Salsa Technology has appointed André Filipe Neves as its new COO to spearhead the company’s next extensive growth stage.
Mr Neves has over 20 years’ experience as a technology and operations manager and 15 of those have been spent within the iGaming, banking and insurance sectors. He joins Salsa from iGaming consultancy Kik Agency, while his other core strengths include information architecture, programming, project management and analytics.
His success in helping brands expand into new regulated territories like Brazil, Malta and Portugal will prove a vital asset as Salsa continues to increase its ascendancy within the LatAm region and Europe following its MGA licence.
Commenting on the appointment, Mr Neves said: “Salsa has established itself as a dominant force within the iGaming space thanks to its standout iGaming solution and I am thrilled to have the chance to help the company deliver on its aspiring business goals.”
As COO, he is responsible for overseeing the core technology disciplines of the business. These include platform development, content and infrastructure, as well as the Operations area, with an emphasis on customer relations, marketing and new business development.
Salsa Technology will be at this year’s Brazilian iGaming Summit (BiS) where Mr Neves, amongst other staff, will be presenting details about its ‘Brazil-ready’ iGaming solution.
“Andre is already having a positive impact on the company’s business as the team works hard to deliver on Salsa’s ambitious growth targets across both Latam and the European market”, said company founder Peter Nolte.
“On top of that, his experience inspires people and way of dealing with the team members has brought a lot of excitement to our already highly engaged employees”, concluded Eliane Nunes, Salsa’s head of marketing and communications.
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
