Tornado Games drives growth objectives via Julia Weygandt hire

Julia Weygandt has been appointed as Chief Operations Officer of Tornado Games, joining the group from Red Rhino where she held the position of Head of Business Development.

In a move designed to advance the group’s “ambitious plans” to become a “major player” in the slots space, Weygandt is charged with devising effective strategies and growth plans, assessing and fine-tuning internal processes and leading the studio into new jurisdictions.

“All journeys begin with a single step but today we are taking a giant leap forward by welcoming Julia to the team as our new Chief Operations Officer,” commented Thaluana Muscat, Head of Sales at Tornado Games.

“She brings a wealth of experience, passion and vision to the team and we are thrilled to have her on board. Tornado Games is the new kid on the block, but we have ambitious plans to make our mark on the sector by developing games that players want to play. 

“That someone of Julia’s calibre wants to join the business is a testament to our vision and the progress we have already made.”

In addition to Red Rhino, Weygandt’s past experience began upon entering in the industry in 2005 after joining Gauselmann Group as an apprentice before becoming an executive assistant. 

She then moved to the Schmidt Gruppe before entering the online sector with GAMOMAT, which saw her work her way up to Head of International Partnerships.

“I am so excited to join Tornado Games and to be working alongside such an incredible team,” noted Weygandt. 

“The studio is already blazing a trail, but the best is yet to come, and I’m honoured to be playing a part in plotting the journey we will take from start-up to reaching our ultimate goal of being a major player in the slot provision space.

“Our roadmap is frankly awesome, and you’ll be hearing much more from Tornado Games over the coming months as we release new games and announce operator partnerships in markets across Europe and beyond.”
