Provider of regulatory and technical compliance services for the betting and gaming industry Maxima Compliance announced today two new senior hires to its ranks, Andrew Burgoyne filling the Head of Regulatory position and Mike de Graaff joining as the firm’s Regional Compliance Manager for the Netherlands.
International Talent Applied Locally
New Maxima Compliance additions Burgoyne and de Graaff underline the company’s global approach to recruiting local talent, looking to provide better services to international partners by offering them on-the-ground knowledge and expertise.
Delighted to welcome Burgoyne and de Graaff, Maxima Compliance chief executive officer Antonio Zanghi explained the basics of the company’s core recruitment strategy.
“We are focused on both expanding our global team of regulatory and technical compliance experts, while also adding regional managers who can deliver local knowledge and support directly to clients,” Zanghi noted, pointing to the “benefits of this approach” Maxima partners around the world already enjoy.
New hires Burgoyne and de Graaff bring invaluable industry experience to the company, acquired while serving in similar roles at established gaming industry brands.
Burgoyne joins Maxima after more than three years as Head of Risk at global gambling group Flutter Entertainment. Before joining FTSE100-listed Flutter, he served at Sky and the Advertising Standards Authority. At his new company, Burgoyne will be stationed at Maxima’s headquarters in London.
“It is a pleasure to join a team with unparalleled expertise across compliance. Maxima is already assisting some of the biggest names in gaming with their regulatory compliance needs, and I look forward to further raising the bar for our partners when it comes to this critical business function.”
