Gaming company Nektan has appointed a new chief operating officer for both its white-label and B2B divisions, with Michael Byrne and Jane Ryan taking on the roles respectively.

Byrne joins from Microgaming, where he held the position of regional business manager and took a lead role in establishing a new Malta hub for the company’s Quickfire gaming platform.

Prior to that, he was chief commercial officer and senior director at IGT Interactive and also led William Hill’s mobile division for four years.

Ryan is promoted internally with a track record in growing Nektan’s B2B international arm and having led Nektan’s successful launch in Asia through a global platform agreement with Tyche Digital for its Evolve Lite gaming platform.

Gary ShawCEO at Nektan said: “They are two highly capable individuals who will no doubt apply their wealth of industry experience and commercial acumen to grow our B2B and white-label businesses.

“Jane has performed exceptionally well for Nektan, helping to drive our global B2B operations forward, while Michael will bring a fresh perspective to white label with his industry experience in senior roles.”
