Mr Green poaches ex-Paddy Power Betfair DirectorMonday, Jul 3, 2017 11:50
With great power comes great responsibility
Bonello is being given the position of Chief Operating Officer, a role with a huge amount of responsibility especially in a growing company such as Mr Green. Since the vacancy was such an important one the job needed to be filled by someone who has knowledge and experience in the field and one quick look at Mr Bonello’s portfolio of work would do a lot to confirm that he fulfilled these criteria extremely well.
It’s no surprise that a smart company like Mr Green would have their ear to the ground and are ready to snap up exciting business talent such as Mr Bonello when they become available in the industry. After all, these companies make their money and their name on being on the right side of right decisions when they offer odds and so have to have a good internal culture of decision making.
The company also seems to be building up its resources and making a few management changes as it faces an expansion into more of Europe and so the appointment of an industry veteran such as Bonello is more than likely an extension of this extension plan that will come to fruition over the coming months and years.
The appointment was welcomed by new Chief Executive Jesper Kӓrrbrink who said “I’m very happy to have Antoine on board. He has the perfect profile for a Chief Operating Role at Mr Green and he also has the perfect personality to fit in at Mr Green. We are on a journey with a strong focus on growing by offering our customers the most entertaining gaming experience possible and doing this in a safe and responsible environment. Key to success with this is operational experience, hard work and the ability to think outside the box.”
These kind words no doubt reflect the overall mood and attitude towards the appointment at Mr Green and are a good omen for a positive working relationship for the company to have with their new Chief Operating Officer Antoine Bonello.
This positivity can also be seen quite clearly in the statement made by the man himself on the appointment. Mirroring the sentiment of his new colleague Bonello said “I’m excited to be joining Mr Green at such a pivotal stage. The business has a sound strategy in place and is delivering effectively against this plan. I’m looking forward to bolstering the current growth by enabling the delivery of an entertainment-led customer experience with a focus on efficient execution and scaling up profitably.”
With all of this talk of customer focused expansion one would be forgiven for feeling somewhat excited to see what exactly Mr Green has in store for us the customer as they continue to grow and develop their services. The appointment of Anthony Bonello to Mr Green is a clear signal that they are ready determined to make big decisions and take risks to further enhance their product in new ways which is something that is commendable, to say the least.
