Plumbee names Gorle as finance director

14 March 2014

Social casino studio Plumbee has announced the appointment of Rob Gorle as its new finance director.

In his new role, Gorle will be responsible for leading Plumbee’s commercial strategy as it pushes for further growth in the social casino space across games and platforms.

Gorle, a Yahoo! veteran of seven years, was most recently the chief financial officer and board member of mobile and social games group Zattikka.

Raf Keustermans, co-founder and chief executive officer of Plumbee, said: “We are delighted that Rob agreed to join our executive team. He brings with him almost two decades of strategic finance experience and expertise in media, games and entertainment.”

Gorle's appointment as finance director will allow Plumbee co-founder Gerald Tan to step into the position of chief product officer with a renewed focus on the firm’s products and roadmap.

In the redefined role, Tan will oversee design and development of news games and features, including the recently launched tournaments feature in the firm’s Mirrorball Slots title, which was reported by iGaming Business earlier this week.

“With Rob on board and Gerald now 100% focus on product, we have really upgraded Plumbee's management team and we're now ready to accelerate growth at all levels,” Keustermans added.
