Malta-based Aspire Global has taken another step in the expansion of its business in the US by appointing executive Quincy Raven as the managing director of Aspire Global US.
Announcing the appointment, Aspire explained that the US is one of its prioritised markets in which the company is foreseeing significant growth opportunities.
As the managing director of Aspire Global US, Mr Raven is expected to be instrumental in leading and executing on Aspire Global’s growth strategy for the US gaming market.
The 20-year veteran of the technology and gaming industries will bring key market insights and expertise to the company’s management team, gained especially in the past decade through his holding of key strategic roles focused on new market development followed by rapid expansion.
Most recently, Mr Raven served as senior director of Gaming and Payments at Blackhawk Network and before that he was executive director of Business Development Americas at Scientific Games.
Welcoming the new addition, Tsachi Maimon, CEO of Aspire Global said: “The US iGaming market is growing at an impressive rate and our objective is to be at the forefront of the developments.
“Quincy has excellent experience and will focus on accelerating sales and setting up the relevant operations in order to make sure Aspire Global can establish a significant presence in the US market”.
Mr Raven celebrated his appointment and explained he was excited about the task ahead of him.
“Aspire Global is one of the strongest supplier brands in the iGaming industry abroad with leading B2B offerings. I look forward to the opportunity to head Aspire Global’s expansion in the US and introduce its complete solution to US operators and companies who want to build a presence in the growing US iGaming market.”
The appointment comes as operators and suppliers around the world turn their eyes towards the swiftly liberalising US market.
Several US states have already legalised some types of online betting and Aspire Global currently has licences in New Jersey and West Virginia. It has also filed applications for accessibility in Pennsylvania and Michigan.
The eventual objective, it says, is to file “in all accessible states”.
Aspire Global has recently signed significant game deals with GAN and Amelco, and is live since spring this year with its game offering with Rush Street Interactive in New Jersey.
