Genting Casino (UK subsidiary of Genting Group Malaysia) has confirmed the appointment of Jeremy Taylor as new Interactive Managing Director, charged with spearheading the firm’s ambitious digital growth strategy for online casino and sportsbook services.

Under the leadership of Taylor as new MD of Interactive, Genting confirms that its digital operations will be migrated to Malta, as the gambling group seeks to rapidly accelerate the growth of GentingCasino.com & GentingBet.com

I’m looking forward to consolidating the interactive team in Malta and growing both casino and sports verticals through a combination of product optimisation, improved mobile user experience, the best game content and aggressive integrated marketing campaigns. I’m also excited to be looking at the European regulated market potential for the Genting sports and casino brands. It’s a great opportunity for me and a very exciting time for the Genting brand”.
