St John co-founded the business alongside Brian Reid in 2002 and led both the technical and product teams for the majority of his time as CEO. He will continue in a product role, overseeing 1X2’s content production and innovation.
Reid takes up the position of CEO having served as chief commercial officer of 1X2 Network since joining the business in November 2012.
He will take on responsibility for the overall management of 1X2 Network and its 1X2Gaming and Iron Dog Studio subsidiaries, as well as lead the direction and strategy as the business seeks to expand into new markets in the next year.
“I would like to thank Sean for his incredible contribution to the business and for making 1X2 Network into the leading content provider and aggregator that it is today,” Reid said,
“His shoes are certainly big ones to fill, but I believe we have phenomenal momentum behind the business, and I look forward to leading 1X2 Network into the next chapter of its success story.”
St John said it had been an honour to serve as CEO of the supplier for 20 years, a period in which it had grown from a small studio into a top-tier provider.
“The time is now right from me to step down from the role of CEO and I look to the future knowing that the business is great hands with Kevin stepping into the top job,” he said.
“I am delighted to continue assisting the company during such an exciting period of growth and have full confidence that we have the right team in place to maintain and extend our current progress.”
