Licensed blockchain lottery operator Quanta has announced with immediate effect the appointment of Harmen Brenninkmeijer as the new chief executive of the firm.
The appointment follows a strategic review by Dynamic Partners that impressed Quanta’s board of directors with Brenninkmeijer’s vision for the future of the company.
As a result, the board subsequently made it their goal to secure the commitment of Brenninkmeijer to guide Quanta through this period of change and on through the next development phase of the business as it intends to use blockchain to build gaming solutions that maximise capacity while reducing entry barriers.
Talking about the appointment of its new CEO, Quanta said: “Harmen is the ideal person to lead Quanta. He has significant experience in gaming as an operator and as a supplier and has a unique understanding of the challenges of all parts of the gaming business.
“He has worked in many countries and his network will help Quanta to expand its reach and establish new customers and partnerships in high growth markets. Harmen led the strategic review undertaken by Dynamic Partners and has made, and will implement, the recommendations resulting from the review.
“Harmen will focus on the stabilisation of the company, resetting the vision and the implementation of best practice across business development, product development, operations and management.”
Brenninkmeijer, who has a reputation for developing unique products and adopting new technology, is joining Quanta with a wealth of experience gained from his time working across emerging markets in controlled gaming sectors.
Having successfully supplied gaming equipment in more than 70 countries, consulted and developed the gaming industry, the new CEO recently formed the Global Chain as a platform for setting up equity ventures in 2016.
Discussing his experience and future vision for Quanta, Brenninkmeijer added: “You can see from my track record that I have always had a great interest in emerging technologies in the gaming space. My feeling is that Quanta is the leading proponent in the development, operation and support of regulated gaming solutions that utilise blockchain.
“Our vision is to be the leader in this new space and to develop solutions that are low cost and so suit both highly competitive as well as emerging markets; are tech and currency agnostic to provide as broad coverage as possible; are decentralised where feasible to deliver transparency to the user and the regulator; and that are flexible enough to enable the discovery of new business models. I am hugely positive and excited about Quanta’s future.”
