Andrew Clucas to become Microgaming CEO as Coleman resigns
Microgaming’s CEO, John Coleman, resigned on December 31, 2021, with Andrew Clucus, the company’s current COO, taking over.
Coleman was named CEO in June 2018 after operating as CFO for more than 14 years. He was known for developing the company’s long-term strategy, Diversified product portfolio, and worldwide market role. Microgaming has praised Coleman’s company supervision, which has placed “employee wellbeing, responsible gambling, and corporate social responsibility” at the center of making decisions.
“I am honored to have managed Microgaming as CEO – such a fantastic company and team. After 17 years at the firm, it’s appropriate for me to move on to the next experience. I am thrilled to introduce Andrew Clucas as the new CEO. Microgaming has a solid management framework in place and a bright, promising prospect. Andy is a fantastic teammate, companion, and director, and I am certain that he will drive Microgaming to further heights of prosperity.”
Clucas entered the organization in 2019 following working as a wing commander in the Royal Air Force for nearly 18 years. Prior to getting selected COO in January 2018, he worked in a variety of managerial sections of the organization, such as corporate growth and profit.
Clucas went on to say:
“John has been an amazing director and representative of the firm for almost 20 years, and I cannot commend him strongly enough for his numerous successes and services. I am thrilled to be taking over the mantle from him – being named CEO of Microgaming is an amazing honor, and I want to run the firm with the same enthusiasm and devotion.”
Clucas came on board as a senior manager of corporate affairs in March 2009 and has since handled responsibilities such as head of poker, head of regulation, head of business development and sales, director of Quickfire and land-based, and perhaps most notably COO.
