Bettorlogic has announced the appointment of Steve High – architect of some of Betfair's most innovative and revolutionary features – as chief technology officer.

High was among Betfair’s first 70 employees and played a significant role in the success of the betting exchange. In addition to a major contribution to the core Betfair platform itself, he led the development projects for Betfair’s Multiples, SP and API products.

The new CTO will lead Bettorlogic’s fast-growing development team – and will initially focus on planned additions to Bettorlogic’s current Form Lab bet stimulation and Trader Lab ranges. He’ll also begin the development of a new innovation – scheduled to launch in spring 2010.

Mike Falconer, CEO of Bettorlogic, said: “He’s designed and developed some of the most ground-breaking betting products ever seen and his enthusiasm to build more is inspiring. This is a major coup for Bettorlogic.”
