Zynga’s vice president of revenue operations Ryan Linton has left the company to join UK gambling start-up Betable as its new chief revenue officer. It’s a company that offer solutions to developers who want real-money gambling in their games.

In a statement on the matter, Linton wrote, “There are very few companies that can claim to have created a truly disruptive business model. Betable is one of those companies.

“The significance of providing developers with the ability to overcome a tremendous barrier to entry, while at the same time giving them the power to offer real-money play within their own games, can’t be stressed enough.”

Betable CEO Christopher Griffin added, “Ryan is an important addition to our team. I have no doubt that Ryan’s deep experience with payment providers and world-class brands will lead us in exceeding our commitment to offering best-in-class experiences for both developers and players.”
