White Hat Gaming has announced a significant expansion of its leadership team, as the igaming platform confirms the appointment of Rob Fell and Andy Whitworth as senior executives.
The expanded senior management team is reflective of the company’s transformative growth as it strives to become “one of the world’s leading online gaming platforms and player account management solutions”.
Fell and Whitworth will reprise their same C-level roles most recently held at NetEnt, subsequently being named chief operating officer and chief commercial officer, respectively.
The duo have worked together for the last five years, first at GVC Holdings, which is now known as Entain, and then at NetEnt where they are lauded as having “transformed the company’s fortunes through implementation of strategic growth initiatives and product innovation”.
Lauded as playing a key role in the acquisition of Red Tiger, and subsequent sale to Evolution, the pair also boast experience from the likes of SG Gaming, Paddy Power and Tattersalls.
Whitworth commented: “We have a clear goal of delivering gaming perfection to our partners and customers, and our goal as always will be the best and biggest disruptor. I am particularly excited to work with our established key partners in the US and EU to leverage the many available opportunities.”
Fell added: “White Hat Gaming is already highly successful. We believe by implementing best practices and delivering innovative products we can rapidly grow White Hat Gaming further”.
The board of directors decided to bolster the senior management team after the company significantly expanded business interests in 2020 to include the United States, where White Hat’s PAM now powers the Penn/Barstool product online.
The board explained in a statement: “Their breadth of experience, combined with leadership qualities and a shared vision, give us complete confidence that appointing Rob Fell and Andy Whitworth will elevate the company to the next phase of our exciting journey.”
