FunFair Technologies eyes global growth with two senior appointments

Decentralised B2B blockchain casino platform FunFair Technologies has strengthened its senior team with two key hires, as the firm progresses towards the go-live date of its first operator, and expands its central London team to 50.

Joining FunFair are Lloyd Purser as senior vice president of business development, and Fred Kessler as vice president of product, as the pair are charged driving and managing commercial partnerships, and further enhancing a scaled up product road-map beyond the initial go-live.

Purser, who boasts twenty years of experience across the B2C and B2B sectors, is to “maintain FunFair’s pre-eminence within the industry, ensuring long-term value for operators and partners,” whilst also developing and executing global growth strategies.

Joining from an executive director of commercial role at Scientific Games, Purser commented: “Blockchain is set to revolutionise the gaming industry, so I’m thrilled to have joined FunFair in what is an incredibly exciting time in the company’s life-cycle.

“Our position as a key innovator in the space, coupled with the teams’ extensive experience and huge passion for the technology, made it an easy decision to come on board.

“I am very much looking forward to developing and executing on our global growth strategy, and continuing to support FunFair’s position as the market leader, as we get ever nearer to going live with our first operator partner.”

Kessler, who joins from Gamesys where he helped to deliver an extensive portfolio of over 100 titles during his time of chief product officer, added: “FunFair is the most exciting company within the blockchain casino space at the moment, utilising the latest technology and expert developers to deliver low cost, high quality, transparent casino experiences that are provably fair to all.

“I look forward to working closely with our community and partners to ensure that the platform continues to grow as a world-class casino platform.”
