RPM Gaming names Ian Hogg as chairman7th May 2020 8:58 am GMT
London-based betting and gaming supplier RPM Gaming has appointed Ian Hogg as its new chairman.
Hogg brings over 20 years’ betting and gaming experience to RPM Gaming, having previously served as chief operating officer of Sportech and chairman of Fox Poker Club. He also co-founded UK retail betting operator Better prior to its merger with Jennings, and currently serves as CEO of payment provider fastPAYE.
The appointment reunites Hogg with Better co-founder Richard Thorp, who co-founded RPM Gaming and serves as a director.
“This role was always going to be a perfect fit for Ian, so I’m delighted he’s joined us on our new venture at RPM Gaming,” said Thorp. “His eclectic, cross-channel gaming background speaks to our three distinct areas of expertise, whether it’s retail sports betting solutions, online and land-based casino, or delivering the latest data feeds for bespoke pricing on sports such as cricket.
“So, whichever your chosen domain of discourse, we ensure each project is fully mapped and all parties know their specific roles and responsibilities. Ian’s trusted reputation for clarity and clear thinking neatly complements our mission statement.”
Commenting on his appointment, Hogg said: “I’ve always based my business relationships on the ability to add value, whether I was at a start-up or a public company. And the RPM Gaming proposition articulates a simple-yet-exciting opportunity: bringing superior products to regions that have traditionally been poorly served by suppliers to date.
“While many are distracted by new dawns in the US, we intend to marshal our efforts in less fashionable countries where an agile mover can strike quickly and effectively. Rich and his partners have already assembled a connected global network that allows us to focus on high-yield, sustainable streams, replacing legacy systems and driving revenues for our partners across growth markets. RPM Gaming has a strong grasp of the space and I can’t wait to get started as chairman.”
