Jacqui Gatt has been appointed Chief Operating Officer (COO) at the LeoVegas-backed SharedPlay, the company’s first senior hire

Before she joined SharedPlay, Gatt served as the Director of Gaming Operations at Casumo Malta. The start-up aims to optimise multiplayer gaming opportunities, engagements and experiences for online operators.

Gatt’s successful track record running igaming units and B2C commercial strategies for Casumo, Mr Green, and Betsson AB was highlighted by SharedPlay as it grew its leadership team.

Undertaken during 2021, company Founder Karolina Pelc has been forging ahead with the company’s strategy following a seed investment of €1.1 million secured by LeoVentures, the venture capital firm of LeoVegas AB.

“It’s a proud moment to see Jacqui join the team at SharedPlay as a COO,” commented SharedPlay founder Karolina Pelc.

“With such vast experience, an immaculate reputation and versatile skillset, she would be an asset to every company—but I truly believe, with what can offer, we can appeal to her true passion for product and operations.”

Igaming operators have a lot to gain by delivering immersive and community-based experiences for users, and Gatt outlined that SharedPlay wants to take advantage of that.

“Looking at social, music and video streaming entertainment apps, the ‘shared experience’ concept is bang on trend. Our goal is to deliver a similar product for online casinos,” Gatt remarked.
