QTech has appointed Markus Nasholm, formerly of Bet24 and Catena Media, as Global CEO. The Asian games distributor is seeking to extend its presence and influence across the industry, and Nasholm comes with 15 years of industry experience

The QTech board issued a statement saying: “We’re thrilled to have installed Markus at the helm of the QTech team for 2019 and beyond. We’ve always been intent on recruiting only the best personnel on the planet, not just the best games, and this key hire is an embodiment of that mission statement.

“We now have a Global CEO who has proved himself in high-growth gaming arenas, from start-ups to venture-capital vehicles and on to multinational blue-chip companies. This breadth of multi-dimensional experience, allied to his innate team leadership and flair for bottom-line accountability, made Markus the logical choice to wisely steward the expansion of our global footprint into new territories.”

Nasholm added: “It’s a hugely exciting time to be taking on this new challenge alongside a few of the brightest minds in the industry, coupled to some of the most pioneering technology. After a successful 2018 of double-digit growth, enhancing the speed and performance of all games on its platform, QTech has careered into the industry consciousness with a series of new deals and innovative tools.

“Just take the landmark launch of our new campaign tool in Q4 2018 that will enable operators to run campaigns across the entire QTech portfolio. Such is the collective quality and passion of the team – from our machine-learning software to our targeted departments for Africa and Latin America – the distributional scope is there to facilitate QTech Games’ transition into one of the largest providers of digital entertainment around.”
