Wayne Fisher has been promoted to Chief Commercial Officer (Europe), following periods as a Senior Key Account Manager at NetEnt and Head of Casino at Evoke Gaming.

Astrid Lehmann has also been promoted to the position of Senior Account Manager, having built up a wealth of experience in the igaming industry across time with iSoftBet and Yggdrasil Gaming.
