Pariplay appoints director to lead Canada & US expansion

Aspire Global-owned gaming supplier Pariplay has appointed Matthew Kelemen as its business development director for North America, wherein he will be charged with expanding the brand’s presence in Canada and the U.S.

Kelemen brings over 20 years of iGaming experience to Pariplay, having previously held senior roles at Boss Media, RealTime Gaming, and Peak Interactive.

Pariplay is currently licenced for iGaming in New Jersey, West Virginia and Michigan in the U.S. and is collaborating with NeoPollard Interactive in Alberta, where its digital gaming content was recently rolled out on Alberta, Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis’ (AGLC) PlayAlberta platform.

“We’ve made great strides in the United States and Canada in the past year, and we’re delighted to strengthen our footprint there by welcoming Matthew to the team,” said Pariplay managing director Adrian Bailey. “As an experienced executive in our targeted markets, he brings a wealth of competence and it will prove invaluable as we continue our growth trajectory.”

Kelemen is Pariplay’s first North America-based in-house employee and is representative of the brand’s desire to focus on making a splash in markets on the continent.

Kelemen himself added:  “The direction Pariplay is travelling is clear and extremely exciting, and I’m thrilled to join the team. We’re already making waves in the U.S. and Canada and I look forward to adding value to the company and bringing my expertise to the wider team as we expand.”
