London-based B2B gaming provider Pronet Gaming has appointed Alex Leese as its new chief executive officer.

Leese’s appointment follows the sports betting technology supplier's recent acquisition by a UK private equity firm for an undisclosed sum.

He will be responsible for leading Pronet Gaming into newly regulated markets around the world, and joins the company following a three-year stint at William Hill, where he served as director of emerging markets.

Prior to joining the UK bookmaker, Leese held various managerial roles with operators Sportingbet, GVC and Offside Gaming over a ten-year career in iGaming.

Leese will be based at Pronet Gaming’s new commercial headquarters in London with frequent travel to the supplier’s offices in Malta and Curacao.

“We are thrilled that Alex has joined Pronet Gaming as chief executive officer,” said Pronet Gaming’s new chairman Ioannis Skoulides. “This is a pivotal time for the company given our aim to achieve listed status in the future. Alex’s expertise in international gaming operations will be instrumental as we embark on expanding our global footprint whilst also optimising our product and service offering.”

Following his appointment, Leese commented: “I am delighted to be joining Pronet Gaming at such an important time for the business as it embarks on global expansion.

“Pronet Gaming already has an incredible client base of innovative and exciting operators and I look forward to ensuring they continue to receive a world class product and experience."
