QTech Games, an Asian games distributor, has appointed Markus Nasholm to the new role of Global CEO, as it seeks to extend its presence and influence across the industry.
Nasholm has recently arrived at QTech Games after successful stints at Bet24 (part of the Kindred Group) and the casino and sports affiliate, Catena Media. There, he proved himself across a suite of senior roles, having taken the reins as chief financial officer in 2016. Showcasing a series of core capacities, from managing finance projects (featuring an IPO / listing on Nasdaq Stockholm Mid-Cap market) to broader international finance planning, Nasholm established himself as a rising star of igaming.
Equally adept in the key domains of Corporate Development and M&A, this Chartered Accountant and MBA will oversee the brand’s maturation throughout worldwide markets, emerging or established, with a keen eye for global strategy.
Now Nasholm brings his expertise and 15-plus years of industry experience to the online gaming platform, based in the gaming mecca of Manila. Having already secured its status in Asia, QTech Games has tasked Nasholm with replicating those gains across breakout territories, like LatAm and Africa over the year ahead.
The Board of QTech Games 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 himself 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.”
