SMP eGaming expands its board following high demand in 2019

Isle of Man compliance and staff training advisory for igaming businesses SMP eGaming (SMP) has moved to strengthen its Board following a period of significant growth and demand for its services.

Updating stakeholders, SMP confirms the appointment of Jade Zorab, Matthew Robbins and Karen Yates as new board members, providing oversight and guidance on SMP’s industry provisions.

A company executive since 2016, Jade Zorab – current Head of Corporate Development for SMP partners – will offer guidance on the development and delivery of SMP eGaming staff training programmes.

Former Stars Group executive Matthew Robbins, who joined the company this year as Director of eGaming Regulatory Compliance, will sit on the SMP board as lead compliance and governance advisor.

The SMP board is completed by the appointment of Karen Yates, SMP’s long-term Head of Licensing, as a governance advisor on industry operations and corporate structures.

2019 has seen SMP secure staff development and compliance monitoring accounts for tier-1 bookmaker Betfred and leading platform provider SBTech.
