White Hat Gaming has confirmed the appointment of Ed Bullock as Chief Operating Officer and Chris Hipkiss to Chief Delivery Officer as it seeks to solidify and strengthen its senior management.
Both internal promotions, the appointments come at a time when White Hat is embarking on a geographic growth journey, entering 13 US states to deliver its igaming titles.
Phil Gelvan, CEO at White Hat Gaming, said: “We’re certainly taking some bold strategic steps in a bid to continue the aggressive growth we’ve been enjoying in the US and these appointments are very much part of that plan.
“I believe that Ed and Chris are exactly the people to afford us the agility and precision in our operational and delivery capabilities to achieve this growth.”
In his role as COO, Bullock will be charged with leading the efficiency and efficacy of all corporate operations whilst overseeing the growth in new markets and onboarding new clients.
