Relax Gaming, the iGaming aggregator and supplier of unique content, has strengthened its commercial team to deliver upon its market expansion plans with the promotion of Nadiya Attard to the role of chief commercial officer, it announced on Thursday.
Having held the position of director of sales since joining Relax two years ago, Ms Attard boasts 20 years of experience in the iGaming sector, across both B2B and B2C for industry giants including Betfair, Microgaming and NetEnt.
Offering a unique combination of commercial and technical knowledge, as well as a Master’s degree in programming, Ms Attard has consistently exhibited an in-depth understanding of regulatory landscape and legal framework across numerous jurisdictions.
Thanks to her wealth of experience, Relax Gaming says her role has proven invaluable to its “impressive growth” in recent years, aiding in significant expansion in distribution of the company’s network.
With a solution-oriented approach, Ms Attard is said to hold a well-earned reputation for consistently delivering on her targets, even when faced with challenges and alongside her dedication to maintaining a healthy work-life balance.
In her appointment, she will be succeeding Daniel Eskola, who will now take on the role of Deputy CEO.
He moved from CEO to CCO in November 2019 to focus fully on the commercial side of the business, during which time Relax went from strength to strength, with revenue from its slot content increasing by a staggering 592 per cent.
Commenting on Ms Attard’s appointment, Mr Eskola said: “I am very proud of the commercial team, which has delivered phenomenal growth in a highly competitive market. After committing to two years as CCO and all targets delivered, it is time to hand over the reins to Nadiya who has been outstanding from day one.
“The commercial team is in very capable hands to lead Relax onward to a total of 300 plus operators in the coming years, including multiple market entries on the horizon. On a personal note, I am incredibly excited to move into my role as deputy CEO at Relax, giving me time to focus on special projects that are expected to be delivered in late spring 2022.”
Ms Attard added: “Two years ago when joining Relax, my promise was to help accelerate the company’s success and now it’s time to reach new heights and take the next step.
“With a continued focus on team growth, development, empowerment and collaboration, I know we will continue to exceed expectations as we continue to drive differentiation and expand into new regulated markets.”
Relax now offers its partners more than 3,000 online casino games, featuring headline slots from its in-house studios along with a vast collection of content aggregated through its Silver Bullet and Powered By Relax partnership programmes.
Recognised by the industry as a true driver of differentiation, Relax Gaming has won a host of awards for its approach, celebrating “Casino Content Supplier” at the 2021 EGR Awards, as well as “Casino Software Supplier” at the EGR B2B 2020 Awards.
