Previously holding the role of Senior Commercial Manager, Lee, who has been with Realistic since early 2016, has been lauded for being “ instrumental in growing both the supplier’s product and client portfolio.”

In his new guise at the Reading based firm, Lee will be responsible for directing the commercial operation as the company looks to build on its momentum heading into the new year.

“He has enjoyed a successful relationship with our operating partners to date and we’re very much looking forward to the next chapter in the Realistic story.”

With almost three decades of experience in the gaming industry, Lee’s previous roles include approximately 20 years at Gala Bingo.
