Maxima Compliance Name New Regulatory Director

Experienced gaming consultant Paola Menachem has been named by Maxima Compliance as its Regulatory and Licensing Director.

After executive tenures at Intralot SPA, Zeal Group and Smithfield Partners’ lawyers’ practise, Menachem has more than two decades of legal and regulatory experience in the gaming industry.

Menachem will head the regulatory and licencing team under her current mandate, reporting directly to Managing Director Antonio Zanghi.

Managing Director Antonio Zanghi of Maxima Compliance said: “Our regulatory and licensing department continues to grow rapidly as more gaming businesses turn to Maxima Compliance to facilitate their entries into new markets, and maintenance in existing ones.

“Welcoming Paola to the team means we are able to continue to scale this part of our operations with one of the industry’s leading experts in the field.”

Maxima Compliance reinforced its executive leadership team in 2020, naming Francesco Bianchi as its compliance operations chief and María Romero de Alba as its Business Development Head.

In addition, this summer, the full-service enforcement agency opened its new market development office in Barcelona to support the launch and commercial acceleration of the ‘Complitech’ personalised industry database.

On joining Maxima Compliance Paola Menachem said: “Maxima Compliance has been on my radar for some time now as it has assembled a team of unparalleled compliance expertise.

“It is a real honour to join Maxima Compliance and I look forward to helping clients across the industry find solutions and new approaches to compliance”
