Industry games and content provider Yggdrasil Gaming has moved to bolster its senior management team by conforming the appointment of Andrew Pegler as Chief Commercial Officer for its Gibraltar division, along with the promotion of Krzysztof Opałka to Chief Product Officer (CPO).

Entering a new year, Yggdrasil has strengthened its strategic commercial operations by appointing Pegler a 12-year industry veteran to lead business opportunities and key account management for its Gibraltar operations.

Pegler’s appointment coincides with Krzysztof Opałka being promoted to the position of chief product officer, having previously been responsible for building the technology, processes and leading the multi-disciplinary team behind Yggdrasil’s award-winning games.

Commenting on the changes to its senior management team, Fredrik Elmqvist, Chief Executive at Yggdrasil Gaming, said: “On behalf of everyone here at Yggdrasil Gaming I would like to welcome Andrew to the team and congratulate Krzysztof on his well-deserved promotion.

“As we continue to grow the business it is vital that we have the brightest minds and experienced hands on board, and Andrew and Krzysztof certainly meet those requirements. They will both play a key role in the future direction of the business.”

The appointment of Pegler is the latest hire in Yggdrasil’s ongoing recruitment drive which has seen the company double in size over the past 12 months to almost 100 members.
