As part of the restructuring, Yolo Ventures, the B2B and partnerships arm of Yolo Group, will invest additional capital to expedite the rapid growth of the Hub88 content aggregator platform. Hub88 will ultimately be able to offer all partners international banking services through open banking functionality via FCA regulated Aims Financial, a Yolo Investments invested asset.
Lewis – who most recently served as the chief commercial officer of Pariplay – will assume the newly-created position of CEO of the Bombay Group.
Her remit will involve heading up Hub88, as well as the high roller live casino product Bombay Club and the innovative mobile-focused games studio OneTouch.
Maarja Pärt, CEO of the Yolo Group, said: “We’re putting into place a world-class team to take our B2B gaming businesses to the next level, and Christine is a vital part of it. Her experience at some of the biggest names in our industry stands her apart, and she’s exactly the type of disruptive thinker we welcome at the Yolo Group. It’s great to have her onboard.”
Christine Lewis, CEO of the Bombay Group, said: “I’ve watched the remarkable growth of Yolo Group over the past few years with interest. Hub88, OneTouch and more recently the Bombay Club live studio are changing the game with new approaches to old challenges. It’s a real honour to join the team.”
