Licensed blockchain lottery operator Quanta has announced the appointment of Harmen Brenninkmeijer as the company’s new chief executive officer, with immediate effect.

The appointment follows on from a strategic review conducted by Dynamic Partners, which resulted in Quanta’s board of directors being impressed with Brenninkmeijer’s vision for the operator’s future.  

As a result, the board subsequently made it their priority to secure Brenninkmeijer’s commitment to lead Quanta through this period of change and onward through the company’s next period of evolution as it aims to utilise blockchain to create gaming solutions that enhance potential whilst lessening barriers to entry.

Discussing the appointment of its new CEO, Quanta stated: “Harmen is the ideal person to lead Quanta. He has significant experience in gaming as an operator and as a supplier and has a unique understanding of the challenges of all parts of the gaming business. 

“He has worked in many countries and his network will help Quanta to expand its reach and establish new customers and partnerships in high growth markets. Harmen led the strategic review undertaken by Dynamic Partners and has made, and will implement, the recommendations resulting from the review. 

“Harmen will focus on the stabilisation of the company, resetting the vision and the implementation of best practice across business development, product development, operations and management.”

Brenninkmeijer, who has a reputation for introducing unique products and adopting new technologies, joins Quanta with a wealth of experience garnered from his time working in regulated gaming sectors across emerging markets.

Having worked in over 70 countries actively supplying gaming equipment, advising and developing the gaming industry, the new CEO most recently formed the Global Chain in 2016, as a vehicle to establish equity projects.

Discussing his experience and future vision for Quanta, Brenninkmeijer added: “You can see from my track record that I have always had a great interest in emerging technologies in the gaming space. My feeling is that Quanta is the leading proponent in the development, operation and support of regulated gaming solutions that utilise blockchain. 

“Our vision is to be the leader in this new space and to develop solutions that are low cost and so suit both highly competitive as well as emerging markets; are tech and currency agnostic to provide as broad coverage as possible; are decentralised where feasible to deliver transparency to the user and the regulator; and that are flexible enough to enable the discovery of new business models. I am hugely positive and excited about Quanta’s future.”
