Gaming solutions supplier EveryMatrix has appointed Gonzalo De Osma Bucero as its Chief Financial Officer (CFO), highlighting in particular its new hire’s global expertise.
De Osma Bucero will divide his time between EveryMatrix’s Malta-based legal and compliance teams and Buchrest. Romania HQ and finance division, with responsibility for group-wide financial activities.
This will include management financial activities across its full range of brand portfolios, including its lottery activities and OddsMatrix sportsbook division, the latter of which provides betting services to a range of European lottery operators.
Ebbe Groes, EveryMatrix CEO, commented: “EveryMatrix is a high growth business and we have huge plans that we are constantly executing, therefore we needed the best and most experienced finance expert to join us on this journey, so we’re delighted to have secured Gonzalo’s services.
“We spent a significant amount of time identifying the best candidate for this crucial role and Gonzalo stood head and shoulders above the rest.
“His vast experience and knowledge at Codere within demanding regulated markets, in retail and online and across a wide variety of areas will be invaluable and I’m confident he will be a huge asset.”
As mentioned above, EveryMatrix has specifically highlighted the international experience of its new CFO, who has worked across Spain, Mexico and Malta in both land-based and online capacities, mostly focused around betting and casino operations.
His most notable tenure was a 16 year stint at Spanish firm Codere, where he played a key role in the company’s Mexican activities, such as managing a horse racing track, expo centre and 90-strong land-based casino operation.
He also played his part in securing Codere’s largest loan in Mexico and signing the SPAC merger last year that resulted in the listing of the Codere Online division on the US Nasdaq, becoming the first Latin America-focused bookmaker to do so.
“I’m thrilled to join Ebbe, the management team and the business at such an exciting time for EveryMatrix,” De Osma Bucero remarked.
“The plans he has outlined made my decision to join an easy one, and I’m looking forward to getting to know the team and every element of this great business so we can achieve the ambitious but achievable goals we have set ourselves.”
