Unikrn Hires Gambling Industry Titan, Andrew Vouris, as New COO to Lead Wagering and Gaming Growth Strategies

Vouris’ February Addition is in Time for Unikrn’s European Rollout

#andrewvourisUnikrn, one of esports’ and gaming’s biggest brands, is onboarding
a new COO, Andrew Vouris
. Vouris, who has over 10 years of experience growing one of Wagering and Gaming’s most successful brands (Tabcorp), will join Unikrn in February. As COO, Vouris will lead Wagering and Gaming growth strategies, as well as connecting and
synergizing the company’s global team and four primary offices (in Seattle, Las Vegas, Sydney and Berlin). He will report directly into Rahul Sood, Unikrn’s CEO.

 

In early 2018, Unikrn plans to launch a regulated betting operation
across 80% of Europe utilizing their recently acquired Malta Gaming
License, and Vouris will steer operations with the experience gained
from helping grow Tabcorp into a global leader across a decade.

As Deputy COO at Tabcorp, Vouris was responsible for the retail, digital
and online channels and helped grow the Tabcorp Wagering business to $13
billion before making the decision to leave. He was also responsible for
the Unikrn investment by Tabcorp and has had an insider view of the
company since inception.

Many other established betting firms actively sought to recruit Vouris
before he made the decision to join Unikrn.

“We hope none of our competitors will hold a grudge that Andrew picked Unikrn. It wasnever a fair fight given our recent success and his long-established love of both esports and our company,” said Rahul Sood, CEO of Unikrn. “With UnikoinGold and ourEuropeanexpansion, we have a busy year ahead of us. Andrew is going to bring the experience and discipline that we need to accelerate Unikrn’s path toward unprecedentedsuccess.”

In addition to the upcoming European rollout, Unikrn’s teams arepreparing for leviathan rollouts throughout 2018, expecting updates toinclude crypto betting, 24-hour and real-time betting in applicableregions, re-entry to Australia, real-money betting, improved websitegamification, expanded uses for the UnikoinGold token and much more.

“I first met the Unikrn crew back in 2014. That’s when I made thedecision that Tabcorp would invest in them to help them build theirbusiness,” said Andrew Vouris. “Obviously, I fell in love with the team,the brand, the vision and the product — this company is the future, andI’m going to make sure we expose them to the world.”
