PressEnter Group recruits gaming and finance veteran Qurban Hussain as CFO
Online casino operator PressEnter Group has hired finance specialist and gaming industry executive Qurban Hussain as its new chief financial officer (CFO).
Hussain has held several roles relating to finance and gaming throughout his career, most recently as director of commercial finance and insight at German sports betting operator Tipico.
He was also a director of Zeal International and head of corporate finance and group treasury for lottery specialist Zeal Group, having previously held senior positions at gaming technology provider Probability, Flutter Entertainment-owned exchange brand Betfair and UK bookmaker William Hill.
Malta-based PressEnter Group, which operates online brands including 21.com, JustSpin and UltraCasino, said the business will leverage Hussain’s experience in working for fast-growth, regulated gaming companies that have disrupted the market.
Hussain will support PressEnter CEO Lahcene Merzoug and the rest of the company’s C-suite and will help drive the group’s strategic aims, especially with regards to potential M&A.
“Qurban is a finance powerhouse and also a great cultural fit for our organisation,” said Merzoug. “Being able to leverage his experience of working with tier one operators will be a major resource for us as we continue to deploy our own growth plans.
“We have built an incredible company culture at PressEnter Group that allows all members of the team to excel and thrive and not only will Qurban help deliver this culture to the finance team, I believe he too will benefit from the environment we have created.”
Hussain added: “I am truly excited to join PressEnter Group at this time and look forward to working with the team to help deliver on the next phase of the journey to becoming a true market leader.
“I see the appointment as an excellent opportunity to use my skills and be a part of a fast-growing, innovative company.”
Earlier this month, PressEnter announced it would begin targeting the fast-growing Spanish and Latam markets, with the hire of former Betsson executive David Plumi.
