March 13, 2014 | Sarah Blackburn

Plumbee, innovative provider of social casino games, announced today the appointment of Rob Gorle to the position of Finance Director (FD).
Gorle will be primarily responsible for leading Plumbee’s commercial strategy as the company continues to experience rapid growth within the social casino space, across games and platforms.

Gorle is a Yahoo! Veteran of 7 years and was most recently CFO and board member of mobile and social games group Zattikka. He qualified as a Chartered Accountant with PwC.

This appointment allows Gerald Tan, one of the Plumbee co-founders to step into the CPO (Chief Product Officer) role, with a renewed focus on the company’s products and roadmap. In his redefined role, Tan will oversee more closely the design and development of new games and features, like the recently launched tournaments feature within the company’s hit game Mirrorball Slots.

Raf Keustermans, CEO and co-founder 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. 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.”

Rob Gorle added: “I’m very excited to join the Plumbee leadership team. After the recent $14 million Series B round led by Endemol, the company is well positioned to challenge the current market leaders. I’m really looking forward to working with the team to help execute Plumbee’s growth strategy.
