Fast-moving, Asia-focused distributor appoints Markus Nasholm to expand global footprint

QTech Games, Asia’s fastest-growing games distributor, has appointed Markus Nasholm to the new role of Global CEO, as it seeks to extend its presence and influence across the industry.

Nasholm has recently arrived at QTech Games after successful stints at Bet24 (part of the Kindred Group) and the casino and sports affiliate, Catena Media. There, he routinely proved himself across a suite of senior roles, having taken the reins as Chief Financial Officer in 2016. Showcasing a series of core capacities, from managing finance projects (featuring an IPO / listing on Nasdaq Stockholm Mid-Cap market) to broader international finance planning, Nasholm quickly established himself as a rising star of igaming.

Equally adept in the key domains of Corporate Development and M&A, this Chartered Accountant and MBA is well-equipped to oversee a brand’s maturation throughout worldwide markets, emerging or established, with a keen eye for global strategy.

Now Nasholm brings all his expertise and 15-plus years of industry experience to bear at one of the world’s leading online gaming platforms, based in the gaming mecca of Manila. Having already secured its status as the number-one aggregator in Asia, QTech Games has tasked Nasholm with replicating those gains across breakout territories, like LatAm and Africa, over the year ahead.

The Board of QTech Games issued a statement saying: “We’re thrilled to have installed Markus at the helm of the QTech team for 2019 and beyond. 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.”

Nasholm himself added: “It’s a hugely exciting time to be taking on this new challenge alongside a few of the brightest minds in the industry, coupled to some of the most pioneering technology. After a successful 2018 of double-digit growth, enhancing the speed and performance of all games on its platform, QTech has careered into the industry consciousness with a series of new deals and innovative tools.

“Just take the landmark launch of our new campaign tool in Q4 2018 that will enable operators to run campaigns across the entire QTech portfolio. Such is the collective quality and passion of the team – from our machine-learning software to our targeted departments for Africa and Latin America – the distributional scope is there to facilitate QTech Games’ transition into one of the largest providers of digital entertainment around.”

 

About QTech Games:

Mobile games provide the central focus of the company, which is premised on a fully-owned and customised technical platform that affords games providers and operators the fastest, most effortless integration on the market.

After starting out as an affiliate in 2009 and developing some recognized review portals, I have moved deeper into journalism and media. My experience has lead me to move into the B2B sector and write about compliance updates and report around the happenings of the online and land based gaming sector.

Australia-based Silver Heritage Group has successfully completed the negotiation of a $5.2m settlement with the owner of the Phoenix International Club in Vietnam. The company had to go for settlement after its recent closure owing to complications with its investment certificate.

The settlement will be paid in two instalments and represents about two years of expected EBITDA contributions from Phoenix. Silver Heritage expects to record a loss on disposal of about $1.2m, related to the remaining unamortised value of the entertainment services agreement with the club, the transfer of assets and shutdown costs.

Silver Heritage said it views the settlement as “generally favourable,” given the recent underperformance of the club and the uncertainty regarding its Investment certificate and whether it will be amended to allow table games.
