BetGames.TV, one of the fastest-growing providers of live casino games, has hired a new chief executive officer to help them move the company forward. The person they have chosen is Andreas Köberl, a former employee of Playtech, one of the biggest companies in the iGaming industry.
Köberl was in charge of Playtech Sports, where he started out as commercial director before taking charge of the Trinity Bet Group, which operates Hpybet, a sportsbook brand that is focused mainly on the German and Austrian markets.
The new BetGames.tv CEO holds several degrees in engineering and business, along with a PhD in high-tech marketing. He has been managing the development and implementation of complex software products for the past 12 years, including a stint with Microsoft.
Company Founder to Focus on Product Innovation
BetGames’ founder, Vygerdas Jonikas, decided to step down from his position as chief executive in order to channel his efforts into making the company’s products better. With Köberl’s arrival, Jonikas will become the company’s product chief.
Commenting on his appointment, Andreas Köberl said: “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.”
Vygerdas Jonikas, the founder of Betgames.tv, added: “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.”
