OCR Labs Global, a world leader in digital ID verification, has appointed Fiona Davies as Head of Gaming to lead their strategy of focusing on improving the verification experience and fraud prevention in this vertical. Davies joins with over 15 years of experience across startups through leading commercial teams in large corporations and over seven years of extensive knowledge of the Know Your Customer (KYC), Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Identity Verification (IDV) landscape.

OCR Labs Global solves major challenges, including identity fraud and regulatory compliance, using its proprietary technology. With unrivaled identity document coverage and industry leading biometric technology there is a huge opportunity to improve onboarding in the gambling industry.

During her time at Acuris Risk Intelligence, Davies was responsible for the Gambling and Sales divisions, where she gained extensive knowledge of the landscape surrounding regulated markets and insights into making these processes more efficient. Before this role, she spent 10 years as Commercial Director for global B2B events, driving launch events at the EMAP in South America and supporting high-growth tech companies such as Google and Intel to win commercial traction in emerging markets.

Fiona Davies, newly appointed Head of Gaming for OCR Labs Global, comments: “My first introduction to Gambling was at ICE, where I was instantly fascinated by this high-growth vertical and its complexity from a regulatory standpoint. I am passionate about working with clients and offering them real solutions that will add value across the board.

Davies continued, “I am excited to build out the Gambling division at OCR Labs Global offering operators products that underpin this strict regulatory environment whilst not impinging on user experience. With such a stand-out product offering, joining them was an easy decision to make. I plan to be a real evangelist and work with operators, platforms and partners to introduce improvements that make a real difference to the verification experience, the bottom line and fraud prevention.”

“With a 100 percent automated product that helps onboard players faster and at the same time stops fraud, I know it is the right time to get passionate about making real improvements in the Gambling industry.”

Russ Cohn, General Manager International for OCR Labs Global, added, “OCR Labs Global is committed to bringing our technology to Gambling operators and their users worldwide. We are a real force multiplier for the industry, with our fully automated and user friendly and reliable ID verification process dramatically speeding up user onboarding. We welcome Fiona’s industry experience and ability to leverage our solution and elevate our efforts in Gambling. We are confident that her expertise will support global operators to take advantage of this excellent growth opportunity.”

OCR Labs Global is already supporting clients across many industries, including governments, crypto and a variety of platform-based businesses, such as SaaS providers. Customers include Cognito, HSBC, Reed, Coinmetro and many other customers and partners.

UK fans are now able to get even more involved with OKTAGON MMA, after news broke that fans can bet on Europe’s leading MMA promotion with SkyBet.

Although fans can already bet in the UK via William Hill, the move to SkyBet opens up the market even further for fans wishing to get involved with the action.

OKTAGON has made significant strides to get more involved with its ever-growing UK fanbase, with the first ever show on these shores in November 2023 at the AO Arena in Manchester.

On the back of that success, OKTAGON returned twice in 2024; the first coming at the Utilita Arena in Newcastle in January, before an enthralling night at the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham in April.

OKTAGON MMA co-owner Pavol Neruda commented: “We are really pleased that our fanbase in the UK and Ireland can now engage even further with OKTAGON MMA.

“SkyBet is an extremely well-respected platform, and this exemplifies the growth of OKTAGON MMA in the UK and Ireland, a market where we have dedicated significant effort to expand, and shine a light on up-and-coming MMA talent.”

UK fans can place their first bet via SkyBet for the next OKTAGON tournament, when the organisation lands in Prague at the spectacular Fortuna Arena for OKTAGON 58 for the blockbuster rematch between Karlos Vemola and Attila Vegh in front of 27,000 fans.
