As the company prepares itself for further US expansion, White Hat Gaming has bolstered its leadership team with the appointment of Ed Bullock to the position of Chief Operating Officer and Chris Hipkiss to Chief Delivery Officer.
Effective immediately, Bullock’s wide-ranging role as COO will see him driving the efficiency and efficacy of all operations within the business, helping White Hat to grow in new markets and strike up relationships with fresh clients.
Having worked with the company for five years, joining from bet365 in 2017, he brings a huge experience to the position, with a total of 25 years in technical roles under his belt.
Meanwhile, reflecting the critical importance of delivery to the business, Chris Hipkiss takes on the role of CDO, having held the position of Head of Product & Delivery at White Hat Gaming for over two years.
Phil Gelvan, CEO at White Hat Gaming, says: “We are certainly taking some bold strategic steps in a bid to continue the aggressive growth we have been enjoying in the US, and these appointments are very much part of that plan. I believe that Ed and Chris are exactly the people to afford us the agility and precision in our operational and delivery capabilities to achieve this growth.”
Ed Bullock adds: “It has been a wild ride working with White Hat Gaming, especially since we rolled out in the US. There is a huge amount of potential to build upon now and I can’t wait to sink my teeth into the job during this exciting time.”
And Chris Hipkiss says: “As the business has grown so quickly in recent times, it has become clear that effective delivery is going to be key to our continued success. I am looking forward to strengthening our abilities in that arena further so we can continue to expand at pace.”
The appointments follow White Hat’s recent announcement that it has gone live in Kansas, on the day the state first opened for business, marking the 13th state the platform has rolled out in.
