The UK online bingo software provider Virtue Fusion has appointed ex-Wagerworks sales exec Rob Wheeler as its Sale Manager, bringing 18 years of experience to the post.
Wheeler was previously with London-based online casino software developer WagerWorks where he was instrumental in winning a significant amount of new business that included customers such as Gala Coral Group and Ladbrokes.
With 18 years of experience in business-to-business sales, the last five spent in the gaming industry, Wheeler is well suited to the job. Before joining WagerWorks, he served as the Regional Sales Manager for land-based casino gaming software provider Octavian International Limited.
Wheeler said he was looking forward to the fresh challenges of a new management position. “Virtue Fusion has an excellent product offering reflected in its blue-chip client base, which includes big names such as Mecca, Ladbrokes, William Hill and Bet 365," he said. "In many ways, Virtue Fusion has been one of the best-kept secrets in online bingo, quietly winning top-tier customers with its industry-leading offering without having to worry about standard marketing initiatives. However, we are now ready to take it to next level so get ready to hear some noise.”
Al Haig-Thomas, Managing Director for Virtue Fusion said the company was pleased to bring Wheeler aboard. "He brings with him a wealth of experience and knowledge of our marketplace and a proven track record in winning new business”.
