In his new role, Barra will be tasked with overseeing Altenar’s expansion across northern Europe and other emerging markets.
Barra joins Altenar after almost five years with Together Gaming, where he spent over three years as its chief operating officer. He also served as key account manager for just under two years.
Prior to this, he was chief operating officer and partner at the Eligence Consulting Group, while he also had a spell as operations manager for ArenaCube.
“I am really happy to join Altenar in my new role; I have worked in the igaming field for nearly a decade now, so am well-equipped to assist the company in its efforts for continued expansion,” Barra said.
“I can bring a good operational knowledge in terms of both operating a platform and establishing the connections necessary to run a successful business in the casino and sportsbook industries.”
A spokesperson at Altenar added: “Utilising his years of experience in the igaming industry, Antonino is sure to prove vital in developing effective growth strategies for us to implement over the coming years.
“Altenar has built up a lot of momentum in recent months, and the addition of Antonino will only serve to accelerate that.”
The appointment comes after Altenar in August secured a licence to operate in Ontario, in a move that marked its entrance into the North American market.
