Gibraltar-licensed developer Realistic Games has bolstered its commercial team with the appointment of former International Game Technology (IGT) product manager Robert Lee, who will work alongside the supplier’s commercial director Andy Harris.

Lee joins the company after two years as bingo product manager for IGT, and will work alongside Harris to grow the supplier’s customer base.

He has previously worked with Harris during a stint at Ladbrokes, where he held a number of roles over a five-year period.

Having served four years as retail development manager for gaming machines at Gala Coral, Lee joined Ladbrokes in January 2009 as product manager for games, before taking on similar roles as product manager for bingo and then casino during his five-year stint with the company. He joined IGT in January 2014.

“Robert has an excellent and broad product knowledge and totally understands client management having worked as an operator and supplier across a wide range of products, in both land-based and online environments,” Harris said. “I’ve no doubt he’ll add great value to our expanding team and that our existing clients and those taking our content and services in the future will benefit from his industry experience.”

The supplier has grown rapidly over the past few years, signing deals to supply its content to leading operators such as bet365, BetVictor, Ladbrokes, Gala Coral, Boylesports, Stan James, Paddy Power, Rank Interactive and Gaming Realms.
