iGaming solutions giant Microgaming is preparing for a new era under the leadership of chief executive John Coleman with the appointment of Andrew Clucas as chief operating officer and Jean-Luc Ferriere as chief commercial officer.

Both have worked at Microgaming for a number of years, with Clucas having served as director of the open platform business Quickfire since September 2016. He has been with the company since 2009, holding roles including head of poker, head of regulation and business development and sales.

He has overseen a period of double-digit growth for Quickfire since taking charge of the division.

"Andrew has played a central role in our operational success since joining us in 2009, achieving consistently outstanding results in charge of sales, regulated markets, business development and other key areas of the business, including Quickfire," Microgaming CEO Coleman commented.

He is joined on the executive team by Jean-Luc Ferriere, who has been promoted from director of network games to chief commercial officer. He has been with Microgaming since 2008 and has led the development, promotion and strategy of its poker and bingo products.

"Jean-Luc has been part of our business for nearly two decades, which is a truly remarkable achievement," Coleman said. "His commercial expertise is unparalleled, and he has ensured the successful delivery of our products worldwide. I am pleased to announce his appointment as chief commercial officer."

Commenting on his new role, Ferriere said: "I am privileged to have served the business for such a long time, guiding a number of departments along the way.

"The people and culture at Microgaming are incredibly strong, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to guide our teams at the highest level."

These are the first appointments to Microgaming's executive team since Coleman was promoted from chief financial officer to chief executive in June. He stepped into the top job to replace Roger Raatgever, who has departed after 17 years to become executive chairman of Microgaming's recently-rebranded parent company Apricot Investments.
