St Julian’s-based iGaming company Relax Gaming Ltd has appointed Simon Hammon as its new CEO.

Mr Hammon will be succeeding Tommi Maijala, who had held the position since November 2019. Mr Maijala will remain at Relax Gaming up until the end of the year to support the new CEO in his transition.

Mr Hammon first joined Relax Gaming as Chief Product Officer in January 2018. He held said position up until his latest appointment.

“I’m truly honoured to take on the position of Chief Executive Officer at Relax Gaming. As a company, we’ve continued to grow from strength to strength over the last few years and we represent a world class offering across all verticals,” Mr Hammon said.

“Of course, a company is only as strong as the people who embody its mission, and I’m blessed to have a team who are so passionate about what they do and want to see Relax taken to the next level,” he continued.

Prior to joining Relax Gaming, Mr Hammon spent just under seven years at NetEnt, throughout which he served as Product Manager and Chief Product Officer.

“Relax is continuing steadfast on its journey to claim an ever-larger footprint in the gambling industry, and we believe Mr Hammon, with his experience, knowledge and vision is the perfect person to lead the team in the coming years,” Relax Gaming Chairman Patrik Österåker said.

“Simultaneously, we’d like to take the opportunity to extend our gratitude to our outgoing CEO Tommi Maijala, who has been instrumental in guiding the company through arguably the most pivotal years of our history. Simon will be able to continue building boldly, supported by the confidence that a rock-solid foundation provides,” he concluded.

With a 12-year history, Relax Gaming has built a solid reputation for market-leading products and solutions driven by its Poker, Bingo, Casino and Aggregation business.

The company has gone from strength to strength with a deep distribution and partner network offering a compelling offering to the market.
