In his new role, Jerram will support Sportingtech with the roll-out of its online casino and sportsbook offerings with clients in emerging and recently regulated markets.

Jerram will also work on optimising Sportingtech’s flagship Quantum platform, which provides end-users with an optimised betting experience, offering access to over 65 sports, 9,000 games and over 1,000 betting markets. 

He joins the business after five years with Sporting Group, most recently serving as head of internal audits and standards. 

Jerram also has experience of regulation within financial services, having both advised and supported a range of organisations during regulatory regime changes.

“I’m delighted to be joining Sportingtech, particularly in the run-up to the World Cup,” Jerram said. “It’s all hands on deck and a deeply exciting time and I can’t wait to help maximise the gains we secure from a compliance perspective as the company continues to expand at pace.

“Sportingtech has clearly built up a great deal of momentum in recent months and I expect the next phase of the company’s development to be extremely busy and gratifying.”

Sportingtech managing director Bobby Longhurst added: “As the opportunities in emerging and regulating markets continue to abound, it’s never been more important for operators to have a firm grasp on the nuances of compliance within these jurisdictions as they continue to evolve.

“With that in mind, we couldn’t be happier to welcome Paul to the team, whose background is exactly what we need to continue to navigate the choppy and changing waters of compliance along with our operating partners.”

The appointment of Jerram follows a series of recent senior hires at Sportingtech, including Tommy Molloy as its new chief sportsbook officer earlier this month and Longhurst as managing director in July.
