Fast-growing company attracts new recruits from Entain, Meta and Flutter

Affiliate and white label operator QiH Group has announced the appointment of three new members in its UK team as it seeks to drive further expansion of the business.

The first of the trio of new hires is Stergios Titos, who took up the role of paid social lead in mid-August. He joined the company after four years at Entain, where he was digital acquisition manager working across brands such as Bwin. Prior to that, he was at STech Technology.

The second is Jane Sumbilla, who joined in August as talent acquisition lead. Jane’s most recent post was at Meta, where she worked as a recruiter for just over a year after joining from language learning platform Busuu.

Finally, Max Ciliberto began at QiH this week as head of PPC. Ciliberto has close to 15 years’ experience in the gaming industry, having most recently worked at Flutter. He joined Flutter when it acquired The Stars Group, where he had been working since 2013. His first role at that company was as PPC and paid social manager, and during his decade at the firm he worked his way up to senior paid search team lead.

Jamie Walters, CEO at QiH Group, said: “We’re really delighted to have such high-calibre candidates joining our team. It’s a strong reflection of the company’s growth that we are able to attract so many strong hires.

“We have achieved sufficient scale to attract the likes of Stergios, Jane and Max, and the growth potential we have ahead of us is getting great people excited about joining our team.”

Walters said Sumbilla’s remit would include ensuring the company brings on board more similar recruits.

“Jane has been brought in to facilitate our headcount expansion, which we are expecting to continue for the next two years as we drive our business forward,” he said.

Commenting on her appointment, Jane Sumbilla said: “I was impressed by QiH’s strong emphasis on values and culture and I’m keen to make sure these are effectively communicated to other potential new hires.”

On the other new recruits, Walters said: “Paid media is growing very fast for us and both Stergios and Max will help drive the expansion even further, enabling scalable and sustainable sources of traffic that will allow us to grow both internationally and in terms of verticals. We want to expand the sport side of our business and we are also keen to explore the possibility of entering new jurisdictions in future.”

Stergios Titos said: “I’m really excited to be heading up QiH Group’s paid social team. The company already has a strong focus on this area but I believe with a new structure and strategy in place, we can leverage this channel much further.”

Max Ciliberto added. “QiH has experienced strong growth in recent years and I’m extremely pleased to be joining such a fast-growing company. I’m looking forward to using my experience to improve its growth trajectory even further.”

Affiliate website MightyTips and betting platform Marathonbet are entering into a new partnership that covers the Brazilian market to dominate the booming iGaming scene.

This strategic partnership will help Marathonbet to skyrocket its presence in the giant South American country with a population of over 215 million, boosting acquisition numbers in an increasingly competitive market.

A recent report by SOFTSWISS estimated that Brazilians participating in sports betting-related activity and online casinos in 2022 exceeded 46%.

The report also suggested the sports betting market in Brazil is significantly larger than that of online casinos. It is with these figures in mind that Marathonbet will seek to capitalise on.

Eugene Ravdin, MightyTips Communications and Marketing Manager said: “Marathonbet is one of the biggest names in betting. Its long and storied evolution from the beginning of iGaming is incredible and we can’t wait to work alongside them.”
