Chief Executive Officer
This is a big year for James Curwen as he looks to take Yggdrasil to the next level and establish it as one of the leading slot providers in the industry. He was poached from OPAP with a specific remit to lead Yggdrasil’s next phase of driving sustainable, profitable growth. Handed the reins last October, he has big plans for the company this year, and this looks like a partnership that should thrive. Having first burst onto the scenes 11 years ago under Cherry’s ownership, Yggdrasil has developed blockbuster slots such as Valley of the Gods and Vikings Go Berserk, but has struggled to stand out in a highly competitive market. With James renewing the company’s focus on innovation and technology, Yggdrasil should be one to watch in 2024.
