Innovative games provider ESA Gaming has expanded its senior team with the hire of Massimiliano Vandelli as head of sales.
Mr Vandelli joins after a decade at leading provider Microgaming, where he most recently held a senior sales position, after having previously worked for GVC and Sportingbet in Italy.
Zorica Smallwood, director at ESA Gaming, welcomed him, saying: “We are very pleased to welcome Massimiliano to ESA Gaming as our Head of Sales. We strive to add the best individuals to our team and he joins us with extensive industry experience and invaluable knowledge.
“We have ambitious goals for 2022, and we look forward to Massimiliano helping us achieve them.”
His appointment comes as ESA Gaming looks to continue a strong period of growth, having recently received its MGA and Greek licences, while also signing key commercial agreements in Portugal, Colombia and Italy.
It marks another important hire for ESA Gaming, following the addition of its new head of games in August as the company continues to add experienced industry figures to its growing team.
ESA Gaming’s portfolio is headlined by its collection of EasySwipe titles, designed to offer increased cross-sell opportunities to sportsbooks by allowing users to enjoy the best quality casino games without disrupting the sports betting experience.
The new appointee celebrated his appointment, saying: “It is a very exciting time to be joining ESA Gaming, with a thrilling roadmap and new licences allowing us to expand our horizons significantly. I’m looking forward to this opportunity and can’t wait to get started.”
