Microgaming has confirmed the appointment of Stephen Fisk as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO), effective immediately. Fisk will be taking over the role from Andrew Clucas, who will pursue new opportunities, having chosen to end his 15-year tenure as an executive of the online casino games and software supplier.
Fisk, who first joined Microgaming in October 2016 as Director of Sportsbook, has an extensive background in the igaming sector. Prior to working at the casino provider, he held several senior positions within global gaming brands throughout his 24-year career, including the Rational Group (formerly The Stars Group Inc).
The executive left Microgaming in 2018 to join Apricot Investments as Chief Operating Officer (COO), where he continued to work closely with the Microgaming team to enhance its platform systems and services.
In a statement, Microgaming praised Fisk’s familiarity with the company’s products, customers, businesses, and people, noting that he is “well equipped” to lead the organization.
The company added that under Fisk’s leadership, it is ready to take “further strides” in its platform systems and services, sports betting software, and licensing and regulatory compliance.
Fisk expressed his excitement about his new role, stating, “Our technology is cutting edge, our experience second to none, and we absolutely have the best team in the business. This provides a strong foundation from which we can continue to drive forwards and achieve even greater things for Microgaming and our customers.”
Andrew Clucas, the outgoing CEO, spoke highly of Fisk, saying, “I have had the privilege of working closely with Stephen, and there really is no more qualified candidate for the job than him. I leave Microgaming in very good hands and have no doubt that Stephen and the team will go on to achieve great things.
Moving forward, Fisk plans to build on Clucas’s contributions, maintaining the culture of change, unity, and integrity at Microgaming while striving to achieve further success for the company and its customers.
