Playbook Engineering has enhanced its executive team with the appointment of Jonathan Chilton as Chief Operating Officer.

Chilton brings over 19 years of experience with him to Playbook, having previously worked for GM Gaming Limited, part of the Betway/Super Group family, for the past six years in various positions including CEO/COO, Operations Director and Executive Director. 

He has also worked in South Africa, working in a variety of roles over 12 years at Johannesburg-based company Osiris Trading.

Commenting on his appointment, Chilton said: “I am delighted to join Playbook at such a critical point in their journey and am very excited about contributing to the company’s strategy and ambition to take their platform global.

“I have inherited an amazing team from my predecessor and hope to build on its success and potential, but also looking at maturing regulated markets such as in the US or Ontario, which can be difficult markets to penetrate but ultimately very valuable.”

Chilton is one of several hires for Playbook over the past couple of months, including the appointment of Luke Cousins as Commercial Director back in July.

As COO, Chilton will provide his knowledge of operational and strategic management, governance and compliance as Playbook continues to expand across the globe.
