Speaking about the new position, Pärt said: “Today marks a new chapter at Coingaming and it’s a chapter that in comparison to our beginnings, looks incredibly different.
“We now have more pioneering projects, partnerships and possibilities than ever before but still, our core mission to disrupt and innovate remains unchanged.
“As I step up into the role, I’m determined to drive us to new heights, to ensure that we’ll always keep pushing boundaries and also retain our fun, fast and fair way of doing things.”
Anita Brinke has been appointed the COO, having previously served as Coingaming Group ‘s Head of VIP and Customer Support. The group celebrated its rapid development across the company and will be charged with ‘monitoring Coingaming’s operations’ ascension and outreach.
Brinke said: “I’m thrilled to be able to take on such a position within the business. Working together with Tim, Maarja and the wider Coingaming Group there’s a sense that everything is possible and as I take on the COO role, I’ll endeavour to keep that spirit alive, ensuring that operationally we’ll also continue to go from strength to strength.”
Tim Heath, co-founder and CEO of the Group, will extend its remit to broaden the scope of the Group through its venture capital arm, Yolo Investments, which manages an early-stage portfolio of 44 investments, hard to find projects in the fintech and gaming verticals.
Heath added: “This is one of the proudest moments of Coingaming for me. As we get to see how much the Group has grown, as part of our next growth chapter we will be actively focussing on building and expanding the investment arm to further bolster the Group’s global remit.
“We are very excited to extend our focus into banking and disruptive crypto opportunities, alongside our existing gaming and fintech assets; the future looks very exciting. One immediate benefit of these changes is that we’ll be able to work with our the Sportsbet.io and Bitcasino.io brands, spearheaded by our newly appointed CEO, as investments alongside the other 44 the Group has made to date.”
