FSB brings in Rob Wheeler as business development director23rd January 2020 11:18 am GMT
London-based iGaming platform provider FSB has appointed experienced executive Rob Wheeler as business development director with immediate effect.
Wheeler joins FSB from New York-listed Inspired Entertainment, where he was commercial director for the supplier’s interactive division. He has also previously held senior positions at Playtech, IGT Interactive and Virtue Fusion.
In his new role leading FSB’s sales team, he will be tasked with driving the company’s existing and new business across regulated and emerging markets.
Following the recent appointment of new finance chief Andrew Bowen, Wheeler’s arrival coincides with the company’s planned expansion after receiving funding from Toronto-based private equity firm Clairvest last year.
“I’m delighted to have Rob in place as we continue to attract some of the best industry talent and scale up both our senior team and the business overall,” said FSB chief executive David McDowell. “The combination of Rob’s experience working for some of the biggest providers in gaming and his commercial knowledge over more than 15 years is second-to-none.
“This will prove invaluable as we enter one of the most exciting phases of the company’s development. I’m very much looking forward to working with him and the team as we have big plans for 2020 and beyond.”
Commenting on his appointment Wheeler said: “I’m delighted to have joined FSB at such an exciting time. All the key ingredients are in place including a fantastic sportsbook and casino product offering, the flexibility to provide bespoke solutions in line with specific operator requirements, and a great team to deliver on our promises.
“The timing is right to exponentially grow our customer base across both emerging and regulated markets. We are led by a top-quality management team and now have the investment in place to scale.”
