The company has achieved significant growth in recent years to become a leading player in the B2B wagering technology sector across the world and I have been impressed by the management’s vision and strategy. The company is ambitious and clearly well-positioned to execute on the next phases of growth.” 

Giles will be paid as an Australian-based Non-Executive Director with an annual salary of AU$100,000 (US$71,800).
