STS Group has appointed Jarosław Walaszek as its new Chief Information Officer. He will be responsible for supporting the company’s management in the development of technologies and the overall digital environment in the Group.
Jarosław Walaszek has spent the last 16 years building the digital media world at Onet and later at Ringier Axel Springer Polska.
STS Group is the largest licensed bookmaker in Poland based on turnover, and also operates on an international scale through licenses in the UK and Estonia, from where it offers its services in several additional markets. The Group’s portfolio of services includes sports betting, virtual sports, an online casino (outside of Poland), BetGames and a wide range of betting services relating to esports.
“We have full control over the technology we use because it is one of our primary competitive advantages. The STS Group structures include a company called Betsys, which has developed a proprietary bookmaking system. The platform is fully scalable and adapted to all sales channels – online, mobile and retail sales. We develop our product and technology internally and the STS team of specialists in these areas consists of approx. 160 persons. STS is not only a leader in its industry but also an attractive employer that attracts top talent. The fact that Jarek Walaszek joins the Group will allow us to build a completely new quality for customers in Poland and abroad. His experience will help make STS’s product and technology offer even more innovative and focused on mobile solutions,” Mateusz Juroszek, CEO of STS Holding, said.
“I find the opportunity to join such an innovative organisation with such an ambitious digital transformation a very exciting and stimulating challenge. In my past adventure with technology in the world of digital media, I have had the opportunity to participate in and shape many complex and innovative projects, both product-related and cultural-organisational in nature. The constant search for new, effective ways of solving problems and working on a strong team identity and culture are areas that significantly shaped my previous work both as a Member of the Management Board at DreamLab Onet.pl and as an IT Development Director at Ringier Axel Springer Polska. Therefore, it is even more valuable for me to have the opportunity to work for such a dynamically developing Group and a team which sets such ambitious and progressive goals,” Jarosław Walaszek, CIO at STS Group, said.
