People News

Jackpotjoy appointed Irina Cornides as the new chief executive of its largest division, which homes the company’s Jackpotjoy, Starspins and Botemania brands.

The company, which claims to be the largest online bingo-led operator in the world, said Cornides will head up the Jackpotjoy division that currently holds a 22% market share in the UK. The unit was acquired from the Gamesys Group in April 2015 on an earn-out basis, and currently operates on proprietary software owned by Gamesys.

Cornides will act as the primary point of contact and a management intermediary between Jackpotjoy and Gamesys. Cornides will report directly to the Chief Executive of the PLC company, Andrew McIver.

“Irina will be tasked with maintaining the existing strong relationship between the two parties, along with helping to set the strategic direction for the Jackpotjoy division and overseeing the running of the brands after the earn-outs conclude,” said the company.

Most recently, Cornides was the chief revenue officer of Intertain’ Bahamas, which is the holding company for Jackpotjoy’s operating assets, where she was responsible for harnessing synergies across the company’s P&L divisions and creating strategies to drive growth.
