Microgaming on Monday has announced a new change in leadership.
John Coleman will be stepping down from his role as Microgaming CEO on December 31, 2021. Replacing him would be the current Microgaming COO, Andrew Clucas.
It was in June 2018 when John was appointed CEO of Microgaming, after serving as CFO for almost 14 years. As CEO, John has diversified Microgaming's product offering, driven its strategy and vision and elevated its position in the global gaming market. An open and emphatic leader, John has placed safer gambling, corporate social responsibility and employee wellbeing at the forefront of his decision making. He will still stay within the group in a non-executive role.
After a successful career in the Royal Air Force, Andrew joined Microgaming in 2009. Rising quickly through the ranks in the company, he managed various operational areas of the business, including business development and sales, before being appointed chief operating officer in January 2018.
John Coleman said, "I am honored to have led Microgaming as CEO - such an incredible business and people. After 17 years at the company, this is a natural time for me personally to embark on the next adventure. Microgaming has a strong leadership structure in place and an exciting future ahead, and I am delighted to announce Andrew Clucas as my successor. - Andy is a brilliant colleague, friend and leader, and I have every confidence that he will steer Microgaming to new success."
Andrew Clucas said, "John has been an outstanding leader and ambassador of the business for almost two decades, and I cannot praise him highly enough for his many achievements and contributions. I am delighted to be picking up the mantle from him - being appointed CEO of Microgaming is an incredible honor, and I intend to lead the business with very the same passion and commitment."
