Award-winning sportsbook and casino platform provider recruits highly experienced commercial executive

 

Award-winning platform provider FSB has appointed Rob Wheeler as Business Development Director to lead the company’s sales team as it continues to bolster both its senior team and rapidly grow its global footprint.

Wheeler joins FSB from Inspired where he was Commercial Director for its interactive division. He has also held senior positions at Playtech, IGT Interactive and Virtue Fusion.

He will be responsible for driving the Sunday Times Tech Track 100 listed company’s existing and new business across regulated and emerging markets. The fast-growing company achieved 13th place in the latest ranking with judges praising its market-leading software solutions that have generated a year-on-year sales rise of 175% in the past 36 months.

Wheeler joins just weeks after FSB announced new Chief Financial Officer Andrew Bowen (ACA) as it extends its scope and influence across the industry following a significant capital investment from Clairvest Group in mid-2019.

The company will announce further senior appointments in due course.

Rob Wheeler, Business Development Director, FSB, said: “I’m delighted to have joined FSB at such an exciting time. All the key ingredients are in place including a fantastic sportsbook and casino product offering, the flexibility to provide bespoke solutions in line with specific operator requirements, and a great team to deliver on our promises.

“The timing is right to exponentially grow our customer base across both emerging and regulated markets. We are led by a top-quality management team and now have the investment in place to scale.”

David McDowell, CEO at FSB, added: “I’m delighted to have Rob in place as we continue to attract some of the best industry talent and scale up both our senior team and the business overall.

“The combination of Rob’s experience working for some of the biggest providers in gaming and his commercial knowledge over more than 15 years is second-to-none. This will prove invaluable as we enter one of the most exciting phases of the company’s development. I’m very much looking forward to working with him and the team as we have big plans for 2020 and beyond.”

FSB’s proprietary gaming platform also includes over 3000 casino games, virtual sports and lottery solutions from the industry’s leading suppliers and is delivered as a fully managed service, together with powerful CMS and CRM tools to deliver the best possible customer experience
