Bwin.party Digital Entertainment (Pwin) is playing an elaborate game of switcheroo with its employees. Chris Welch was on the receiving end, as he became Pwin’s new poker director after being the “P” CMO since March this year and part of the “P” since 2009. The appointment comes as Pwin looks to be closing in on a number of strategic partnerships to operate in the USA. This though is from a company that’s now worth less than when “P” and “win” were uncombined and saw earnings fall by 21%. Current share price: 109.60p. Down 1.17% compared with yesterday. That’s you off Norbert and Jim’s Xmas list, Chris.
Sportingbet is on the job hunt and whilst foraging, they’ve managed to lay their hands on a new non-executive director. Chris Moss joins the firm immediately and was most recently a marketing director for Virgin Atlantic. He is also CEO of his own consultancy firm, Famoss. Sportingbet has most recently been in the news thanks to their animosity to Turkeys. Moss would be well advised not to reveal that he’s a big Christmas and Thanksgiving fan. If he does then he’d better profess his love for a nut roast over meat.
…urrm…actually it was Turkey the country. Scrub all that.
Football sponsorship junkie’s 188BET is getting into yet another football-related bed after signing an agreement with Snack Media. It will see a number of football-related prize giveaways launched on the media firm’s Football Fancast site that is home to a number of bloggers. 188BET made headlines by sponsoring two Premier League clubs concurrently until Wigan decided it was time to call off their regular swingers meeting with Bolton and 188BET.
