Intralot Appoints Bateson as CCO

Lottery and gaming technology supplier Intralot announced that Richard Bateson has been appointed its chief commercial officer, as the company restructures ahead of an expansion push in North America.

Bateson will report directly to newly appointed Intralot U.S. Chief Executive Nikolaos Nikolakopoulos.

With over 20 years of lottery experience, Bateson has worked as both an operator and vendor within the lottery sector, including Camelot UK Lotteries, which has operated Britain’s national lottery since the 1990s.

More recently, he was a consultant to various companies including Jumbo Interactive, Teneo and Camelot.

“As a former president of EuroMillions, he brings an extensive knowledge of European and North American experience to his new role and will be working with the senior management team to enhance Intralot’s business in North America,” said the company in a press statement.

Bateson will work with Nikolakopoulos to improve the company’s disappointing 2022 financials. The new appointment is the latest step in Intralot’s restructuring efforts. Bateson’s extensive experience in the lottery industry makes him a perfect fit for the position. He spent most of his career with Camelot, where he rose to international senior vice president.
