Helio Gaming appoints Galea as new CEO

19 November 2019

Malta-based lottery provider Helio Gaming has appointed Keith Galea, formerly the company’s chief operating officer, as its new chief executive.

Previous chief executive Richard Mifsud will move to a consultancy role, where he will focus on business continuity and growth.

Galea joined Helio in June, having previously worked as chief product officer at platform solutions provider Bit8. Galea also serves as the managing director of consultancy Consult Labs.

“I’m delighted to be taking over as CEO of Helio Gaming and honoured to be given the opportunity to help build on the company’s commercial achievements to date.

“Helio Gaming’s lottery solutions are an asset for any operator looking to diversify its games portfolio, and I think their universal appeal will help the business go from strength to strength in the years to come.” 

Mifsud, who founded Helio in January 2018, said his move would allow him to help Helio grow in new markets in Africa and Asia.

“I’m looking forward to exploring new business opportunities for Helio Gaming as we look to capitalise on promising new markets in places like Asia and Africa,” Mifsud said.

“We are making in-roads there already and freeing up my time to explore further opportunities will be beneficial.”
