Di Chio spent nine years at Kambi, where he held various senior legal and compliance positions, eventually rising to the role of SVP of Legal, Regulatory Affairs and Compliance, as well as Group Deputy General Counsel.
Max Meltzer, CEO of Strive Gaming, underscored the significance of having a team of seasoned specialists to navigate the rapidly evolving legal and regulatory landscape in North America. Meltzer argues that Di Chio’s appointment is expected to fortify Strive Gaming’s position as a leading player account management (PAM) provider in North America.
In addition to this appointment, Strive Gaming has previously undertaken several initiatives to bolster its presence in the North American gaming market.
For example, the company entered into a product partnership with Chalkline Sports, providing customers with freeplay games that serve as acquisition and retention tools. This partnership is aimed at addressing the challenges of customer acquisition and retention.
Furthermore, Strive Gaming appointed Jamie Shea as Chief Marketing Officer, leveraging her experience at DraftKings, where she played a crucial role in driving growth following the repeal of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA). Her role at Strive Gaming encompasses managing all B2B marketing activities and overseeing internal and external communications.
Also, Andrew Holmes was appointed as Strive Gaming’s COO in 2022, bringing over two decades of experience in banking, eCommerce and B2C gaming. His role focuses on developing the company’s real money iGaming platform and preparing for future regulatory changes in the US and Canada.
Expanding on these developments, Strive Gaming entered into partnerships with Paysafe and Golden Nugget Online Gaming (GNOG). The collaboration with Paysafe enables Strive Gaming to integrate payment solutions into its platform. This partnership extends to GNOG, where Strive Gaming’s Player Account Management system powers GNOG’s online sportsbook launches in Arizona and Ontario, pending legislative and regulatory approvals.
