BetGames.TV, the leading live dealer betting games supplier, has hired Andreas Köberl as its new CEO in order to facilitate the company’s next level of growth.

Köberl joins from Playtech Sports, where he started out as Commercial Director and then went onto head up the Trinity Bet Group, operating the Germany and Austria-facing sportsbook brand HPYBET.

Holding several degrees in both engineering and business, including a PhD in high-tech marketing, the Austrian will bring over 12 years of expertise from various positions involved in managing complex software products, including from within the aerospace industry and at Microsoft.

Andreas Köberl, CEO at BetGames.TV, said: “I have had the opportunity to learn from several B2B industry leaders over the past decade, and my recent experience building up a B2C operator in a highly-competitive market will serve me well as I look forward to this exciting challenge at BetGames.TV.

“I am grateful for the trust that has been placed in me. Vygerdas and the team have built an incredible and unique company and culture which I plan to grow to new heights in the coming years.”

Founder of BetGames.TV, Vygerdas Jonikas, will now focus on product innovation as he moves to Chief Product Officer, following the in-house mantra that ‘uniqueness knows no bounds’.

Vygerdas Jonikas, CPO at BetGames.TV, said: “It has been a very pleasant journey, from a crazy idea to today, a successful company, where we have filled the betting market with a constant calendar of table games, lotteries and other inventive live content.

“I strongly believe that everybody should do what they are best at. For me, this means generating new product ideas and driving innovation, and I’m thrilled to have a superbly-qualified candidate in Andreas coming into the CEO role, where his experience and hunger for new challenges fits perfectly.”

After starting out as an affiliate in 2009 and developing some recognized review portals, I have moved deeper into journalism and media. My experience has lead me to move into the B2B sector and write about compliance updates and report around the happenings of the online and land based gaming sector.
