Nektan PLC (LON:NKTN), an international B2B and white label gaming software and services provider, has strengthened its expanding operations by appointing a new Chief Operating Officer for both its White Label and B2B divisions.
Jane Ryan now heads up Nektan’s B2B unit with Michael Byrne appointed to lead its White label business.
Byrne joins from Microgaming, where he held the position of Regional Business Manager and played a key role in setting up a new Malta hub for the company’s gaming platform Quickfire. He was previously Chief Commercial Officer and Senior Director at IGT for its Interactive division, and led William Hill’s mobile division during a four-year spell with the Operator.
As an internal promotion, Ryan has a proven track record developing and driving Nektan’s thriving B2B international arm. She successfully spearheaded Nektan’s launch in Asia through a global platform agreement with Tyche Digital for its Evolve Lite gaming platform, making Nektan one of the only iGaming platform providers to have presence in Europe, the US and Asia.
Gary Shaw, CEO at Nektan said: “We’re thrilled to announce our latest senior appointments. They are two highly capable individuals who will no doubt apply their wealth of industry experience and commercial acumen to grow our B2B and White Label businesses.
“Jane has performed exceptionally well for Nektan, helping to drive our global B2B operations forward, while Michael will bring a fresh perspective to White Label with his industry experience in senior roles.”
