2 December 2008

Lee Fenton, a former executive at Fox Mobile, has joined Gamesys Group as chief operating officer, the company announced on Tuesday.

Mr. Fenton, who left his job this summer as chief executive and chief operating officer at Fox and as managing director of Jamba, a News Corp-owned mobile content provider, has been brought on to drive revenue growth and product development across the Jackpotjoy platform, according to a prepared statement from Gamesys.

Prior to working for Fox, Fenton was global director of consumer products and content at Vodafone Group, a mobile telecommunications company.

“Lee is considered a leading light in the digital industry, where he has built up a huge level of experience in developing truly engaging consumer experiences and content,” said Noel Hayden, Gamesys’ chief executive, in the statement. “Harnessing this experience will be a key part of our strategy to take Gamesys onto even greater success.”
