Andreas Köberl, CEO of BetGames.TV.

BetGames.TV has appointed Andreas Köberl as chief executive officer, as the live dealer betting games supplier aims to position itself for its next level of growth.

Coming off the back of numerous distribution deals inked in recent weeks and months targeting multiple global jurisdictions, Köberl joins the firm from Playtech Sports.

At the group he started out as commercial director, before moving on to head up the Trinity Bet Group and operating the Germany and Austria-facing sportsbook brand HPYBET.

Holding several degrees in both engineering and business, including a PhD in high-tech marketing, the Austrian will bring over 12 years of expertise from various positions involved in managing complex software products, including from within the aerospace industry and at Microsoft.

Köberl said of the new role: “I have had the opportunity to learn from several B2B industry leaders over the past decade, and my recent experience building up a B2C operator in a highly-competitive market will serve me well as I look forward to this exciting challenge at BetGames.TV.

“I am grateful for the trust that has been placed in me. Vygerdas and the team have built an incredible and unique company and culture which I plan to grow to new heights in the coming years.”

As a result of the recruitment, Vygerdas Jonikas, founder of BetGames.TV, will transition to focus on product innovation as he moves into the CPO position.

Jonikas commented: “It has been a very pleasant journey, from a crazy idea to today, a successful company, where we have filled the betting market with a constant calendar of table games, lotteries and other inventive live content.

“I strongly believe that everybody should do what they are best at. For me, this means generating new product ideas and driving innovation, and I’m thrilled to have a superbly-qualified candidate in Andreas coming into the CEO role, where his experience and hunger for new challenges fits perfectly.”
