The group noted that the appointment comes as it continues to strengthen its senior leadership team, with Aiyadurai bringing more than 28 years of experience across software engineering roles. This includes 21 years with Derivco, part of the Microgaming Group that is now Games Global.

In his new role, Aiyadurai will oversee the research and development department at the studio, along with continuing to develop and expand the provider’s IT infrastructure to enable production demand. Moreover, he will be responsible for overseeing market planning and trends.

“We are delighted to welcome Yoganand to the growing team here at Wizard Games,” said Wizard Games Managing Director Joey Hurtado. “We’re continuing to go from strength to strength, and someone of his calibre will allow us to scale new heights.

“We’re always striving to hire the best talent to join our team, and this reaffirms our commitment to excellence, which can be found at every layer of our business.”

The appointment marks the latest hire by the supplier, with Simon Jagdhar joining the group as Director of Game Studio in November 2022.

Aiyadurai commented: “I’m thrilled to be joining Wizard Games as it continues to make huge leaps in the industry. With a fantastic roadmap of content, and countless new partnerships on the horizon, it is an exciting time to be joining the team, and I look forward to helping us take the next step.”

In other appointment news this week, Mickey Sonnino has been named as the new Global COO of PlayStudios.
