Industry heavyweight Jean-Luc Ferriere rallies with Fast Track

Ex-Microgaming CCO to act as ambassador for the platform

Igaming industry veteran, Jean-Luc Ferriere, is partnering with Fast Track as an ambassador for the platform.

Ferriere has over two decades of experience in igaming, most recently as chief commercial officer at Microgaming. During his time at the award-winning software supplier, he oversaw fundamental changes in business processes and the transformation of various teams across their commercial division.

Ferriere has long been a proponent of implementing new strategies and instilling purpose in teams to enable growth. His commitment to innovative solutions is evident in his notable achievements from his time at Microgaming. From creating the first order to delivery process and systems to coordinate software delivery, through the concept that would become the central customer portal for the business, to his team introducing the first network and bespoke game promotions in the industry, Ferriere’s creative thinking has undoubtedly had an impact on the igaming world.

As Fast Track carves out its position as the leader in digital transformation in igaming, Ferriere will join the business development team in evangelising the Fast Track way of working.

“My interest in Fast Track really stems from the fact I am an absolute technology nerd. I’ve known Simon [Lidzén] for a long time, and once we started talking about Fast Track, I wanted to get involved. The company is doing some really cool stuff in data, automation and digital transformation,” Ferriere said.

Simon Lidzén, co-founder and CEO is happy to have Ferriere on board: “We have always been confident in what we do as a business, and Fast Track really focuses on delivering solutions to the unique challenges of igaming,” he said. “However, it’s still always very rewarding to gain recognition, especially from someone like Jean-Luc, who has a vast knowledge of, and experience in, this industry. He is very well suited to help spread our message to operators.”

Ferriere joins the team during a time of expansion for Fast Track. In the last year the team has nearly doubled in size to accommodate accelerated growth and the company is in the midst of a new recruitment drive to support the business as it continues on this track.
