Affiliate and white label operator QiH Group has announced the appointment of two new members in its UK team and has also promoted Daryl Leagas to marketing communications director.

Daryl has been with the company since 2015, beginning as head of creative before being promoted to design director in 2021. He took up the newly created role last month and said his promotion reflected the company’s focus on driving performance and growing its revenues even further.

“Over the next 12 to 18 months we plan to rejuvenate our entire brand portfolio, focusing on our 12 Tau Marketing Services operator brands, our six Digital Adventure affiliate websites and our own QiH Group identity,” said Daryl.

“We’ve invested heavily in recruiting the right talent to help us drive this forward, and we’re really happy with the quality of the candidates we’ve been able to attract into the business.”

The first of the new hires is Richard Morton, who took up the new role of brand designer last week. Richard has worked in the gaming industry for a number of years, holding various roles at Betway over an almost three-year period and having most recently been lead designer at sports betting consultancy Editech.

In his new role he will report to fellow Betway alum Tom Murch, who took up the post of head of design at QiH Group in May. Murch was design manager at Betway’s Win Technologies for three-and-a-half years before joining QiH and he also previously worked at Gamesys for more than eight years.

Commenting on his appointment, Richard said: “I’m really excited to join the QiH Group family and to be part of helping redefine and grow the brand identity. I was particularly keen to take up the opportunity to work with Tom again. During our time at Betway, Tom and I collaborated on numerous successful projects, ranging from product enhancements to global sporting campaigns and a large-scale brand evolution project. I am thrilled about the potential for us to work together on new and exciting projects here at QiH.”

The second of the new hires is Sharon Joy, who joined this week as head of partnerships. She was most recently commercial manager at TAG Media, having been promoted from affiliate manager. Prior to that, she worked at marketing firm Kushinda, which specialises in working with igaming companies.

Jamie Walters, CEO at QiH Group, said: “We’re really delighted to have secured such an experienced new hire in Sharon. We believe she will do a great job of helping build on our already strong partnerships, with leading operators in both the UK and the US among our clients.

“We also believe our tech upgrade will play a significant role in growing our existing relationships and forging new ones. We’ve recently completed an overhaul of our back end and we now want to make sure our front end is equally good, with a focus on user experience and new brand identities.”

Commenting on her appointment, Sharon said: “I am excited to be joining a company that is growing as fast as QiH Group and I look forward to being part of driving this further forward. Key things that attracted me to the role were QiH’s strong relationships with existing clients, the opportunity to be part of its expansion into new markets, including those in the US, and the chance to work with such a data-focused and experienced team.”
