Andrew Clucas to Become Microgaming CEO
Microgaming, the leading iGaming content supplier, has announced that John Coleman is to step down as the company CEO at the end of this year and that he will be replaced by Andrew Clucas, the current Chief Operating Officer.
Coleman has been CEO at Microgaming since June 2018, before which he was Chief Financial Officer for close to fourteen years. When he assumed the role, he replaced long-serving CEO Roger Raatgever.
I am honoured to have led Microgaming as CEO – such an incredible business and people. After 17 years at the company, this is a natural time for me personally to embark on the next adventure. Microgaming has a strong leadership structure in place and an exciting future ahead, and I am delighted to announce Andrew Clucas as my successor. Andy is a brilliant colleague, friend and leader, and I have every confidence that he will steer Microgaming to new success.
Clucas has been at Microgaming since 2009. He joined the company after a career in the Royal Air Force and he has since held a number of roles in business development and sales. He was promoted to Chief Operating Officer in January 2018.
Speaking about Coleman and his appointment, Clucas said that Colman was “an outstanding leader and ambassador” for close to twenty years who could not be praised “highly enough for his many achievements and contributions.”
Clucas added, “I am delighted to be picking up the mantle from him; being appointed CEO of Microgaming is an incredible honour, and I intend to lead the business with the very same passion and commitment.”
