Live casino pioneer Authentic Gaming has added serious fire-power to its management team by hiring former NetEnt sales manager, Magdalena Podhorska.
Podhorska joins the team as head of sales and B2B marketing, and will be responsible for extending the supplier’s reach in regulated European and international markets.
Authentic has several deals in the pipeline with some of the industry’s top players, and is targeting significant growth via cross-continental expansion during the year while also working with its current partners to offer a more bespoke product and service to the existing clientele.
Podhorska brings nearly a decade of experience to the table, having spent three years at NetEnt and prior to that five years at Gaming Laboratories International.
She has a comprehensive understanding of compliance, licensing and regulation, as well as experience in establishing successful business in newly regulated markets such as Spain, Bulgaria, Romania, Czech Republic and Portugal.
Jonas Delin, managing director at Authentic Gaming, said: “Hiring Magdalena is a major coup for us. She understands the barriers suppliers face when entering new markets, and most importantly how to overcome them.
“She is also highly skilled when it comes to forming and shaping new key partnerships in international markets that are aligned with the interests of the company, and will play a central role in growing the Authentic Gaming business.
“I’d like to take the chance to welcome her to the team, and look forward to achieving great things together.”
Magdalena Podhorska, head of sales and B2B marketing at Authentic Gaming, said: “I am delighted to join Authentic Gaming at such an exciting time for the business and the wider live casino industry.
“The team at Authentic are passionate, committed and true pioneers in the live dealer space, and I can’t wait to help drive the business forwards into new markets.”
The supplier’s flagship Authentic Roulette product streams live from tables located on the floors of real casinos the world over; it means the tables are real, the croupiers are real, the cards and chips are real and, most importantly, the other players are real.
The footage is captured via discreet HD cameras located above the wheel and around the table and is streamed to Authentic’s network of B2B online casino clients, which include the Kindred Group, LeoVegas, Unibet and MariaCasino.com.
