Pariplay names Jose Micallef as business development director

Wizard Games, a subsidiary of NeoGames, has announced the appointment of Benedict McDonagh as Managing Director in a move to “take the studio to the next level”.

Aspire Global’s igaming aggregator and content provider Pariplay has appointed Jose Micallef as its new business development director.

The addition of Micallef’s expertise, which also includes seven years at B3W group, represents a “significant boost” for the group as it aims to establish its brand in the US, as well as a selection of other global regulated markets.

“Our aggregator platform now reaches more than 16 regulated markets worldwide and after signing a number of new partnerships deals recently, we are keen to maintain the forward momentum,” Christine Lewis, chief commercial officer at Pariplay, said of the appointment.

“The appointment of a business development director of Jose’s lengthy experience enables us to further optimise our strategy at an exciting time for the company.” 

Micallef, whose wealth of industry experience includes a similar role at NetEnt, will lead Pariplay’s strategic operations as the provider continues to expand its global reach through partnerships with operators and games studios. 

Micaleff added: “Pariplay’s work in expanding the reach of its comprehensive Fusion platform has made many in the industry sit up and take notice. 

“I am looking forward to being part of a dynamic company whose hard work is resonating with players in regulated markets around the world.”
