Francesco Rodano Joins Playtech

Playtech, a gambling software development company, has today announced that former Italian online gaming regulator, Francesco Rodano, has joined the firm’s executive management team as Chief Policy Officer.

Working out of the UK office, Rodano will report to Mor Weizer, the group’s chief executive officer.

Rodano’s new role will see him engaging with policy-makers to advise company executives on governmental policies at local, state, national and EU levels. Rodano will also be tasked with seeking out new business opportunities for Playtech’s growing international presence.

Playtech is set to benefit from over 18 years of experience that Rodano has gained from working with a number of different online businesses, with his last nine years spent at AAMS; the Italian gambling regulatory authority, where he was responsible for managing and leading the country’s online gaming regulation.

While at AAMS, Rodano reformed the Italian regulatory framework and oversaw the introduction of a comprehensive range of regulated online products, including poker in 2008 and casino games in 2011, attracting over 100 licensees to the market.

During his tenure, Italian gross gambling revenue grew to above €800 million, making it Europe’s second largest regulated market, with Italy becoming a successful case study for other regulators whose countries have or are soon to be regulated. In 2008, he was also awarded the IMGL’s Regulator of the Year award.

Since 2012, Rodano has been a member of the European Commission’s Group on Gambling Services, where he supported a draft of the formal initiatives recently adopted by the Commission.

Mor Weizer, CEO at Playtech, said “Thanks to his professional achievements and his personal stature, Francesco has become a highly influential figure in the international online gambling arena. We’re delighted he has chosen to join Playtech and I’m sure he will provide an invaluable contribution to the further growth of the company.”

Francesco Rodano said “After many years spent as a regulator, I’m excited to move to the industry side and to join Playtech at a time when focus on regulated markets is a global priority. Playtech has a talented and respected management team and I am really looking forward to supporting them on public policy matters.”
