The Rank Group recently named the new Managing Director for their bingo division, Mecca Bingo, as Martin Pugh. The new MD has previously worked as MD for Camelot and will have the task of taking the lead with the new bingo strategy for the 93 retail clubs that Rank currently own and looking for locations for three new venues that they plan to open.
The position became available as MD for Mecca Bingo following the departure of Philip Urban, the Grosvenor Casino MD. The company chose to restructure all of its retail management operations at this point.
Speaking of the appointment of the new MD for Mecca Bingo, Henry Birch who is the CEO of Rank said “Rank is already one of the industry leaders in bingo and, with Martin’s wealth of experience in not only gambling but also marketing and leisure, I am confident that he will help us to bring gaming based entertainment to an even wider audience.”
Mr Pugh has a lot of previous experience in the UK leisure market having held top positions as both Virgin Active where he was also MD and Adpoints where he was the CEO. He said of his new role at Mecca Bingo “Rank has fantastic assets and brands and has the potential to grow substantially its business across all channels.”
He starts his new role with Mecca in 2015, on 5th January.
