QTech Games, the number-one games distributor across Asia and all emerging markets, has appointed Daniel Long to the role of Chief Commercial Officer (CCO).
Long is possessed of a wealth of international expertise within business development and sales, and has recently been providing strategic advice and consultancy to both B2B and B2C companies trying to navigate the competitive igaming landscape in Asia via his own Management Consultancy Services. Previously, Long served with distinction at CCO for both RTG Slots and Habanero Systems for much of the last decade. He has also been responsible for biz dev in Asia for Microgaming and enjoys extensive experience in the region’s gaming and regulatory environment.
More broadly, Long brings over 20 years’ experience in strategic sales and key advisory competencies across the diverse igaming sector to bear at QTech Games, bolstering and diversifying its C-Suite’s collective capabilities. Leveraging deep experience alongside an extensive network of long-standing relationships, Long is perfectly positioned to lead on commercial path-finding and business development at a time when acceleration in the digital-entertainment sphere is at its zenith.
The Board of QTech Games commented: “Securing the best C-Suite talent has always been a main pillar of our modus operandi. So, we’re naturally thrilled that Daniel has agreed to take the wheel for business development and strategic positioning at QTech Games for 2023 and beyond.
“We’ve invariably been committed to hiring the best personnel on the planet, not just the best games, and this pivotal role is emblematic of that intent, as our progressive company looks forward to turning the page on many more exciting chapters. To have one of the industry’s most proven performers take the reins in one of the most important domains of discourse for any distributor is a mark of how far we’ve come as a company and indicative of our established status in the market as the number-one distributor for all developing markets.
“In short, it’s a timely hiring move that helps consolidate and maintain the QTech platform’s place in the vanguard of the industry for taking the best online games to market across emerging territories. We’re confident these appointments will assist us in achieving our goals, chiefly powered by clear tactical focus around the customer experience, innovation tech and, of course, our own brand and its resilient values.”
Long added: “I’m delighted to join the QTech Games team at such an exciting time, helping define and implement commercial imperatives around aligning our partners and their customers. I’ve always based my business relationships on the ability to add value. And meeting the team, I’ve not only found a string of products that complement the different sides of the igaming industry but also a strong, experienced leadership resource that is client-focused and eager to tailor their offering to make it work in localised fashion for the customer, wherever they reside on the map. The QTech Games team have solid relationships across the industry, and they’re trusted and respected. I can’t conceive of a more compelling narrative than that in this ever-evolving sector.
“Ultimately, QTech Games is not a mere Asian aggregator but a true international distributor of digital entertainment that’s continuing to attract clients from all over the world. From LatAm to the CIS-facing countries and even the Indian market, we’re stealing a march on the competition. I’m sure that we can now build on this success and gain even more market traction and brand recognition, as one of the largest providers of digital entertainment on the market.”
“It’s a real thrill to be taking on this new challenge alongside some of the sharpest minds I’ve met in the business. After another record year of sustained growth in 2022, enhancing the speed and performance of all games on its platform, QTech has embedded itself in the industry consciousness with a series of new top-tier deals and innovative tools. Now it’s my job to help sustain that growth!”
