Jade said: ‘It is a privilege to be appointed to the position of Managing Director, especially at such an exciting point in our journey. Having been involved in the sector for the last 12 years, in May we will reach our one-year anniversary as Amber Gaming and what we have achieved under Ted’s stewardship as a team is nothing short of phenomenal. On behalf of the whole team, I would like to wish Ted all the best in his new role with the wider Group. I will be starting my new journey with the support of 33 talented peers who are each instrumental to our success, and with the appointment of 10 new recruits to support our growing international business, with many exciting plans on the horizon.
Despite global circumstances, there continues to be a growing demand for our services, and this provides us with continued optimism for the outlook of the gaming sector. I look forward to building on our current success using our established values and excellent service delivery to exceed the demands and expectations of both our clients and team.’
Ted added: ‘Jade is the ideal person to take the helm and drive our team forward. She has grown with the business since she joined us over five years ago and she truly embodies our culture of energy, passion and ambition in everything she does.
