Neves arrives at the Latin America- and Europe-focused tech solutions supplier with more than 20 years’ experience as a technology and operations manager within the igaming, banking and insurance sectors. Most recently he worked for igaming consultancy Kik Agency.
Salsa said that Neves’ success in helping brands expand into new regulated territories like Brazil, Malta and Portugal will prove a vital asset as the business pursues expansion in Latin America and Europe after it was recently awarded its B2B licence by the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA).
Neves said: “Salsa has established itself as a dominant force within the igaming space thanks to its standout igaming solution and I am thrilled to have the chance to help the company deliver on its aspiring business goals.”
As chief operating officer, Neves will be responsible for overseeing the core technology disciplines of the business. These include platform development, content and infrastructure, as well as the operations area, with an emphasis on customer relations, marketing and new business development.
“Andre is already having a positive impact on the company’s business as the team works hard to deliver on Salsa’s ambitious growth targets across both LatAm and the European market,” said Peter Nolte, Salsa’s founder.
