Asian-based game distributor QTech Games has announced the appointment of Markus Nasholm as Global CEO as the company seeks to extend its presence and influence across the industry.
Nasholm joins QTech Games after successful stints at Bet24 and the casino and sports affiliate Catena Media, where he filled a range of senior roles, having taken the reins as Chief Financial Officer in 2016.
A Chartered Accountant and MBA, Nasholm will be based in Manila and will be tasked with overseeing QTech’s expansion into breakout territories including Latin America and Africa over the next 12 months.
“We’re thrilled to have installed Markus at the helm of the QTech team for 2019 and beyond,” QTech said in a statement. “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.”
