BtoBet appoints new MD and COO

| By Conor Mulheir
Sportsbook platform provider BtoBet has appointed Zoran Spasov as its permanent managing director and Dima Redierman as its chief operating officer.

Spasov had been the supplier’s interim managing director since December 2019, and will now take on the role on a permanent basis. He has previously held several executive positions, including chief executive, at other companies with links to the igaming business

“I am very excited about the multitude of opportunities that lie ahead for BtoBet,” he said.

“In the past year alone, the company has proven its resilience despite external pressures, and I have no doubt BtoBet will continue to establish itself as a major player in the industry.’’

Dima Reiderman, meanwhile, joins BtoBet as chief operating officer from the supplier’s parent company, Aspire Global. Reiderman served as Aspire’s chief operating officer for more than two years.

The supplier said Reiderman has played an integral role in the growth and success of Aspire Global during his seven-year tenure with the company.

Reiderman said: ‘’My main aim is to not only ensure that BtoBet excels with its sportsbook product in new markets but to maintain leading positions in emerging markets such as Africa and Latin America.”

BtoBet was acquired by industry supplier Aspire Global in September 2020, in a deal worth €20m (£17.5m/$24.0m).

Aspire’s chief executive Tsachi Maimon said the acquisition meant the business would be involved in all major areas of online gambling, thanks to access to BtoBet’s Neuron 3 sports betting platform.

Commenting on BtoBet’s new appointments, Maimon said: “Zoran and Dima’s addition to BtoBet’s top management is intended to maintain the company’s current growth momentum and aggressively expand its technologies into new markets, with Europe and the US being high on the agenda.”

“I am more than confident that Zoran and Dima will be an invaluable asset for BtoBet in executing the company’s vision.”

The supplier signed a number of high-profile supply deals in 2020, including with operators William Hill and Betfair, both of which entered into the Colombian igaming market in early 2021.
