Sportingtech Appoints Tom Ustunel as New CEO to Lead Company Expansion in 2024
Leading betting and gaming platform provider Sportingtech has announced the appointment of Tom Ustunel as its new chief executive officer. Ustunel, who has been with Sportingtech for the last two years, brings a wealth of experience from leadership roles in high-profile industry companies and will be spearheading the company’s further expansion in 2024.
Prior to joining Sportingtech, Ustunel served as the chief of gaming operations for GameAccount Network (GAN), where he led teams and contributed to the company’s success. He also held the position of betting and gaming director at News UK, overseeing significant growth in gaming assets during his six-year tenure.
In a statement, Ustunel expressed his excitement about joining the company and highlighted Sportingtech’s outstanding success in 2023. He expressed hope that his leadership would contribute to the company’s strong momentum and help it reach new heights. With a strong emphasis on product development and maximizing offerings for customers and bettors, Ustunel seems well-suited for the position.
The appointment of Ustunel follows another high-profile leadership change at Sportingtech in September 2023, when the company onboarded Michael Jack as chief technology officer. This focus on attracting leading talent aligns with Sportingtech’s mission to bolster its growth in existing and emerging markets.
As the new CEO, Ustunel will lead Sportingtech’s strategic expansion in the Latin American market, aiming to capitalize on the region’s growing popularity in the gambling industry. The company’s recent industry awards, including Platform Provider of the Year at the SBC Summit Latinoamerica and the Multi-Channel Supplier award at the SBC Summit Barcelona, solidify its reputation as a top-tier provider and will be instrumental in spearheading new strategic partnerships in regulated markets.
With his strong credentials, Ustunel is set to contribute valuable experience as Sportingtech aims to make its mark on the global stage in the coming year. His appointment reflects the company’s commitment to its people and the overall growth strategy, ensuring enduring growth and overcoming rising challenges.
