HENDERSON, Nev., May 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Game Taco, the premier gaming entertainment company and operator of WorldWinner, the leading competitive skill gaming platform, announced today that games-industry veteran, Nancy MacIntyre, has been named CEO, effective immediately.
A well-respected games industry executive, Nancy brings more than 25 years of experience in the gaming and digital entertainment industry and has a proven track record of success in growing audiences worldwide for mass market digital products. Throughout her career, she has launched more than 100 games and 11 No. 1 game titles, resulting in more than $2 billion in revenue.

Nancy joined Game Taco in 2021, where she served as the company’s General Manager and Chief Marketing Officer, leading the WorldWinner direct-to-consumer business. During that time, she played a key role in driving the strategic vision for the company’s brand, more than doubling the number of real money players and tripling cash entry fees on WorldWinner; further solidifying Game Taco’s future as a dominant industry leader and innovator in the paid competitive skill gaming space.
“Since joining, Nancy has been a key driver in making WorldWinner stand out from the competition and building incredible momentum across the organization through her vision, experience, and passion for delivering great gaming experiences for players and partners while reaching new audiences.
