Andy Whitworth has been named Chief Executive Officer of White Hat Studios, as the group voices confidence in achieving its “ambitious targets” moving forward, having most recently served as Chief Commercial Officer at White Hat Gaming and bringing more than 19 years of experience in the gaming sector, including C-level and director roles at NetEnt, Entain, and SG Digital.
As the anticipated White Hat Studios go-live date approaches, the division has also made a number of high-level changes to the existing team and has welcomed several new starters, including Armen Tatarevic, who will be leading the account management team in the US.
Andy Whitworth, CEO of White Hat Studios, said: “Our goal is to become one of the top game suppliers in the US market, bringing not only high-quality content, but also high-quality service to our customers.
We have been going at an unprecedented speed, so it was important for us to follow up by carefully selecting the right people and build an industry-leading team at White Hat Studios.
“Combined with an exceptional portfolio of games, including our very own Jackpot Royale mechanic, which will inject life into the current online jackpot offering, as well as massive brands like Ted, Deal or No Deal and many more, we are very confident to hit our ambitious targets and shake up the market.”
Launched in 2021, White Hat Studios was created via the acquisition of an RGS, brand and gaming catalogue from Blueprint Gaming, one of Europe’s biggest iCasino content providers. For the first time, leading content from Blueprint, Reel Time, Merkur and Lucksome Studios will be offered by White Hat Studios to players in the US market.
