Wednesday June 26,2013 : OH APPOINTED TO DEVELOP BINGO FOR ONLINE DATING FIRM
 
Global Personals Ltd says same demographic utilises online dating as online gaming
 
European online dating firm Global Personals Ltd has appointed Pil-Jeong Oh as Head of Gaming, part of company’s expansion strategy into online gaming.
 
Oh joins the company from a seven-year tenure at News International where he led their online bingo offerings Sun and Fabulous Bingo.
 
As Head of Gaming, he will be responsible for Global Personals’s online gaming strategy, closely working with the company’s UX and Innovation teams to develop and grow the gaming arm of the business.
 
He will initially focus on the growth of SmoochBingo.co.uk which was launched last year to complement the company’s freemium dating brand, Smooch.com.
 
Ross Williams, chief executive officer of Global Personals believes online dating and gaming have similar demographics providing opportunity to utilise the company's resources into another burgeoning market which will grow alongside the rest of Global Personals' business.
 
The company is currently recruiting a number of roles for the gaming and development teams.
