Live dealer betting games supplier BetGames.TV has poised itself for the ‘next level of growth’ after confirming the appointment of Andreas Köberl as its new Chief Executive Officer.
Köberl joins the firm from Playtech Sports where he started out as Commercial Director before leading the Trinity Bet Group, operating the Germany and Austria-facing sportsbook brand HPYBET.
Celebrating his new role, Köberl said: “I have had the opportunity to learn from several B2B industry leaders over the past decade, and my recent experience building up a B2C operator in a highly-competitive market will serve me well as I look forward to this exciting challenge at BetGames.TV.
“I am grateful for the trust that has been placed in me. Vygerdas and the team have built an incredible and unique company and culture which I plan to grow to new heights in the coming years.”
BetGames.TV lauded Köberl’s wealth of experience in both engineering and business sectors, having also served in various positions which have overseen the management of complex software products.
As a result of the recruitment, Vygerdas Jonikas, founder of BetGames.TV, will transition to focus on product innovation as he moves into the CPO position.
Jonikas added: “It has been a very pleasant journey, from a crazy idea to today, a successful company, where we have filled the betting market with a constant calendar of table games, lotteries and other inventive live content.
“I strongly believe that everybody should do what they are best at. For me, this means generating new product ideas and driving innovation, and I’m thrilled to have a superbly-qualified candidate in Andreas coming into the CEO role, where his experience and hunger for new challenges fits perfectly.”
