The Coingaming Group, which operates popular bitcoin betting brands including BitCasino.io and Sportsbet.io, has appointed ex-William Hill executive Richard Walsh as its new managing director.

Walsh spent more than 20 years at William Hill in a variety of senior management positions, and has relocated to the Coingaming Group’s headquarters in Tallinn, Estonia.

He will oversee operations for the entire group, which includes a soon-to-launch eSports-focused brand, reporting directly to CEO Tim Heath.

He becomes the third major industry appointment for the group, hot on the heels of Christopher Uren’s appointment as Director of Sportsbook and Dominic Bourke as Director of Casino.

Tim Heath, CEO of the Coingaming Group, said: “I am absolutely thrilled to welcome Richard to the Coingaming team.

“We have grown as a company extremely quickly, so it is critically important that we put a world-class executive team in place to ensure this development can be sustained.

“Richard is an industry veteran who has worked for one of the most successful brands in gaming. His experience will be vital in taking Coingaming to the next level.”

Richard Walsh, Managing Director of the Coingaming Group, added: “After more than two decades at William Hill, I could not resist a new challenge at one of gaming’s most exciting and innovative companies.

“The Coingaming group is growing rapidly and I will endeavour to ensure that this growth continues in a sustainable way.”
