Aspire Global’s Pariplay has appointed Matthew Kelemen as its new Business Development Director for North America, becoming the supplier’s first US-based employee.
With more than 23 years of igaming experience, Kelemen has previously held senior roles at companies including Boss Media, RealTime Gaming, and Peak Interactive. He will be tasked with furthering Pariplay’s presence in North America.
Commenting on his new appointment, Kelemen said: “The direction Pariplay is traveling is clear and extremely exciting, and I’m thrilled to join the team. We’re already making waves in the US and Canada and I look forward to adding value to the company and bringing my expertise to the wider team as we expand.”
North America is a major focal point for Pariplay as it continues to grow its presence across regulated jurisdictions. The supplier currently holds licenses in New Jersey, West Virginia, and Michigan, and it recently entered into Alberta, Canada, via a partnership with NeoPollard Interactive.
Kelemen’s appointment will play a part in Pariplay’s long-term goal of expanding the reach of its Fusion platform to become a leading content supplier in North America.
Adrian Bailey, Managing Director at Pariplay, stated: “We’ve made great strides in the United States and Canada in the past year, and we’re delighted to strengthen our footprint thereby welcoming Matthew to the team.
“As an experienced executive in our targeted markets, he brings a wealth of competence and it will prove invaluable as we continue our growth trajectory.
Earlier this year, Pariplay strengthened its presence in the US after signing a multi-state distribution agreement with Golden Nugget Online Gaming.
