SBTech hands top compliance role to Kanter

Jeremie Kanter will lead global team after joining the company from Playtech


New SBTech compliance chief Jeremie Kanter has been tasked with raising standards globally as the company seeks expansion in new markets.

Kanter has spent over 14 years working in the gaming industry, including a 12-year spell with Playtech where he managed the company’s B2C and network services compliance function. He most recently served as vice-president of compliance at blockchain-powered iGaming platform CashBet, having only taken on the role in May. Now with SBTech, Kanter will have responsibility for growing and maintaining compliance across the company’s global business within both new and existing markets where it is active. SBTech has been actively pursuing new partnerships in the US in recent times following the repeal of PASPA. In September, the company went live with sports betting services in both New Jersey and Mississippi. Reporting to CEO Richard Carter, Kanter will manage, enhance and implement new and existing tools, procedures and processes, as well as engage with international regulators to ensure SBTech is meeting regulatory requirements around the world. Speaking about his new role, Kanter said: “SBTech already sets the benchmark when it comes to compliance and I’m looking forward to the challenge of raising those standards to an even higher level across the business’s leading technology, tools and processes. “Compliance is an enabler to sustainably and significantly growing the business and achieving even more success, and I’m very excited with the plans the company has for the future.” CEO Carter added: “Jeremie is a fantastic addition to the senior team and I’m delighted to be able to bring him on board.

“His experience in setting the highest standards possible, his meticulous approach to encouraging and implementing best practice and navigating some of the most complex issues in the industry will be vital as we continue to launch in newly regulated and regulating markets.”
