888 Names Anna Barsby as Chief Product and Technology Officer
888 Holdings, the online sports betting and gaming entertainment operator, has announced the appointment of Anna Barsby to the position of Chief Product and Technology Officer (CPTO).
Before joining 888 Barsby held the post of Chief Information Officer (CIO) and joins the gaming operator from Tessiant management consultancy, a company she co-founded.
Following the takeover of William Hill by 888, Barsby’s main role will be to integrate the two companies. Barsby is expected to help to rationalize the operation of the business, in particular, the technology of the two gaming operators.

We are delighted to welcome Anna to our new executive leadership team, where she will play a pivotal role in driving forward the key area of technology integration as part of our transformational combination with William Hill. Her significant experience and expertise will be invaluable as we seek to unlock the significant potential of our two highly complementary businesses, and we very much look forward to working with her.
