Leading Polish operator STS Group has appointed Jarosław Walaszek as its new chief information officer.
In the role, he will be responsible for supporting the company’s management in the development of technologies and the overall digital environment in the group.
Mr Walaszek is an experienced digital media executive, having spent the last 16 years building the digital media offering at Onet and later at Ringier Axel Springer Polska.
STS Group describes itself as the largest licensed bookmaker in Poland based on turnover, and also operates on an international scale through licences in the UK and Estonia, from where it offers its services in several additional markets.
The group’s portfolio includes sports betting, virtual sports, an online casino (outside of Poland), BetGames and a wide range of betting services related to esports.
Mr Walaszek was welcomed by Mateusz Juroszek, CEO of STS, who said: “STS is not only a leader in its industry but also an attractive employer that attracts top talent.
“The fact that Jarek Walaszek joins the group will allow us to build a completely new quality for customers in Poland and abroad. His experience will help make STS’s product and technology offer even more innovative and focused on mobile solutions.”
Already, STS has focused on implementing a ‘mobile-first’ strategy based on its proprietary bookmaking system.
The company now continues to be focused on the constant development of its own technology platform to meet needs of the most demanding customer and set new market standards and trends.
Mr Walaszek celebrated his appointment, saying: “I find the opportunity to join such an innovative organisation with such an ambitious digital transformation a very exciting and stimulating challenge.
“In my past adventure with technology in the world of digital media, I have had the opportunity to participate in and shape many complex and innovative projects, both product-related and cultural-organisational in nature.”
