Webis said Roberts has extensive experience in the online sports entertainment industry, having spent time as a director of Sportech PLC, and successfully helped in building sports betting platform FaceOff in the US.
Roberts stood down from his role of president of digital for the US at Sportech in 2016, also resigning from the company’s board. He is currently a director of Webis’ Watchandwager.com brand, as well as of skill-based real-money game developer Papaya Gaming.
“I am delighted to welcome Rich to the board of Webis,” said the company’s managing director, Ed Comins.
“His experience in the gaming industry will prove invaluable, and we are sure he will make a very positive contribution to the board.”
