In his new role, Azzopardi will be responsible for coordinating and optimising product delivery, client launches and geographical expansion.
Azzopardi has more than 22 years of experience of working in IT professional services, digital product development and commercial delivery, and joins Swintt after a spell as commercial operations director at Quickspin.
He also spent time as solutions manager and technical account management at Quickspin, prior to which he was product manager for gaming at Betsson for three years.
Before entering the gambling industry, Azzopardi was project team leader at KPMG for 16-and-a-half years.
“Swintt’s rapid expansion means I’ll be joining the company at an exciting time and I’m looking forward to delivering strong growth for Swintt and its customers,” Azzopardi said.
Swintt chief executive David Flynn added: “Etienne is one of the most experienced and skilled executives in the industry and his knowledge and understanding of product development and commercial delivery will be vital to Swintt as we continue to grow at pace.
“This is only possible because of the phenomenal team we have built and in Etienne we have someone who fits perfectly with our culture and wider ambition to become a tier one game provider for operators in markets around the world.”
Azzopardi’s appointment marks the latest senior hire at Swintt, with the provider in June having also named Tereza Melicharkova as head of marketing and David Flood as its new chief technology officer.
Last month, Swintt was also approved to offer its content portfolio in Sweden after securing certification from the Swedish Gambling Authority.
