Nektan History and Structure
Nektan was founded in 2011 by Gary Shaw. At first the company was specialised exclusively in the development of gaming platforms for mobile devices. Mr. Shaw was planning on implementing the capacities of mobile games for White Label game portals. The company also worked as an operator, but over time, when online gaming facilities began to steadily gain popularity, the company's management decided to optimise its developments to be available on PCs.
In 2013 the company acquired Mfuse Limited, which specialised in the development of high-quality mobile apps. In 2014 Nektan launched its very first fully functional mobile gaming platform in its own casino with the brand name of RMG and also in Chomp Casino. In May 2014 the company became the first partner of White Label. The company started promoting its products and services to other companies that would later release them under their own brand names.
In November 2014 Nektan signed an agreement with Spin Games LLC in order to get the opportunity to enter the US mobile technologies market. They created a joint venture called Re-spin that offers an innovative approach for casino operators to update their client base and increase their revenue from unsupported slots by providing the players with up-to-date content. The company also promotes integrated solutions for mobile games that operate under the license of Nektan Gambling.
Today Leigh Nissim is Chief Executive Officer of Nektan. Under his leadership the company started specialising not only in the production of high-quality mobile gaming platforms, but also in the development of games that run on HTML5 technology, which can be launched on mobile devices, PCs, tablets and smartphones.

- Gary Shaw - Executive Director and Founder
- Jim Wilkinson - Board Member
