The restructuring project will have Yolo Ventures invest extra capital to help the growth of the Hub88 content platform. The final purpose of Hub88 is to be able to offer all partners international banking services, through open banking functionality via FCA-regulated Aims Financial, a Yolo Investments invested asset.
Lewis, former CCO of Pariplay, will take the role of CEO of the Bombay Group and she will focus her attention on Hub88, on the high-roller live casino products Bombay Club, and the mobile-focused games studio OneTouch.
Maarja Pärt, Yolo Group CEO, said: “We’re putting into place a world-class team to take our B2B gaming businesses to the next level, and Christine is a vital part of it. Her experience at some of the biggest names in our industry stands her apart, and she’s exactly the type of disruptive thinker we welcome at the Yolo Group. It’s great to have her on board.”
Lewis added: “I’ve watched the remarkable growth of Yolo Group over the past few years with interest. Hub88, OneTouch and more recently the Bombay Club live studio are changing the game with new approaches to old challenges. It’s a real honour to join the team.”
Jose Micallef has also joined as COO for Yolo Ventures and will use his iGaming background to overlook the current studios, and future studio projects along with Head of Live Studios, James Corrie.
Yolo Group has recently announced a major rebrand aiming to better reflect its status across a diverse range of sectors, including gaming and fintech.
