Maxima Compliance has rolled-out a further expansion to its global team, after confirming the appointments of Andrew Burgoyne as Head of Regulatory and Mike de Graaff as the company’s Regional Compliance Manager for the Netherlands.

The hires, the company says, underlines its “global approach to securing local talent,” as it looks to better serve partners internationally with “on-the-ground knowledge and expertise,” regardless of the jurisdictions they are prioritising.

“I’m delighted to welcome both Andrew and Mike to the team,” explained Antonio Zanghi, CEO of Maxima Compliance.

“We are focused on both expanding our global team of regulatory and technical compliance experts, while also adding regional managers who can deliver local knowledge and support directly to clients. Our partners in jurisdictions around the world continue to enjoy the benefits of this approach.”

Burgoyne joins following more than three years as Compliance Manager at Flutter, after having previously worked for Sky and the Advertising Standards Authority.

“It is a pleasure to join a team with unparalleled expertise across compliance,” he stated. “Maxima is already assisting some of the biggest names in gaming with their regulatory compliance needs, and I look forward to further raising the bar for our partners when it comes to this critical business function.”

Elsewhere, de Graaff will oversee the regulatory and technical compliance needs of partners in the Netherlands, helping them optimise their compliance functions. He has previously held risk and compliance roles at gaming operators including ComeOn! and Betclic Group

“I’m thrilled to join the Maxima Compliance team, and I’m particularly excited to help build our presence in the Netherlands from this new office,” de Graaff noted. 

“This is a challenging but high-reward market, where those who draw upon local expertise are already outpacing the competition.”
