Microgaming has announced that it has appointed Stephen Fisk as CEO, who will take over the role from Andrew Clucas with immediate effect.
On his appointment, Fisk said: “I am thrilled to be made Chief Executive Officer of Microgaming, one of the most established, trusted and successful organisations in the global online gambling industry.
“Our technology is cutting edge, our experience second to none and we absolutely have the best team in the business.
“This provides a strong foundation from which we can continue to drive forwards and achieve even greater things for Microgaming and our customers.”
Prior to his CEO role, Fisk was COO for Apricot Investments, where he was responsible for overseeing the operations of platform systems and services within Microgaming.
Fisk continued: “Andrew’s strong strategic steer has been crucial to the company’s ongoing success, and I thank him for his invaluable contributions.
“He has embedded a culture of change, all the while maintaining a sense of unity and integrity at Microgaming – which I intend to carry forward."
Fisk originally joined Microgaming in 2016 as the Director of Sportsbook, with positions in both Rational Group and Pokerstars before this.
Clucas commented: “It has been an honour to have worked at Microgaming over the past 14 years and especially in recent years with the organisation having opened the next chapter of its incredible story.
“I have had the privilege of working closely with Stephen and there really is no more qualified candidate for the job than him.
“I leave Microgaming in very good hands and have no doubt that Stephen and the team will go on to achieve great things."
