Gaming systems and software provider GameAccount Network has appointed Iain Starks as its new software architect in order to meet the “high levels” of demand from clients requiring the company’s online gaming platform services.

A veteran software developer of more than thirty years, Starks has previously held leading roles for a number of companies including William Hill.

GameAccount said that the appointed comes as the company prepares for significant growth in its platform services division.

GameAccount CEO Dermot Smurfit described his appointment as “putting in place the human scale” to manage GameAccount’s online gaming system targeted at newly-regulated markets, which he said was now “fully documented and scale-tested”.

“Our platform services division is experiencing high levels of demand in 2013 from corporate clients requiring a mature Internet Gaming System for newly regulated Internet gaming markets worldwide,” Smurfit explained.

“We are delighted to welcome Iain into the critical growth-role of Software Architect bringing his thirty years of experience in software architecture and nearly two decades of java development experience to the benefit of our corporate clientele.”

Starks added he was “delighted” to join the company and tackle “the diverse challenges posed by regulated internet gaming markets”.

“GameAccount Network already has an excellent and well-earned track record in technical capability and availability, which I acknowledge and look forward to furthering,” he said.

His appointment follows that of Julius Patta, CTO of GameAccount’s content distribution partner Aristocrat, who joined the supplier in May as president of its North American division.
