Observant industry visitors to the recent Eig Expo in Copenhagen recently may have come across an executive type bearing a show badge identifying him as the CEO of the at times controversial online gambling software provider Top Game Casinos.
Speculation increased this week when a marketing affiliate posted that a useful conversation had been held with the new CEO at Top Game, who is apparently cleaning house with vigour and efficiency to obviate the chances of embarrassing software glitches at the burgeoning number of online casinos that have become licensees of the company.
The name circulating among interested industry people is Yossi Goren, a thirty-something finance whizz who was chief exec at NewNMH Ltd.back in October 2007 and has worked in other industry companies, including the Brightshare affiliate program and as Financial Manager at Spiral Solutions Ltd.
A graduate of Universitat Ben Gurion Ba-Negev, Ha'Universita Ha'Petuha and Ruppin, Goren has in the past quoted a reference from the respected Brightshare manager Lloyd Apter, who appears to think highly of him, saying:
"If you are looking for a team player with a naturally strong financial aptitude, excellent business sense; who is very energetic and is a fun and exciting professional to work with then please meet Yossi Goren.
"I have had the pleasure of working with Yossi for nearly two years, as the affiliate program manager of an online casino group and coming from a financial background I was overwhelmed by the financial abilities that Yossi brought to the business.
"Yossi has alone significantly improved the casino group bottom line by excelling in the areas of fraud control, processing, acquisition and retention financial strategizing and control and overall financial planning, budgeting, and control."
Now you know, and you can expect to see good things happening under Top Game's new leadership.
