Adelstein has been a part of the company since 2018, working in multiple positions. These include CEO of Ganapati Europe, and Co-CEO of subsidiary company GanaEight Coin.
Current CEO Hiroki Hasegawa has been in the role since 2014 and , alongside new CEO Juliet Adelstein, oversaw the deal with world famous athlete and eight-time Olympic gold medallist Usain Bolt to partner on an upcoming online slot game that will be released this summer.
Adelstein, talking about the deal with Usain Bolt said that:
“ This Partnership between Ganapati and Usain Bolt is hugely exciting and represents just how big we have grown in such a short space of time.”
Warm Words For Outgoing CEO
Ganapati Chief Learning Officer, Hayato Terai, had this to say on Hasegawa’s depature:
“We would like to thank Mr Hasegawa for his dedication to the role until now and are delighted to be stepping forward with Juliet as CEO. We’re confident that this is the right move for the company – Juliet has proved to be an invaluable asset to Ganapati, she’s grown through the ranks and demonstrated the ability to lead the company in the right direction.”
This is one of several recent shakeups in the gambling industry including BMM promoting Gene Chayevsky to President and Chief Financial Officer, and the agreement between Caesars and VICI for the sale of Harrah’s Reno for $50m.
It is an exciting time in the gambling industry. It will be intriguing to see the direction Adelstein takes Ganapati in, especially with how big the company has grown in a relatively short space of time.
