Leading developer of premium live dealer solutions, Authentic Gaming, has announced the appointment of Oliver Reid as Chief Operating Officer. With more than twenty years of experience in the industry under his belt, Reid is expected to play a key role in the company’s expansion into regulated markets worldwide.
Former Head Of Evolution’s Vancouver Studio Oliver Reid Joins Authentic Gaming As COO
Seasoned Industry Player
Reid, a true industry veteran with more than two decades in senior positions within the gambling sector, was not a random choice to reinforce the supplier’s management team – in his rich career, Reid held decision-making roles at Evolution Gaming and Asper Group, being also Group Analytics Director at Olympic Entertainment Group.
Over the years…
…he has been involved in different spheres of operations, working across online, live dealer, land-based areas, as well as business intelligence and product development. At Evolution, he was responsible for the opening of Vancouver and New Jersey studios, and for the company’s expansion into both markets.
As COO for the live roulette specialist, Reid will be in charge of boosting the customer onboarding process and strengthening the customer operations departments to secure an off-the-charts service and further studio growth.
Jonas Delin, CEO of Authentic, said:
“I’m very pleased to bolster what is already an incredibly strong management team. Authentic Gaming has a “player first” mentality and this, coupled with Oliver’s 20 years’ experience in Land-Based and Online live table gaming operations, we will be ideally placed to further enhance, and optimise the overall player experience.”
Excited To Be Back To Live Dealer Sector
Created by LeoVegas, Authentic Gaming was acquired by the Genting Group in October 2019 for €15 million. AG’s ever-growing client base can brag of some most prominent names in iGaming including such famous online casinos like Betsson, MrGreen, 1xBet and at the end of June, the brand secured a strategic partnership with 888.
Commenting on his new appointment, Reid said:
“I’m excited to be returning to the live casino sector with Authentic Gaming. The company has a great team and has always found a way to differentiate and lead the market in creating the most authentic experience for retail to online play.
He also added:
“Operators and players are appreciating the entertainment experience live casino has to offer and I’m looking forward to supporting the growth strategies of online gaming for all of our partners.”
