Gavin Hamilton assumes Chairman role at Octoplay

Octoplay has appointed former Red Tiger CEO, Gavin Hamilton, as Chairman, subject to regulatory approval.

Hamilton brings a wealth of industry experience to Octoplay, marking his return to the B2B sector since departing Evolution following their acquisition of NetEnt, which in turn bought Red Tiger in 2019.

Having held key roles, which also include COO of NetEnt and Commercial Director at Evolution, Hamilton joins some of his former colleagues at Octoplay to contribute to the rapid growth of one of the sector’s key challenger brands.

Carl Ejlertsson, CEO, says: “As we embark on a transformative journey in 2024, Octoplay is poised for a pivotal year. Gavin’s invaluable experience in navigating the intricacies of scaling a business into diverse regulated markets will undoubtedly expedite our development.”

Gavin Hamilton adds: “I am thrilled to be joining Octoplay as Chairman. I am impressed by what they have achieved in such a short period and am excited to be part of the delivery of the strategy going forward.

“For Octoplay to have already secured partnerships with most of the world’s largest operators is a significant endorsement of their commitment to product excellence and innovation.”
