British bingo operator Buzz Bingo has appointed Dominic Mansour as Chief Operating Officer for its Digital business.
With a wealth of experience in gaming, Mr. Mansour joins Buzz from Bragg Gaming where he was CEO. Prior to that he was Senior Vice President for South Europe at PokerStars and Managing Director at Full Tilt.
He joins Buzz Bingo in mid-January and will lead the Buzz Digital team on the next part of its growth. Since launching in September 2018, Buzzbingo.com is now an established online platform, providing one of the UK’s leading omni-channel gaming experiences with customer protection at its heart.
Mr. Mansour said: “When the opportunity to work with Chris Matthews and his team presented itself it was an absolute ‘no-brainer’ for me. We operate in a highly competitive, fast-moving sector but one in which Buzz’s omni-channel opportunity gives something unique. I know after more than 20 years in this industry, all over the world, we have the ingredients to really succeed and grow.
“I’m really looking forward to bringing my experience to Buzz and to work together to drive the business onto the next stage.”
Chris Matthews, CEO added: “Dominic coming on-board with his exceptional sector and leadership experience will be crucial in driving the next phase of digital growth for Buzz. Working collaboratively across the business, he will be key to delivering our strategy to deliver a real differentiated, customer-focused product.”
In a further Leadership team change, Stevie Shaves (currently Chief Digital Officer), will move into the role of Chief Commercial Officer, replacing Jamie Queen who leaves Buzz at the end of January. Mr. Shaves will head up Bingo, Slots and Food and Beverage product development as well as Partnerships, Procurement and driving Buzz’s omni-channel strategy.
Mr. Matthews added: “Stevie has done an incredible job taking Buzzbingo.com from an idea to one of the UK’s leading online brands in just over two years. I am excited about what Stevie can deliver for us in his new commercial group role. I would also like to thank Jamie for his hard work and considerable achievements and wish him luck in his new ventures.”
