| By Robert Fletcher
Epic Risk Management has announced the appointment of Teresa Fiore to the position of vice-president for partnerships.
In her new role, Fiore will work directly with Epic partners to help minimise harm across all forms of gambling. She also takes a place on the gambling harm minimisation consultancy’s senior management team.
Fiore joins Epic after a spell as manager of responsible gambling and CSR at PointsBet. Here, she developed a responsible gambling programme across 14 US states and Ontario for the operator’s sportsbook and online casino.
Prior to this, Fiore served as programme manager of research and responsible gaming for the Massachusetts Gaming Commission.
Before joining the gambling industry, Fiore also spent time working with Envirosell and Verité.
“I’m very excited to start as the VP of partnerships, overseeing the growth in the US market, which is obviously a huge opportunity for Epic,” Fiore said.
“I have known and think very highly of the Epic team for a number of years. We are very much aligned in our thinking and approach to safer gambling.”
Epic CEO Paul Buck added: “This appointment is a key marker of the expansion that Epic continues to make within the US.
“We’re delighted to bring Teresa’s extensive knowledge and vital experience into our organisation. We value the perspective that she can bring from both a regulatory and industry angle.”
