Ganapati names Juliet Adelstein as new chief executive

21 January 2020

Japanese online casino content developer Ganapati has appointed Juliet Adelstein as its new chief executive, with effect from 1 February.

Adelstein joined the Ganapati Group in 2018 and was previously chief operating officer of parent company Ganapati, as well as chief executive of the Malta-based Ganapati Europe Holding and Ganapati Malta businesses.

Aside from this, Adelstein currently serves as co-chief executive of blockchain subsidiary company GanaEight Coin alongside the business' chief legal officer Hayato Terai.

She will replace Hiroki Hasegawa, who had served as CEO of the business since 2014. No reason has been given for his departure.

By appointing Adelstein as its chief executive, Ganapati said it aimed to "establish a bridge" between its Asian and European arms, as it aims to become a truly global gaming business.

“We’re confident that this is the right move for the company – Juliet has proved to be an invaluable asset to Ganapati, she’s grown through the ranks and demonstrated the ability to lead the company in the right direction,” Terai commented.

Founded in Japan, Ganapati develops original online casino content for both the European and Asian gaming markets.

Ganapati also recently announced a collaboration with Usain Bolt, whereby it will produce a range of new casino games based around the former Olympic sprinter.
