Former Entain Director Mark McGinley has been named as Chief Executive Officer of FunFair Games, in a move that will see COO Lloyd Purser pivot to focus upon the group’s venture capital business.
In the role, McGinley will be charged with scaling the entity further still, as well as enhancing its product roadmap in a bid to accelerate its games output and global distribution.
McGinley previously worked as Entain’s Director of Game Studios where he managed the company’s internal game production. He has also held senior roles at RNG Foundry, Casumo and Odobo.
McGinley said: “I’m proud to have been made the CEO of such an innovative and exciting company as FunFair Games, and I’m looking forward to helping the business expand and strengthen its foothold in the igaming industry.
“The multiplayer vertical has garnered a lot of attention lately, with many realising how prosperous this area can be, and FunFair Games aims to be at the forefront of this exciting space in the industry.”
As part of the announcement, Purser, will take a step back to focus on FunFair Technologies’ venture capital business, FunFair Ventures.
“Everyone at FunFair Games is thrilled to have Mark on board as his experience and contacts across the industry will be invaluable to the business,” Purser explained
“In our journey so far we’ve proved that the market is ripe for a new style of game. The next stage of that journey is to up the ante and make our games an absolute must have for operators looking to drive new revenue streams with a more diverse portfolio.
“Mark is exactly what we need to take FunFair Games to the next level and we’re extremely excited to have him as our new CEO.”
