NeoGames, a technology-driven provider of end-to-end iLottery and iGaming solutions, has significantly enhanced its senior leadership team in North America, following the appointment of Robert Wesley as the company’s new Vice President of North American Customer Development effective August 1.
Wesley joins NeoGames after 25 successful years at the Virginia Lottery, where over the course of his tenure, he held a number of significant positions, with his most recent being Deputy Executive Director of Lottery. Under his leadership, Virginia’s iLottery programme became the top-performing U.S. jurisdiction in less than three years from initial launch. In addition, overall lottery sales grew by 23% in the most recently completed fiscal year.
In his new position, Wesley will draw on his many years of experience to serve as a resource to lotteries throughout North America that are interested in enhancing their interactive experience. He will also assist and support NeoGames’ existing customer base with best practices in the delivery and growth of their iLottery programmes and products.
Moti Malul, Chief Executive Officer of NeoGames, said: “Robert is hugely respected within the lottery industry and has an incredible track record of delivering iLottery growth during his time with Virginia Lottery. As we have consistently demonstrated, our iLottery offering is the industry leader and we want the right people to drive our efforts as we look to accelerate our customers’ success. Robert joining NeoGames is a major coup and sharing his expertise with our customers will undoubtedly help to grow their businesses.”
Robert Wesley, Vice President of North American Customer Development at NeoGames, said: “It is a thrill to join NeoGames and work with such an impressive portfolio of lottery partners. The North American iLottery market is one that continues to grow rapidly and NeoGames is in a prime position to support lotteries who are interested in enhancing the interactive gaming experience they offer. I am excited by the new challenges that lie ahead and look forward to sharing my expertise with the NeoGames team and our lottery partners.”
