Change in the gaming world is always at a constant, especially when it comes down to online casino. Casino gaming companies constantly change the way they direct their work and casino games
are also constantly changing with implementations of features, various different themes and improvements in gameplay. Sometimes change can seem quite daunting and scary, but usually it happens for the best, and this is exactly what Microgaming is hoping to achieve with the changes they have just recently implemented. Microgaming have decided to build a brand new management team to switch up the game and with the intention of bringing more growth into Microgaming.
The new management team are not completely new and fresh as they have actually worked at Microgaming for a number of years. This new era comes with great excitement for Microgaming under the leadership of the chief executive officer John Coleman. The new management team will consist of chief commercial officer Jean-Luc Ferriere, and Andrew Clucas who has been appointed as the new chief operating officer. As we mentioned, these two new additions have worked at Microgaming before since Clucas was previously a director of the open platform business Quickfire since September of 2016 taking on roles including head of poker, head of regulation and business development and sales so he is definitely very experienced. The CEO of Microgaming commented saying “Andrew has played a central role in our operational success since joining us in 2009, achieving consistently outstanding results in charge of sales, regulated markets, business development and other key areas of the business, including Quickfire”.
Jean-Luc Ferriere is also previously experienced with Microgaming working for them since 2008 leading development, promotion, and strategy for their poker and bingo products. Jean-Luc has been promoted from being the director of network games, to chief commercial officer so this must be a very exciting time for him and we couldn’t be happier for the whole team. John Coleman said a few words about the news “Jean-Luc has been part of our business for nearly two decades, which is a truly remarkable achievement his commercial expertise is unparalleled, and he has ensured the successful delivery of our products worldwide. I am pleased to announce his appointment as chief commercial officer." Jean-Luc Ferrier went on to say “I am privileged to have served the business for such a long time, guiding a number of departments along the way. The people and culture at Microgaming are incredibly strong, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to guide our teams at the highest level."
We are looking forward to finding out where Microgaming takes this new management team and seeing what sort of improvements and ideas they have up their sleeves for our UK casino sites
. From the time that Coleman was promotion from chief financial officer to chief executive officer, this is the first big change, but since the new chief operating officer and the new chief commercial officer are not exactly new to the Microgaming world we can only imagine that it will be a very smooth and successful transition and they will be able to build the company up even more than before.
