BetGames has chosen Ian Catchick as its new chief product and business development officer, a move the company believes would help it achieve its “ambitious goals.”
Catchick comes after directing product development and consultation in his most recent post in the gaming industry, and has over 20 years of expertise in the industry. He will work alongside Vytautas Kacerauskas, who will remain as vice president of product development and innovation.
Andreas Koeberl, BetGames CEO said: “We are delighted to welcome aboard Ian, his experience and knowledge represent a huge asset, allowing us to diversify our portfolio and strengthen our growth plans going forward.
“We are looking forward to working with him and utilising his know-how in the development of multi-channel and digital strategies as we continue to create the unique gaming experiences we’re renowned for and beyond.
“I especially want to thank Vytautas for his incredible efforts as interim CPO in the last months, and I’m more than happy that he will continue as one of our creative masterminds.”
Extensive understanding of global markets
Having worked in the UK, Austria, Greece, Cyprus, Ireland, Belgium, and Spain, Catchick is said to have a “extensive understanding of global markets” that will “be a crucial part of the company’s ongoing expansion plans.”
He began his career at the Camelot Group, a UK lottery operator, and has held director positions with Gala Coral, Ladbrokes, and Playtech, as well as being the former chief product officer of OPAP.
He has a broad spectrum of experience in both B2B and B2C across a variety of sports betting, casino, bingo, and lottery products as a result of these employment.
Catchick added: “I’m excited to join BetGames and embark on a new challenge in my career. I‘m looking forward to getting started and supporting the company’s impressive success that it has achieved globally.
“BetGames is an award-winning brand that excels in bringing one-of-a-kind entertainment products to the industry and that’s just the kind of platform that offers great potential for me to spearhead its ambitious plans.”
