Gaming1 has announced that David Carrion will move from the role of chief marketing officer (CMO) to chief operator officer (COO) for its interactive division.

Carrion previously held the roles of CMO and marketing director at Pokerstars, as well as other positions at The Stars Group and roles at Blackstone-owned Cirsa.

In his new role Carrion will lead Gaming1’s efforts to align its technology, business and marketing departments.

“I’m proud to have been trusted as COO interactive for one of the industry’s most exciting and ambitious brands,” said Carrion. “During my time here, the company has excelled in every area and continues to see rapid growth.”

“We have bold aspirations for the future, our goal for the Gaming1 interactive business line is to outperform market growth, we are set to double our revenues within the next five years. We aim to do this based on scalability and by delivering real quality to the player.”

Gaming1 introduced mandatory responsible gambling training for all employees at the beginning of the year.

In May, Ricardo Viana was named the company’s chief creative officer after serving as creative director for Play’n Go.

“Everyone at Gaming1 is delighted to have David take on more responsibilities as the company’s new COO for Interactive,” said Sylvain Boniver, co-founder of Gaming1.

“During his time as CMO, David showed his quality and experience in delivering impressive growth strategies. We are confident that in his new role, David will excel and continue being a tremendous and valuable asset to the company and its partners.”
