A recent statement published by one of the big online gaming companies, Bede Gaming Limited, stated that some changes took place within the company and that they have appointed a new Managing Director – Alex Butcher. Butcher will oversee and lead the future development projects of the company and be one of the main decision-makers there.
In their official press release, there is info on previous positions taken by Alex Butcher. He worked as a Chief Technology Officer for a long time and has a lot of experience when it comes to executive positions. Furthermore, the release claims that there is a proven record of Butcher working with the scaling software businesses and pays close attention to open-culture cultivation as one of the ways to drive innovation.
Bede Gaming was established in 2012 and they needed to quickly choose their new leading person as the co-founders of the project wanted to focus on some other “more strategic” roles which were driven by the fact that LeoVegas AB acquired the Intellectual Property and Software Limited, as well as the firm for marketing services, Rocket 9 Limited.
One of the former CEOs of the company, Michael Brady, stated that Butcher has to focus mainly on the security of the software and to help everyone to adhere to the principles of responsible gambling. He said that the responsible gambling principles should be present in every aspect of the company, including its technology, values, and culture.
Brady published a statement in which he claims to be very delighted for Alex to accept the leading position. Brady added that Butcher has a great experience in the industry, as well as the “laser-like” focus, which makes him the great person for the role that was offered to him. He also claimed that they were looking forward to establishing a closer cooperation with him and to make sure that Bede Gaming Limited lives up to a “global transformation”.
Butcher added that Bede Gaming was already an established company and that he had a firm basis to work with. The company has 160 sixty employees and was involved in one of the biggest migrations in the recent history of the industry.
Butcher stated that the Bede Gaming products and the team are all very well tested and they had a huge potential for entering new markets and expanding their scope. He also added that his primary goal was to preserve the great culture which he believes is the essence for the company’s success.
