NeoGames has appointed Robert Wesley to the position of Vice President of North American Customer Development.
Wesley, who joined NeoGames on August 1, boasts over a quarter of a century of lottery industry experience and will be charged with helping onboard new customers interested in growing their ilottery offerings while assisting and supporting NeoGames’ existing customer base with best practices.
Moti Malul, Chief Executive Officer of NeoGames, said: “Rob is hugely respected within the lottery industry and has an incredible track record of delivering ilottery growth during his time with Virginia Lottery.
“As we have consistently demonstrated, our ilottery offering is the industry leader and we want the right people to drive our efforts as we look to accelerate our customers’ success. Rob joining NeoGames is a major coup and sharing his expertise with our customers will undoubtedly help to effectively grow their businesses.”
Wesley joins NeoGames after a long and successful career with the Virginia Lottery, where he spent 25 years. Rising through the ranks of the state lotto, Wesley’s tenure culminated in a promotion to Deputy Executive Director of Lottery.
During his time on the executive team, the Virginia Lottery’s overall sales grew by 23% in the most recently completed fiscal year. The ilottery program was one of the top-performing schemes in the US in its first three years post-launch.
Wesley commented on his appointment: “It is a thrill to join NeoGames and work with such an impressive portfolio of lottery partners. The North American ilottery market is one that continues to grow rapidly and NeoGames is in a prime position to support lotteries who are interested in enhancing the interactive experience they offer.
