Microgaming taps Fisk as CEO

| By Zak Thomas-Akoo
Former chief operating officer Stephen Fisk is to take over as Microgaming’s new chief executive officer from Andrew Clucas with “immediate effect”.

Fisk first joined Microgaming in October 2016 as director of sportsbook, where he was responsible for developing and growing the company’s sport betting offering.

The former PokerStars director of operations left Microgaming in 2018 to join Apricot Investments as chief operating officer, where Microgaming said he continued “to work closely with the Microgaming team to enhance its platform systems and services”.

Due to his previous experience with the company, Microgaming said that Fisk is familiar with the company’s products, customers, businesses and people and was therefore “well equipped” to lead the organisation.

Prior to working at the casino provider, Fisk held a number of senior positions within several global gaming brands through his 24-year career.

Microgaming said that following Fisk’s appointment, the business is ready to take “further strides” with its platform systems and services, sports betting software and licensing and regulatory compliance.

New strategic direction

Fisk said he was “thrilled” with his new role.

“Our technology is cutting edge, our experience second to none and we absolutely have the best team in the business,” said Fisk. “This provides a strong foundation from which we can continue to drive forwards and achieve even greater things for Microgaming and our customers.

“Andrew’s strong strategic steer has been crucial to the company’s ongoing success, and I thank him for his invaluable contributions. He has embedded a culture of change, all the while maintaining a sense of unity and integrity at Microgaming – which I intend to carry forward.”

Microgaming said that Clucas would take on new opportunities in the industry.  

“It has been an honour to have worked at Microgaming over the past 14 years and especially in recent years with the organisation having opened the next chapter of its incredible story,” said Clucas.  

“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.”
