In her new position, Karran will play a major role in bringing Eminence products to market, using her both experience as a gaming operator and understanding of the igaming industry to support the supplier.
Karran joins Eminence having most recently served as managing director of The Knowledge Baker, an igaming-focused consultancy, prior to which she was COO at Creative Web 3D.
She also had a five-year spell as director and designated money laundering reporting officer at Red Tiger Gaming, as well as spending almost eight years as head of operations and COO of Xela Holdings.
Karan’s other roles include serving as a director at the TGP Group and also as egaming development manager for the Isle of Man Government.
“I’ve always enjoyed the pace of early stage businesses and I look forward to using my experience in this field to support Eminence to scale quickly,” Karran said. “I’m thrilled to be joining the team at this crucial time and look forward to helping to make their ambitious plans a reality.”
The appointment comes after Eminence this week also announced Mark Robson as its new chief executive. Robson previously worked for Microgaming SHFL Entertainment, Champion Sports and King Gaming.
“I’m delighted to welcome Lisa to the senior management team, her broad experience and skills are going to be invaluable to us in meeting our ambitious growth targets,” Robson said.
