Gavin HamiltonOctoplay, the cutting-edge online casino slots development company, proudly announces the appointment of Gavin Hamilton as Chairman, subject to regulatory approval.

Hamilton, formerly the CEO of Red Tiger, brings a wealth of industry experience to Octoplay, marking his return to the B2B sector since departing from Evolution following their acquisition of Netent, which in turn bought Red Tiger in 2019.

Having held key roles including CEO at Red Tiger, COO of Net Ent and Commercial Director at Evolution, Hamilton joins forces with some of his former colleagues at Octoplay to contribute to the rapid growth of one of the sector’s key challenger brands.

His appointment is strategically aligned with Octoplay’s ambitious plans to make a significant impact in the US market.

Carl Ejlertsson, CEO, expressed his enthusiasm for the role, stating: “As we embark on a transformative journey in 2024, Octoplay is poised for a pivotal year. Gavin’s invaluable experience in navigating the intricacies of scaling a business into diverse regulated markets will undoubtedly expedite our development.”

Commenting on his appointment, Hamilton said: “I am thrilled to be joining Octoplay as Chairman. I am impressed by what they have achieved in such a short period and am excited to be part of the delivery of the strategy going forward.”

In a market where establishing a new supplier presents unprecedented challenges, Hamilton emphasises the critical importance of a relentless focus on product and innovation.

He commends Octoplay for embodying this principle, stating: “For Octoplay to have already secured partnerships with most of the world’s largest operators is a significant endorsement of their commitment to product excellence and innovation.”

As Octoplay looks forward to an exciting future, Hamilton’s strategic guidance is poised to play a crucial role in driving the company’s success.
