BMM, the world's leading testing, inspection and certification lab, announced today that Mr. Gene Chayevsky has been promoted to President and Chief Financial Officer for BMM International, reporting to CEO Martin Storm.
Chayevsky has led a significant growth period in BMM's European businesses ably supported by Marzia Turrini. His regional leadership accelerated growth at BMM Spain and BMM Italy which are now market leading gaming labs across land-based and iGaming services. BMM Romania and BMM Poland are doing very well in the field compliance services sector, and BMM South America continues to grow.
Chayevsky has shown a strong understanding of the core BMM business, its development, its opportunities, and economics. Reporting to Chayevsky in his new role will be the executives of the core regional operating businesses, Group Finance and two new sector adjacencies.
Chayevsky has been with BMM for three years and prior to that was the CEO of Cadillac Jack (now part of AGS), a private equity executive, and investment banker for Morgan Stanley. He has strong financial capabilities as well as business development skills.
BMM CEO Martin Storm said, "In line with our objective of developing executive leadership internally at BMM, it is with pleasure that I announce the promotion of Gene to this key leadership role at BMM, including an Executive Director position on the board of directors of BMM International. He has worked incredibly hard at BMM over three years, transforming the European business into an emerging powerhouse within BMM and the market. I look forward to working closely with Gene, gaining his insights, and continuing our rapid growth towards market leadership in the test labs segment worldwide."
Storm added, "Gene's executive replacement in Europe and South America is Marzia Turrini, who provides the important leadership continuity that BMM, its clients, regulators and the markets are looking for. Marzia, like Travis Foley, Kirk White and Gene, has developed her leadership skills more fully at BMM by building new businesses successfully, and managing existing ones. I am proud of her progress and success. I am blessed to have such talent, commitment and integrity in this business leadership group."
Chayevsky concluded, "I am excited to take on this new global role at BMM and to work more closely with such an inspirational leader as Storm. The next phase of BMM's growth is in our core testing and certification business as well as our new exciting business adjacencies, such as cybersecurity. I am very proud of the work that our European and South American teams have done over the past several years and am confident that under Marzia's leadership, we will continue to meet the many challenges that still remain, as our European business continues its rapid growth. I look forward to working more closely with Travis and Kirk to support the next phase of our development in the North American, Asian and African markets."
