David Johnson appointed as ReelPlay CEO
ReelPlay has announced the recruitment of David Johnson for the vacant role of CEO.
Johnson has spent quite some time working for the likes of NYX Gaming Group (which later became SG Digital), NextGen Gaming and Cryptologic. He first joined the online gaming studio, which is based in Sydney, as CCO.
He joined the studio back in 2018 with Scott Smith, the former CEO whose role Johnson will be assuming. Smith will keep working for the company as a supervisor for the ReelPlay group studios in a board and advisory capacity. The company has seen many improvements and advancements since these two joined it, after they caused the business to go from Chance Interactive to ReelPlay, as well as recently achieving many crucial milestones on a commercial level.
The studio, where the original Infinity Reels dwells, has a new partnership with SG Digital for the distribution of its games across different regulated jurisdictions in Michigan and New Jersey. The company has not stopped providing helpful services to its partner studios including marketing, game development and building, integration and commercial facilities.
David Johnson stated:
I’m delighted to be given the opportunity to continue to drive the business forward as CEO. With great credit to Scott, the founders and the team at ReelPlay HQ, the business is perfectly positioned to capitalise on the solid foundations we’ve placed over the last couple of years. We look forward to continuing to build on ReelPlay’s solid existing partnerships while focusing on expanding into new markets and verticals… underpinned by the continued creation of the highest quality digital gaming content for license to the world’s leading regulated casino operators.
