Kevin Reid is set to take the reins at 1X2 Network, as current CEO Sean St John steps down from the role to occupy a reduced product position.

Reid, who joined the online casino content developer and aggregator in November 2012, will take on responsibility for the overall management of 1X2 Network and its 1X2gaming and Iron Dog Studio subsidiaries.

Furthermore, he will also lead the direction and strategy as the company enters a multitude of new markets in the next year. He will remain supported by the senior commercial staff.

Reid commented: “I would like to thank Sean for his incredible contribution to the business and for making 1X2 Network into the leading content provider and aggregator that it is today.

“His shoes are certainly big ones to fill, but I believe we have phenomenal momentum behind the business, and I look forward to leading 1X2 Network into the next chapter of its success story.”

St John co-founded the business alongside Brian Reid in 2002, and has overseen both technical and product teams for the vast majority of his time at the helm. 

He is lauded as leading teams in the creation of virtual sports titles, aggregation systems, and slots, such as its suite of Megaways games, and will continue in a product role where he will oversee aspects of the content production and innovation moving forward.

“It has been an honour to serve as CEO of 1X2 Network for 20 years and to watch the business grow from a small but ambitious studio into a tier one provider with several subsidiaries and portfolio of award-winning content,” he explained.

“From day one we have pursued a strategy of creating games that will engage and entertain players, and to make those games available to operators in regulated markets. It has proved to be a very successful strategy and one that I am proud to have overseen.

“The time is now right from me to step down from the role of CEO, and I look to the future knowing that the business is great hands with Kevin stepping into the top job.

“I am delighted to continue assisting the company during such an exciting period of growth, and have full confidence that we have the right team in place to maintain and extend our current progress”
