James Jones on Monday announced that he has been named chief commercial officer at Malta-based iGaming company OnAir Entertainment.
He joins following five years at Evolution, during which time he served as head of business development and business development manager – Europe. His time at the company came to an end last January, after which he proceeded to take a short break before embarking on his new chapter at OnAir Entertainment, which at the time he only hinted as a “very exciting” company.
Prior to that he also had experiences as Business Development Manager of iGaming firm NetEnt’s NetEnt Live brand, Casino Floor Manager at Olympic Entertainment Group’s Casino Malta, and over two years as Operations Manager at J&B Poker Lounges and Mobile Casino, aside from other roles within the industry.
Established in 2020, OnAir Entertainment is a live casino studio company that is licensed and headquartered in Malta. Over the years it has experienced “rapid growth” that enabled it to also expand into a modern studio in Riga, Latvia, and then later in Bucharest, Romania. It describes itself as the “global innovator of choice for tailored live casino experiences”. Last January, OnAir Entertainment partnered with LeoVegas Group, giving players access to the former’s entire games portfolio.
He will help support the handover to Platform & Sportsbook CEO Richard Carter and provide ongoing support to the board of directors until the year end
