStar confirmed that she plans to pursue another opportunity after leaving her CFO position. To fill the vacant role, the company has chosen Chin Dhushenthen, one of its senior-level executives with extensive experience.
Dhushenthen, who currently serves as NorthStar’s vice president of finance and compliance, will assume the position of interim CFO once Barber steps down. In this role, he will be responsible for overseeing strategic financial processes and ensuring a smooth transition to a new permanent CFO.
NorthStar has not disclosed whether it has begun considering internal or external candidates for the permanent CFO position. Additionally, the company has not provided a timeline for when it expects to hire a permanent CFO.
Dhushenthen brings more than 25 years of executive-level experience across various sectors, including finance, risk management, technology, and compliance. He joined NorthStar in 2021 and has played a pivotal role in developing the company’s financial reporting processes and other important functions related to regulatory reporting and compliance.
Outside of NorthStar, Dhushenthen held senior-level positions at The Hunter Group, Azerty United Canada, and Hydrogenics Corporation. Prior to joining NorthStar Gaming, he spent 13 years at CAPREIT, the largest publicly traded provider of quality rental housing in Canada, where he held significant financial leadership roles.
Michael Moskowitz, chair and CEO of NorthStar Gaming, expressed gratitude to Barber for her dedication and hard work. He commended her experience and its impact on the company’s growth, particularly highlighting her involvement in the acquisition of Slapshot Media. Moskowitz wished Barber success in her new financial leadership role in a different sector and expressed confidence in a smooth transition to Dhushenthen as interim CFO.
