Esports betting company Luckbox has appointed Ran Kaspi as its new Chief Financial Officer.
Kaspi previously served as the CFO of ASX-listed ParaZero LTD, who develops drone safety solutions. Prior to that, he served as Finance Director of Global-e, a top European provider of seamless cross-border E-commerce solutions.
He brings substantial online gaming experience following almost six years at London Stock exchange-listed 888.com (LON:888) where he led the economic and performance team. Ran holds an MBA degree in Finance from the Tel-Aviv University in Israel and a BA in Economics and Management. He is licensed by the Israeli Securities Authority.
Kaspi said: “I’m very happy to join the team at what is a hugely exciting time for the business and the esports industry as a whole.
“A few years ago, I had the chance to provide CFO services to a startup within the esports domain and I was given a shot to learn about the great potential of this industry.
“When the opportunity came, I thought that Luckbox has the potential to become a fantastic growth story in the future and its background, coupled with the public listing, were very appealing.”
Luckbox’s parent company Real Luck Group Ltd last month debuted on the TSX Venture exchange in Toronto under ticker LUCK and has enjoyed an encouraging start to public life, with the share price up 75% at the time of writing.
Luckbox CEO Quentin Martin said: “I am delighted to formally welcome Ran to the team. His talent and experience are hugely relevant to our story and he will play a major role as we look to build on our phenomenal success in 2020 and our new life as a public company.”
