(PRESS RELEASE) — Realistic Games CEO Andy Harris has resigned from his post and will leave the supplier in the coming months.
Harris, who was promoted to the role in April 2016, tendered his resignation to the company’s directors last month after more than six years at Realistic.
The directors explained that they understand and support the reasons why Andy has decided to leave and extend their sincere thanks for his commitment, passion and dedicated service to the business.
Founding Director, Andy Cattrell, said, “I would like to thank Andy for his instrumental role in driving the growth of Realistic. It is disappointing for us to lose someone of his caliber, but he leaves the business in great shape, with a capable and talented team ready to meet the challenges ahead.”
Harris joined Realistic Games as Commercial Director in early 2012, having been previously engaged by the Reading-based supplier in a consultancy capacity.
He has played a significant part in driving the success Realistic has experienced during his six-year tenure, creating a business that is now firmly established as an essential supplier to many of the world’s leading gambling operators.
Andy Harris said, “It has been an honor to be at the helm of Realistic Games, and I am confident that the company will continue to do what it has always done best: deliver innovative and market leading content to players, supported by first-class service to its operating partners.”
Harris will step down as CEO immediately but remain at Realistic to lead the initial transitional phase.
