Falcon will focus on continuing to expand Moobifun’s presence in its core African market, as well as expanding into other territories and establishing relationships with new commercial partners.
He takes on the new role having most recently served as managing director of MindTheGap consultancy, a digital strategy consultancy that he founded.
Prior to this, Falcon spent time working as MMD South Europe for The Stars Group, while his other positions in the igaming industry included chief development officer for Chilipoker and managing director of iGamingFrance.com.
In addition, Falcon had a spell as French markets managing director for Full Tilt and Pocket Kings, as well as French-speaking areas managing director for Unibet.
“I’m honoured to join Moobifun as CEO and cannot wait to get working on elevating the company to even greater heights,” Falcon said. “Moobifun has rightly earned a stellar reputation thanks to its unrivalled localised knowledge of the African gaming space.
“An ability to anticipate and meet the needs of gaming, telecom operators and regulators has been achieved through its proprietary technological services.
Moobifun co-founder Santiago Mosquera added: “After co-founding and building Moobifun over a 13-year period, I feel it is the right time to pass the reins to Jerome to steer the business through the next hugely exciting chapter.
“The company is in a terrific position of strength following the private investment raised and is a true leader in gaming technology solutions in Africa. Jérôme has a wealth of experience from his ante and post-regulation career in mature markets, as well as his achievements with premium gaming operators like Unibet, Ladbrokes and Stars Group.”
