The Rank Group Plc (‘Rank’) has announced that Andrew Peat will join the company as Managing Director, Rank Interactive, taking up his role later this year.
Andrew joins from William Hill where he is currently the Sportsbook Director, a role he has performed since joining the company in November 2018. Prior to joining the betting and gaming industry he was the Commercial Director at Dixons Carphone Group and the Commercial Propositions Director at tech start-up firm, Ctrlio.
Andrew will be based in Gibraltar and will be responsible for the development and execution of Rank’s UK facing digital strategy.
He will report into Jon Martin who is taking up his role as Chief Operating Officer later this Summer.
Jon Martin said: “Securing an operator of Andrew’s calibre is great news for Rank. His experience in sports and gaming, along with his track record in delivering cross channel improvements at one of the biggest sportsbook brands in the UK bodes well for the important job he will soon be undertaking in Gibraltar. Rank Interactive has enjoyed significant growth recently and Andrew’s appointment will look to capitalise on the momentum we have in the business. I look forward to welcoming him when he joins us later this year.”
Andrew Peat said: “The chance to join Rank at such a pivotal time for the digital business was too good an opportunity to turn down. The potential to build on the good work of recent years is huge, powered by Rank’s own proprietary technology and a first-class team of engaged colleagues in the Interactive team. My ambition to deliver an exceptional cross-channel experience for Rank customers in both gaming and sports is clearly shared by the team and I am looking forward to getting started.”
