Continent 8 Technologies has appointed Carl Bonner as Regional Sales Director to assist with the company’s global rollout of its solutions and services.

Brian B Koh, Chief Commercial Officer at Continent 8 Technologies, commented: “I’d like to welcome Carl to our global sales team and look forward to benefitting from his unrivalled experience with supporting well-known brands in the igaming sector with cloud-based solutions.

“We are the go-to regulated cloud provider for the biggest operators and suppliers in the industry, and with Carl onboard, we will be able to better support existing customers and drive awareness of our solutions and services among those not already working with Continent 8.”

Before joining Continent 8, Bonner worked for three and a half years as a Senior Account Manager for Amazon Web Services, co-founding the company’s Betting & Gaming division to offer igaming brands with various AWS services. 

He has also held senior roles at cloud-based enterprise software company Oracle, supporting brands such as Pret a Manger, WHSmith, Shazam, UiPath and ESET with their cloud strategies and deployments.

Bonner added: “Joining Continent 8 allows me to share my passion for cloud-based solutions with operators and suppliers in the igaming industry, making them aware of the huge upsides they can unlock by utilising the cloud.

“I am thrilled to be joining such a respected business as Regional Sales Director and working with the wider team to not only meet but exceed our goals for growth.”

Continent 8’s multi-cloud strategy includes its regulated Public Cloud, Private Cloud, and Hyperscale Cloud solutions. 

The company holds AWS Advanced Tier Consulting Partner status to assist customers with AWS projects and deployments, and is also a Microsoft Silver Partner, augmenting its existing cloud offering with Microsoft Azure Stack.

Earlier this month, Gabriel Szlaifsztein, Regional Sales Director for LatAm at Continent 8, told CasinoBeats why operators and suppliers must prioritise robust infrastructure to succeed in the Brazilian market.
