San Francisco, California (PressExposure) May 26, 2009 -- CyberArts announced today two significant additions to its company roster--Silicon Valley software veteran Rudi Dietzmann and Mark Simpson, a well-known sales leader in the European technology sector.
The San Francisco-based company stunned many industry observers with its rapid acquisition of contracts from industry leaders like Mansion.com, World Poker Tour and Tony G Poker within its first year of entering the market. âWe have several deals of the same caliber pending and we have begun to expand staff significantly this year to meet demand,â said Ken Arnold, Chairman of the Board of CyberArts. The company hasnât been particularly impacted by US gambling restrictions. âTo the contrary our key differentiatorsâtruly global, truly customizable and 100% licensableâallow us to support the savvy operators in the global markets.â
CyberArts has added Mark Simpson as European Sales Director to reach more global marketers. Simpsonâs career is marked by strong leadership at top technology companies. Most recently Simpson served as Regional Sales Director-Europe, for IP address infrastructure provider Nominum. Additionally, Simpson has had senior management positions at Orbis, Nativeminds, Kana, HNC Telecommunications Division and QSP PLC. âThis is a wide, wide open field right now and I like being on the cutting edge,â commented Simpson. âFor the most part entertainment brands in Europeâand the US- -are just beginning to see the possibilities in online gaming.â
Additionally, the company has seen an uptick in the US-facing market as loopholes in the UIGEA are beginning to be exploited. âWeâre seeing companies exploring legal models like subscription or advergaming, as well as intra-facility and intra state gamingâwhich recently opened up due to Nevada legislation changes,â said Arnold. âTo exploit these opportunities we continue to add featuresâand staff.â
Coming on as Vice President of Engineering at CyberArts Diezmann has served in a variety of management and executive software development positions during his 30- plus years in the high-tech field.
