Gambling affiliate QiH Group has boosted its corporate level structure with internal and external appointments.

David Murphy will join the company as its first Chief Marketing Officer and be tasked with heading up double-digit growth through marketing channels and commercial relationships as well as driving revenue and profit across all marketing avenues.

Murphy has spent over 25 years working in the gaming industry including spending time at Gamesys and Gala Coral Group.

“QiH Group has been making major waves in the industry in the past few years, and seeing the growth and leadership made it a really attractive next step in my career,” said Murphy. “I can’t wait to bring my expertise in the iGaming sector to QiH, helping develop and motivate a fantastic marketing team to bring this power affiliate to its goal of becoming the UK’s most widely known affiliate in online betting and gaming.” 

QiH also confirmed that it would be promoting Andrew Lee to Chief Operating Officer.

Lee, who has been with the company since its inception, will be responsible for overseeing all operational departments and revenue growth as well as managing systems and compliance strategy. 

This latest reshuffle is part of a corporate-level “improvement plan” for QiH which aims to solidify its operational capabilities. 

“As the company saw a 75% increase in both revenue and profit in FY2023 and is on track for a repeat of that this year, it’s vital that we have this level of experience to lead the team alongside me,” added QIH Group’s CEO Jamie Walters. “David’s knowledge of the betting and gaming sector and Andrew’s knowledge of QiH’s operational excellence as well as what our partners need will bring a wonderful combination to our existing team.”

Catena appoints new CFO

It has been a busy time for affiliate companies at a corporate level. 

Last week Catena Media promoted VP of Finance Michael Gerrow to the company’s new Group Financial Officer. He will succeed interim Erik Edeen who will continue with the company in a strategic advisory role. 

“We are delighted to see Michael step into the role of Group CFO,” said Catena Media Interim CEO Pierre Cadena. “His extensive experience and deep understanding of our financial operations make him exceptionally well-suited to lead our financial operations going forward.”

Earlier this year, Catena also appointed Manuel Stan as the company’s new permanent CEO following the departure of Michael Daly. Daly left the company off the back of 2023 full-year results that showed a 41% fall in revenue and share price.
