UK based betting firm Gala Coral Group has announced that it will be combining the interactive divisions of its Gala and Coral branches.
With the combination of the divisions it is thought that they will work closely with the firm's retail division in order to grow the business. In the last two years Coral Interactive has seen its revenues grow by 5.2 times, while Gala Interactive grew by 1.7 times.
Commenting on the combination Gala Coral CEO Carl Leaver said, “We have seen huge progress in our online businesses over the last few years. Now is the right time to bring together our collective knowledge and experience to ensure that our brands continue to develop strongly, while at the same time putting multi-channel at the heart of what we do."
“John is an impressive leader who has been instrumental in reviving Coral's fortunes online. He will be missed as a key member of our senior executive team, but I am delighted not to be losing him completely. The combination of talent in the restructured Interactive management team puts us in great shape for the next phase of our growth.”
