The group, who also runs popular Bitcoin casino Bitcasino.io, announced the new hire through an official press release saying that hiring Walsh was a decision that would take the company to new heights.

Coingaming’s main business is providing a white-label Bitcoin platform that operators can use as a turn-key solution to setting up their own Bitcoin casino.

A Gaming Veteran

In an official statement, Coingaming CEO Tim Heath said that he was excited to welcome Walsh to the team since the company needed a “world-class” team of executives that could sustain the rapid development the Coingaming Group has been achieving. He adds that Welsh’s experience will be crucial in taking Coingaming to “the next level”, as he is a veteran who has already worked in one of the most successful companies in the gaming industry.

Walsh, who had a number or roles in William Hill, the most recent being in charge of operations control, also issued a statement saying that he couldn’t “resist” the new challenge of working at one of the most “exciting and innovative” brands in the gaming industry after working for over 20 years in William Hill. He likewise says that Coingaming are expanding extremely quickly and that he will work hard to make sure that their growth rate continues sustainably.

Richard Walsh is the third hire of executives from the traditional gaming sector that Coingaming have made so far.
