SportingTech has appointed Javier Samel as Head of Business Development LatAm, where he will be in charge of the company’s expansion in the region.

Samel will be responsible for growing Sportingtech’s recently re-purposed and re-branded omnichannel Quantum platform, which is presently being certified in a number of regions across the continent.

Samel said: “I’m very excited about the opportunities opening up for a company like Sportingtech with a dynamic platform like Quantum and am looking forward to working as the bridge between them and local operators.”

Samel formerly worked at Grupo Boldt as the online operations manager, bringing with him 12 years of experience in the Latin American online gaming and sports betting businesses.

Since then, he has advised companies in Argentina, Colombia, and Peru on sports betting, gaming platforms, and marketing.

‘Perfect fit’

Ivo Doroteia, CEO of Sportingtech, said Samel’s appointment will be a “perfect fit” for expanding the company’s reach.

He added: “Javier is a great addition to the Sportingtech family, and we are looking forward to combining his expertise with our team’s experience and products. I’m sure his inputs will enrich the collaborative debates during collective decision-making processes for Latam.

“He is in a privileged position to utilise his extensive market knowledge, to work with existing clients in the region, and develop our Quantum platform in the region, as well as providing a springboard into new business relationships.”
