888 CEO Accepts Chairman Role

14th May 2015

We see a fair amount of industry press crop up in the world of online gaming and gambling – but what does it actually mean to us as players?

More often than not when a new appointment are made / replaced in private companies where the company often relies on stakeholder investment, the product is improved. The investment could also be in marketing efforts to increase the amount of players to the site.

Sensible and more accomplished operators like 888 Casino know that to keep the influx of new players, they need to ensure that the product is worth the players while. Over the years 888 have really fine tuned all of their product verticals, from sports betting to bingo, and also more importantly for us their casino.

Brian Mattingley may have stepped down from his role of 888 CEO, however he will be assuming the role of executive chairman within the organisation. This move as it seems was organised some time ago, as sources can confirm that this was on the cards since after the 2015 AGM. So now Mattingley will replace Richard Kilsby, who previously held the executive chairman role for nine years.

Mattingley was quoted by iGamingBusiness as saying:

“Richard has shown outstanding leadership during his nine-year tenure as chairman, which has seen 888 grow and develop significantly,

“I would like to extend my personal thanks for Richard’s unwavering dedication and counsel during my time as chief executive of 888.”
