OPTIMA’s Jacob Lopez collects Azar ‘Business Excellence’ gong

Jacob Lopez, the founder and CEO of sports betting and gaming solutions provider OPTIMA, has hailed the contribution of his team after landing an award from the Azar Magazine.

Azar, a leading publication dedicated to all things betting and gaming in Spain, has recognised Lopez with a ‘Business Excellence’ award.

Since July 2012, Lopez has driven huge growth for OPTIMA across the six-year period, as emphasised by a sharp increase in staff numbers. Having started out with just 12 colleagues, he now oversees a team that is set to exceed 200 by the end of 2018.

He commented: “This recognition is not just for me, it is also for the entire OPTIMA team, whose business trajectory has not been able to bear better results in the last 4 years, starting with 12 colleagues, reaching 150 today and that will touch the 200 by the end of 2018.

“For this, I thank all those who have supported us, the OPTIMA team, partners, clients, and the push of all those who try to do things in this sector in a different and innovative way.”

Having presented a commemorative plaque, Azar Magazine president Manuel Ortega praised OPTIMA for winning international awards and becoming well-known around the world, while highlighting some of the “incredible” deals signed by Lopez.

At the end of 2017, OPTIMA signed a deal to supply Betfred with its Multi-Channel Gaming Suite (MGS), just a few days after announcing an agreement for the licensing, support, and development of IGT’s sports betting platform in all international regions outside of Italy, the United States and Canada.
