FSB ‘delighted’ with Rob Wheeler appointment

Rob Wheeler has been appointed the new business development director of gaming platform provider FSB as the company looks to continue bolstering both its global footprint and its senior team. 

Having garnered experience from his time at Playtech, IGT Interactive, Virtue Fusion and most recently as commercial director of Inspired’s interactive division, Wheeler is now set to take the lead of FSB’s sales team. 

David McDowell, CEO at FSB, discussed Wheelers appointment, stating: “I’m delighted to have Rob in place as we continue to attract some of the best industry talent and scale up both our senior team and the business overall.

“The combination of Rob’s experience working for some of the biggest providers in gaming and his commercial knowledge over more than 15 years is second-to-none. 

“This will prove invaluable as we enter one of the most exciting phases of the company’s development. I’m very much looking forward to working with him and the team as we have big plans for 2020 and beyond.”

Aside from his responsibilities with regard to the sales team, Wheeler will also be responsible for driving FSB’s, who are a Sunday Times Tech Track 100 listed company, existing and new business across regulated and emerging markets. 

Wheeler added: “I’m delighted to have joined FSB at such an exciting time. All the key ingredients are in place including a fantastic sportsbook and casino product offering, the flexibility to provide bespoke solutions in line with specific operator requirements, and a great team to deliver on our promises.

“The timing is right to exponentially grow our customer base across both emerging and regulated markets. We are led by a top-quality management team and now have the investment in place to scale.”

With Andrew Bowen having recently taken up the role of chief financial officer, Wheeler now becomes the latest appointment at FSB, with the company expected to make further additions to its senior team in due course.
