Former bwin.party digital entertainment exec to steer the ship
Andreas Meinrad, former bwin.party digital entertainment group commercial director, has been appointed chief executive officer of BetVictor succeeding outgoing incumbent Michael Carlton from February 1, 2015.
Meinrad will report to Michael Tabor, a founding shareholder of the company and now owner of the business following a restructuring earlier this year.
“It is a great brand with a very good reputation among its users and with a fantastic opportunity for growth in the future given the investment and strategic vision of the owner,” Meinrad said. “I am sure that my experience in the sector as well as outside of the industry, coupled with my passion for sports and betting, will help us fulfill the untapped potential of the business.”
“Since acquiring BetVictor in May, we have been looking for a world class executive to lead the business,” Tabor added. “Andreas is an outstanding operator with a proven track record of success who will bring a wealth of global brand experience to BetVictor.”
