Deluxe Appoints Neil Davidson as CFO
Neil Davidson, a finance executive with extensive planning, analytical and transactional experience in the digital entertainment sector, has joined Deluxe Entertainment Services Group Inc. as chief financial officer.“We’re absolutely delighted that Neil is joining the Deluxe team,” said David Kassler, who was appointed chief executive officer of Deluxe in November 2014. “His track record as a CFO is extremely impressive. He brings major operational strengths and significant experience in both M&A and balance sheet optimization.
