Writing on LinkedIn, Keating said: “Having spent the best part of the last four years commuting between the UK and the Nordics I have recently had to make a hard (but also easy) decision to be back in the UK on a more permanent basis for family reasons. 

“I’ve absolutely loved my time at Play and the incredible growth we have achieved in a short period is remarkable. Great people, great brand, and a great organisation that I am sure will thrive for years to come, and I am delighted to have been a part of it.

“Time now to spend the next couple of months with the family and think about what’s next later. One thing is for sure… just like Arnie, I will be back.”
