Former Betfair IT Guru Appointed Bettorlogic CTO23rd October 2009 7:29 am GMT
Bettorlogic, the form analyst company backed by Andrew Black and Nigel Payne, has announced the appointment of former Betfair executive Steve High as the company's new Chief Technology Officer.
Mr High has been responsible for some of Betfair's most innovative and revolutionary features during his seven years with the online betting exchange company.
High was among Betfair's first 70 employees and played a significant role in the success of the company. In addition to a major contribution to the core Betfair platform itself, High led the development projects for Betfair's Multiples, SP and API products.
In his new role, High will lead Bettorlogic's fast-growing development team, and will initially focus on planned additions to Bettorlogic's current Form Lab bet stimulation and Trader Lab ranges. He will also begin the development of a significant new innovation, scheduled to launch in spring 2010.
"The word 'genius' is bandied around a bit too much these days, but in Steve's case it really isn't an over-claim," said Mike Falconer, CEO of Bettorlogic. "He's designed and developed some of the most groundbreaking betting products ever seen and his enthusiasm to build more is inspiring. This is a major coup for Bettorlogic"
Commenting on his appointment, Steve High said: "I've had a tremendous time at Betfair over the past seven years and it fills me with immense pride to see how successful some of the products I've developed have become.
"I'm still absolutely passionate about new betting technologies, so applying what I've learnt now within Bettorlogic is a fantastic new opportunity. Their product range is already top class and together we can do some great things."
