US mobile technology provider Joingo has made a number of changes to its executive management team following the completion of a strategic review and financing round.

The management changes see chief financial officer Michael McManus promoted to chief executive officer, replacing the company’s co-founder Steve Boyle who has taken over as chief technology officer and vice chairman.

Joingo said that McManus will lead the company’s efforts to facilitate the growth and expansion of its product offerings, which include mobile loyalty and engagement solutions for land-based casinos.

Vice president of sales Kirk Olson has also been promoted, taking on the chief operating officer role, while Joingo co-founder and vice president of business development Alex Kanwetz has assumed the vice chairmanship of the board of directors.

Olson will continue to lead the company’s sales efforts, which the company noted had resulted in the addition of more than 50 new casino customers over the past year. In addition, Olson will take over responsibilities for operations including product implementation and customer support.   

"At Joingo, we pride ourselves on being nimble and responsive to the needs of the market and our customers," said McManus. "We are at an exciting time with mobile technology increasingly in demand within the casino gaming industry, and with these changes we look to be in an excellent position to drive even more growth.
“I believe we have a stellar team in place and we will continue to exceed the expectations of our current and future customers. I look forward to leading the company into 2018 and beyond."

The management changes were announced alongside the closing of a Series D financing round, for an undisclosed amount, which the company said would secure its long-term growth plans.

The funds will be used to expand the company’s sales team, customer support and implementation capabilities.

“Joingo has experienced significant growth over the past two years, and we are poised to remain the leader in mobile loyalty solutions for the gaming industry moving forward,” Olson said. “With other software vendors interfacing their products with the Joingo Mobile Platform, we are seeing continued adoption and growth.”
