Now leading FSB’s sales team, Wheeler joins from Inspired where he held the role of commercial director for its interactive division. As well as this, he also has experience from his time working with Playtech, IGT Interactive and Virtue Fusion.

Discussing his appointment, Wheeler stated: “I’m delighted to have joined FSB at such an exciting time. All the key ingredients are in place including a fantastic sportsbook and casino product offering, the flexibility to provide bespoke solutions in line with specific operator requirements, and a great team to deliver on our promises.

“The timing is right to exponentially grow our customer base across both emerging and regulated markets. We are led by a top-quality management team and now have the investment in place to scale.”

Aside from leading the sales team, Wheeler will also be responsible for driving FSB’s, who are a Sunday Times Tech Track 100 listed company, existing and new business across regulated and emerging markets. 

David McDowell, CEO at FSB, added: “I’m delighted to have Rob in place as we continue to attract some of the best industry talent and scale up both our senior team and the business overall.

“The combination of Rob’s experience working for some of the biggest providers in gaming and his commercial knowledge over more than 15 years is second-to-none. 

“This will prove invaluable as we enter one of the most exciting phases of the company’s development. I’m very much looking forward to working with him and the team as we have big plans for 2020 and beyond.”

Wheeler is now the latest appointment at FSB and follows on from the announcement that saw Andrew Bowen take up the role of chief financial officer.

Although no dates or names are yet to be released, the company is expected to announce further senior appointments in due course.
