Award-winning network solutions provider Continent 8 Technologies is driving further expansion into the U.S. market with the appointment of Chad Ives as Sales Director. He will be responsible for increasing brand awareness and sales, predominantly in the North American iGaming market, but also working alongside a global sales team. Besides, he will use his skills and expertise to help Continent 8 develop into new sectors, such as financial services and healthcare, as part of wider growth plans for the business.
Previously, Ives served as Cloud Services Consultant at Rapid Scale. He has also held roles at technology companies such as Navisite and Softchoice.
About this announcement, Nick Nally, Managing Director Americas, Continent 8, said: “I would like to welcome Chad to the team and look forward to working closely with him as we continue to expand into the North American market. We connect, manage and secure a vital part of any online gambling operation, whether for a European company looking to enter the U.S. market or an American company making a play online for the first time via our 60+ connected locations. In Chad, we have someone with unrivalled understanding and experience. He will undoubtedly be able to drive brand awareness and also help us enter new sectors and markets.”
On his new job, Ives commented: “The last five or six years of my career have been devoted to helping customers cut through the noise of complex technology decisions that come with regulation, compliance and data security. This puts me in a strong position to help online gambling companies find the solutions that best meet their needs, as the U.S. market continues to grow. I will also be able to help Continent 8 expand its reach into new industries and look forward to playing a part in driving this innovative and exciting business forward.”
