Tekkorp Capital launch advisory firm with ex-William Hill Online chief as partner
Tekkorp Capital, the investment vehicle set up by gaming entrepreneur Matt Davey, has announced that it is adding a new advisory arm. Tekkorp Capital will now provide strategic advice to the fast-growing global igaming, digital sports betting, and Web 3.0 ecosystems.
Tekkorp Capital has a powerful track record of investing in fast-growing and innovative companies, both public and private, and adding advisory services to businesses where the partners can make a material difference is the logical next step.Tekkorp Capital’s recruitment drive is headlined by Crispin Nieboer, the former CEO of William Hill’s online gaming business and Group Director of Global M&A.
While leading Corporate Development for William Hill, Nieboer helped deliver a string of deals in the US including the $2.9bn sale of William Hill PLC to Caesars Entertainment, and the pending $3bn sale of William Hill’s non-US business to 888 Holdings.
Crispin Nieboer commented: “The opportunity to join up with such an impressive group of people at Tekkorp Capital does not come along very often. As a team, we have advised or executed on over $24bn of deals in the digital gambling sector to date. All of us have held CEO, MD or CFO roles at major digital operators, as well as having distinguished M&A backgrounds. This knowledge of what works from an operator standpoint in M&A is the real key difference between Tekkorp Capital and other advisory firms in our industry.”
