Bede Gaming has appointed Alex Butcher, a founder of the company, as its new managing director.
Butcher, previously chief technology officer at the business, assumes control of the leadership team at Bede and will oversee the firm’s ongoing development and growth plans.
The move comes after co-founders Michael Brady and Dan Smyth opted to take on more strategic roles at board level following the sale of Intellectual Property & Software Ltd and Rocket X.
“Bede’s initial growth phase, where we built the team into a 160 strong workforce and conducted the largest migration in the history of the industry, has provided a firm foundation for growth,” Butcher said.
“Our products and team are tried and tested, forging great potential for expansion into new markets.
“My primary concern will be to ensure we preserve the fantastic culture that lies at the heart of what makes Bede unique.”
Co-founder Brady added: “We’re absolutely delighted that Alex has accepted this position; his laser-like focus and experience in the industry make him the ideal person for the role.
“We are confident that he will lead Bede into its next stage of growth with clarity and integrity.”
