Gearing up for the launch of its first igaming and online betting properties, new industry incumbent Carousel Group has confirmed the appointment of Phillip Wilson as Chief Operations Officer (COO).
A seasoned industry executive in product development and strategic execution, Wilson joins Carousel leadership from Copenhagen-based B2B lottery platform provider Winners Group APS, where he most recently served as COO/CPO (2016-2019).
In addition, Wilson holds further industry experience, having led product development divisions for Gala Coral (2012-2014), successfully launching a number of new digital verticals.
Daniel Graetzer, Carousel Group CEO, said: “I am delighted to welcome Phillip to the team. His experience in developing and implementing strategies that drive rapid growth and deliver sustainable success will significantly benefit Carousel Group.
“Following the launch of our new affiliate programme and public announcement of our recently acquired sports betting brands, it is an exciting and critical time for the business and I am thrilled that Phillip will play a significant role in the direction we take in the coming months and years.”
Entering 2019, Graetzer announced that Carousel was in final preparation, as it prepares to launch its first two online betting properties SportsBetting.com and RaceBook.com.
Phillip Wilson, Chief Operating Officer at Carousel Group, said: “Joining Carousel Group at such a critical time in our journey is a unique opportunity within the iGaming sector – we have an enviable mix of talent, great brands, a solid funding base, and an innovative in-house platform to allow us to reshape what it means to be an operator in this sector.
“We are gathering knowledge and expertise from inside and outside of the industry to bring the lessons of excellent customer experiences and live up to our motto of being the ‘new kids on the block.”
