One firm’s loss was another’s gain this week when Canadian online gambling
software developer, Chartwell Technology, appointed Dan Phillips as VP
Operations for its subsidiary, Chartwell Games (International) Ltd. Phillips had
been ‘lured’ away from struggling UK gambling firm, Gala Coral.

For eight years Phillips was the Gaming Director at Gala Corel, where he oversaw
the company’s casino, poker, bingo and TV operations. Before that Phillips put
in seven years with another leading UK gambling company, Ladbrokes. There he
oversaw and managed the firm’s land-based casino operations.

With 15 years of experience in a multi-billion pound industry that is growing in
leaps and bounds everyday, a man like Phillips has become increasingly valuable
in the online gambling industry. As such, Chartwell Games is celebrating the
fact that all of his experience will now be directed to increase its market

‘I am very excited to be joining a progressive and ambitious company like
Chartwell,’ said Phillips. ‘I am confident that my experience in all aspects of
online gaming operations will add value across Chartwell’s entire portfolio of
online gambling products and services.’ But Phillips departure came at a very
bad time for Gala.

The Gala Group is currently struggling to maintain its position in the lucrative
online bingo market place, where young and vibrant rival online bingo operators
such as Foxy Bingo and Tombolo Bingo are fast gaining market share. And just
when Gala needed the skills of Phillips to turn things around, he jumped ship.

However, this is the reality of an industry that has become cutthroat, with tens
of millions of pounds at stake as more and more people are choosing to gamble
online from their own homes, instead of at high street bingo halls to betting
shops or land casinos and poker halls.

Said Chartwell Games (International) Ltd CEO, Lee Richardson, ‘The addition of
Dan Phillips significantly expands our team’s capabilities and adds a wealth of
experience from the operational perspective. He will oversee our community and
networked games divisions and our new fully managed services operations which
include our soon to launch Chartwell Games Platform.’
