Three Appointments in Major Companies

Top executives find new positions

This week, three major online gambling companies announced new appointments of top executives, who are to bring about innovations, prosperity and responsible handling of the companies' affairs.

The first announcement came from Betfair, which has appointed Peter Marcus to the position of UK Director. He will take over in October, and his responsibilities will include managing and overseeing the company's UK-facing business, including the sports exchange, poker and casino products.

At the moment, Marcus is known as the owner of consulting firm Rock Consulting and the group chief strategy officer at Betclic Everest Group. Prior to this, Marcus held the position of chief operating officer for William Hill Online, where he supervised all operations at the joint venture between William Hill and Playtech, but also management positions with Cryptologic Inc and the Fortune Lounge Group.

As a comment on his appointment this week, Marcus said: "Betfair has been the leader and chief innovator in the betting sector for many years, and as the industry continues to change and progress, so Betfair needs to continue to evolve and offer the customer what they want. The UK is the heart and soul of global sports betting and I want Betfair to continue to benefit from its market leadership position in this country."

In addition, Niall Wass, chief commercial officer at Betfair, stated: "Peter brings with him a combination of industry experience and an understanding of what makes online businesses tick. He is a natural fit for Betfair and I look forward to working with him to develop our core UK business in an increasingly exciting online marketplace."

The other of the aforementioned appointments took place at the online gambling giant, Digital Entertainment. There, the chief marketing officer for poker, Chris Welch, has been named director of poker operations for the group.

Welch has been with Party Gaming since 2009, before which he was a part of the management of the Aussie gambling group Centrebet.

Last but not the least comes Sportingbet which has appointed Chris Moss as a replacement to Sean O'Connor, where he will act as a non-executive member of the board of directors.

Previously, Moss worked as marketing director for Virgin Atlantic airlines, and he was also involved in the launch of the cell phone brand Orange.
