Malta-based live casino specialist Authentic Gaming has strengthened its management team with the appointment of Melvin Hulleman as head of account management and Magdalena Podhorska-Okolow as chief commercial officer.

Hulleman joins the supplier from Betsson Group where he served for nearly ten years, rising from customer service agent to managing director.

In his new role at Authentic, he will be responsible for driving growth and executing key strategic goals. Hulleman takes over from Podhorska-Okolow, who has been promoted to chief commercial officer, where she will play a more direct role in the commercial side of the business.

“As we scale up our product and service offering and continue to rapidly move through our roadmap, the company needs strong leadership within the commercial team and Melvin and Magdalena will provide this,” said Authentic Gaming CEO Jonas Delin.

“We want to execute our growth plans successfully but also want to ensure that our partners are properly looked after and receive the attention and support they deserve. This will allow them to grow with us as the popularity of live roulette continues to rise.”

Following his appointment, Hulleman commented: “I am honoured to join the talented Authentic Gaming team and look forward to working with their operator partners closely as the business continues to evolve and grow.”

Podhorska-Okolow added: “I am thrilled to have been promoted to the position of chief commercial officer and I am excited by the challenge of playing a more direct role in the future of the Authentic Gaming business.”
