Andrew Pegler named chief commercial officer Gibraltar with Krzysztof Opalka promoted to chief product officer.


[dropcap]Y[/dropcap]ggdrasil Gaming has bolstered its management team with the appointment of Andrew Pegler as chief commercial officer Gibraltar: current head of front end development and operations, Krzysztof Opałka, has been promoted to chief product officer.

Pegler is an iGaming veteran with more than 12 years’ experience in the industry, and joins the supplier from Scientific Games where he was senior director, key account management for the firm’s interactive division.

He will be based out of Yggdrasil’s Gibraltar office, and will be responsible for growing the supplier’s presence in the region.

Pegler’s appointment coincides with Krzysztof Opałka being promoted to the position of chief product officer, having previously been responsible for building the technology, processes and leading the multi-disciplinary team behind Yggdrasil’s award-winning games.

Opalka, who previously worked for social gaming giant King, will be based in Yggdrasil’s development office in Krakow, Poland.


As we continue to grow the business it is vital that we have the brightest minds and experienced hands on board.


Fredrik Elmqvist, CEO at Yggdrasil Gaming, said: “On behalf of everyone here at Yggdrasil Gaming I would like to welcome Andrew to the team and congratulate Krzysztof on his well-deserved promotion.

“As we continue to grow the business it is vital that we have the brightest minds and experienced hands on board, and Andrew and Krzysztof certainly meet those requirements. They will both play a key role in the future direction of the business.”

Andrew Pegler, chief commercial officer Gibraltar at Yggdrasil Gaming, said: “Yggdrasil is a very exciting business with proven high quality games, agile technology, and the best in-game promotional tools in the industry.

“We are live with bet365 already from Gibraltar and we have a lot of operators on the roadmap. I will apply my commercial skills, experience and network within iGaming to truly establish Yggdrasil in Gibraltar and beyond. The opportunity is massive.”

The appointment of Pegler is the latest hire in Yggdrasil’s ongoing recruitment drive which has seen the company double in size over the past 12 months to almost 100 members.

This has resulted in an expansion to the company’s Malta office and its global tech centre in Poland, as well as the development of a new commercial operation out of Gibraltar.
