The new business segment will offer advisory services related to mergers and acquisitions, as well as strategic and operational advice.
Tekkorp founder Matt Davey said that the business took the step into advisory services due to popular demand from businesses in the sector.
“Tekkorp Capital has been inundated with requests from multinational corporations through to innovators in the global digital gaming sector to provide strategic advice,” he said. “We have now assembled a team with an unrivalled blend of M&A and operational leadership experience to ensure we can provide the best possible guidance on a range of complex issues facing executives in the sector today.”
Nieboer will join the business as a partner, becoming part of a leadership team that also includes Davey, as well as president Robin Chhabra and chief financial officer Eric Matejevich.
“The opportunity to join up with such an impressive group of people at Tekkorp Capital does not come along very often,” Nieboer said. “As a team, we have advised or executed on over $24bn of deals in the digital gambling sector to date.
“All of us have held CEO, MD or CFO roles at major digital operators, as well as having distinguished M&A backgrounds. This knowledge of what works from an operator standpoint in M&A is the real key difference between Tekkorp Capital and other advisory firms in our industry.”
