Mfuse has signed Andrew Pegler, the former Sales Sirector of Chartwell Games, to become the new development director of mobile gaming.
In Pegler’s new role, his responsibilities will consist of: developing the commercial side of the Mfuse business, developing new business, extending and enhancing deals with existing clients and monetising the Mfuse mobile platform and technology in non-betting and gaming sectors.
With 10 years of experience in the online gambling industry under his belt, and having previously worked for Sky Interactive and Jadestone, Pegler certainly has the qualifications required to lead.
As we here at CalvinAyre.com have touted since the beginning, mobile gaming is not only the way of the future, it is here, and it’s happening right now.
Marcus Wareham, chief executive of Mfuse commented in the release, “The mobile-gaming industry is undergoing an explosive growth in popularity thanks to the latest generation of smart phones. At Mfuse, we continue to invest heavily in securing the best talent available to ensure we retain our competitive advantage,” said…I look forward to working with Andrew, whose unique industry experience will further enhance our strength and depth.”
Pegler said in the release: “It is a fantastic time to join Mfuse. The mobile betting and gaming space is growing rapidly and Mfuse continues to lead the way. I am very excited about this opportunity and am confident that I can add real value to the Mfuse business.”
The significance of this hire is that Mfuse has been looking to champion the mobile gaming market. After teaming up with Ladbrokes last summer the company didn’t make that much noise in 2011 until now. Better late, than never.
