Tornado Games has appointed Julia Weygandt as its COO. Weygandt has decades of experience in the global gambling industry.
She began working with the German land-based company, the Gauselmann Group, in 2005 as an apprentice before moving up to the position of Executive Assistant. She next moved to the Schmidt Gruppe before joining Gamomat in the online industry, where she attained the position of Head of International Partnerships.
She was Head of Business Development at Red Rhino before joining Tornado Games.
As COO, Weygandt's job is to build out the staff, create growth strategies and plans, evaluate and improve internal procedures and steer the business into new territories to take the studio from startup to rising star.
Thaluana Muscat, Head of Sales at Tornado Games, said: “Julia brings a wealth of experience, passion and vision to the team and we are thrilled to have her on board. Tornado Games is the new kid on the block, but we have ambitious plans to make our mark on the sector by developing games that players want to play.”
Weygandt said: “I am so excited to join Tornado Games and to be working alongside such an incredible team. The studio is already blazing a trail, but the best is yet to come, and I’m honoured to be playing a part in plotting the journey we will take from start-up to reaching our ultimate goal of being a major player in the slot provision space."
