The company has announced that its current chief financial officer (CFO), Jennifer Barber, intends to step down from her role. The C-suite change is effective a month from now, starting from December 1, 2023.

Details on why Barber decided to step down from her role with NorthStar were scarce. Still, the company confirmed that once she steps down from her CFO role, she plans to pursue “another opportunity.” To fill in the vacant role, NorthStar confirmed it selected Chin Dhushenthen, one of its senior-level executives with extensive experience.

As interim CFO, Dhushenthen brings more than 25 years of executive-level experience within a wide range of verticals, including finance, risk management, technology and compliance. He initially joined NorthStar back in 2021 and since then played a key role in the development of the company’s financial reporting processes, as well as important functions related to regulatory reporting and compliance, among other strategic processes.

Outside of NorthStar, Dhushenthen held important senior-level roles with The Hunter Group, Azerty United Canada, as well as Hydrogenics Corporation. Before joining NorthStar Gaming, he was a part of the largest publicly traded provider of quality rental housing in Canada, CAPREIT. Overall, he was a part of the company for 13 years, holding important financial leadership roles.
