Newly established online slot developer RAW iGaming has strengthened its senior management team with the appointment of Ricardo Ruiz as chief technology officer and Henrik Fagerlund as chief operating officer.

Ruiz joins RAW from Videoslots, where he served as CTO with responsibility for the operator's technical growth, and will report to CEO Tom Wood.

"I am super passionate about technology, gaming and product innovation and with RAW I get all my boxes checked," said Ruiz. "It’s such a great time to jump on board, with so much achieved already but still with everything in front of us. I look forward to building new technology, culture and a new team that’s going to disrupt the industry in the most spectacular way.”

Henrik Fagerlund joins as RAW COO from Evolution, where he served as managing director Malta for NetEnt and director of product innovation for Evolution. He will now focus on driving RAW's operations, including strategy, product development and sales.

“I truly love the iGaming industry for being so dynamic and ever changing but the one thing I feel is missing is true innovation,” said Fagerlund. “When I met Tom and he showed me the SuperSlice concept and the other stuff he is cooking up I felt like real innovation was here and something I wanted to be a part of. Tom explained this is what RAW is about, shaking things up, innovating, and truly avoiding the sea of sameness.

“That hit the target for me and it’s an absolute honour to join RAW. Here I can bring all my experience, passion and energy to the table and help make a difference.”

Commenting on the appointments, Wood said: “Adding Ricardo and Henrik further establishes RAW’s focus on excellence and quality. Ricardo will ensure the technical security and viability of our platforms while Henrik will bring to bear his incredible wealth of knowledge in iGaming and will ensure our teams deliver to the quality levels and innovation which RAW will be known for. I feel so honoured they have chosen RAW, and both together will ensure stability during RAW’s quick expansion.”
