Online casino game developer Peter & Sons has beefed up its powerhouse of talent with two new hires as it flexes new muscle found in a recent significant investment from SkillOnNet.
Coming on as a co-CEO is SkillOnNet’s senior vice president of corporate development, Maor Nutkevitch. The CEO will stay on with his position at SkillOnNet and help Peter & Sons navigate its way through the already charted pathways to expansion and growth in regulated markets that are key to its success as a challenger brand among the standard-bearers of Tier-one operations.
Account management will be headed up by the experience mind and hand of Christina Mirnaia, an experienced business management professional with CV jump-outs including important roles at Bwin Party and Entain, but most recently at the so-far unsung creative dynamo of Barbara Bang where Mirnaia was most recently Head of Partnerships and Business Development.
Adds to Crucial Partnerships
Peter & Sons already has crucial partnerships with more well-known brands such as Bragg Gaming (formerly Oryx), Relax, and Yggdrasil. Mirnaia will deepen those partnerships while bringing new business in through Peter & Sons’ new remote gaming server platform.
The account manager said: “It’s always exciting to join a fast-growing project and to be part of building something special and Peter & Sons has been like a breath of fresh air for the industry.
“The games are already famous for their creativity, art, and math, and that makes my job a whole lot easier. I also can’t wait to start working with the Peter & Sons team, which is amazingly dynamic, professional, and creative, producing games that are already making waves in the industry,” Mirnaia said.
For those as yet unfamiliar with the Peter & Sons portfolio of games, the company “works with world-class artists, mathematicians, and musicians to produce some of the most innovative, creative, and entertaining slots on the market,” according to a press release the company issued announcing the two new hires.
Among its most popular and well-executed games are Legend of Musashi, Dragon Blox, and the recently released title, Book of Books – a bold take on a popular but highly competitive genre in game theme and mechanics.
Peter & Sons Rising
SkillOnNet could have chosen to incubate, invest, and stand behind any number of up-and-coming talent powerhouses out there and this deal bodes well for the as-yet unseen-by most outright low rumble of absolute power intrinsic in the young studio.
“Having the ability to distribute the games in many regulated markets is a fantastic platform for growth which is not always available for relatively new studios. It’s really exciting to be part of a project at such a key moment in Peter & Sons’ trajectory.”
Peter & Sons founder and commercial director, Yann Bautista added: “I’d officially like to welcome Maor and Christina to the team and say how thrilled we are to have you both on board. This is a major milestone in the short life of our studio as we continue our journey to becoming a major force in the content world.”
