Phillip Wilson has been recruited as chief operating officer of growing igaming startup Carousel Group, as the company gets set to undergo a significant expansion via the launch of a duo of new sportsbook brands.
The ex-Winners Group and Gala Coral senior executive is lauded as coming with “a proven track record of delivering growth and success,” and is to be charged with playing a critical role in ensuring that the Carousel Group achieves operational excellence in every area, with the customer at its core.
Daniel Graetzer, Carousel Group CEO, explained: “I am delighted to welcome Phillip to the team. His experience at developing and implementing strategies that drive rapid growth and deliver sustainable success will significantly benefit Carousel Group.
“Following the launch of our new affiliate programme and public announcement of our recently acquired sports betting brands, it is an exciting and critical time for the business, and I am thrilled that Phillip will play a significant role in the direction we take in the coming months and years.”
During a four year stint at Denmark-based Winners Group, Wilson was chiefly responsible for developing and implementing a strategic plan to transform the business from “a small B2C brand into a B2B power player”.
Furthermore, during three years as head of product at Gala Coral, he is praised as making “a significant contribution” to “rapid progress” across mobile and tablet.
Wilson said of his new position: “Joining Carousel Group at such a critical time in our journey is a unique opportunity within the igaming sector – we have an enviable mix of talent, great brands, a solid funding base, and an innovative in-house platform to allow us to reshape what it means to be an operator in this sector.
“We are gathering knowledge and expertise from inside and outside of the industry, to bring the lessons of excellent customer experiences and live up to our motto of being the ‘new kids on the block’.”
