Spanish trade association Jdigital has appointed Andrea Vota as its new director general.
Vota is a consultant specialising in political stakeholder management and corporate communications. He has formerly worked for international Public Affairs firm Political Intelligence and as public affairs lead for German professional IT services provider CIRC.
“I am very grateful to Jdigital for their confidence and I am very happy to be able to bring my knowledge and experience to the association at such a sensitive time for the sector,” Vota said.
“The online gaming industry faces significant challenges for its survival, and that is why we at Jdigital will be fighting with all the resources available to improve any senseless decision that could harm a safe and fully regulated industry. avoiding the further destruction of jobs at a time of economic crisis like the one we live in.”
Vota will support Jdigital President Mikel López de Torre, representing the Spanish online gambling industry amid a changing regulatory landscape.
“We have a fundamental challenge that is to protect the reputation of a self-regulated sector, which thanks to new technologies offers guarantees to users, consumers and, above all, to the vulnerable population,” Vota concluded.
