OCR Labs Global has confirmed Fiona Davies has joined the digital ID verification company as its new Head of Gaming.
Davies comes with 15 years of experience of the regulatory market around gambling and has immediately been handed the task of implementing a strategy to improve the verification experience while preventing fraud.
Commenting on her new role, Davies said: “My first introduction to gambling was at ICE London, where I was instantly fascinated by this high-growth vertical and its complexity from a regulatory standpoint. I am passionate about working with clients and offering them real solutions that will add value across the board.”
More recently, Davies has overseen the strategy for Acuris Risk Intelligence, implementing its gambling strategy, and was primarily responsible for the business growing to over 120 operators from an initial five.
Davies continued: “I am excited to build out the gambling division at OCR Labs Global offering operators products that underpin this strict regulatory environment whilst not impinging on user experience.”
Russ Cohn, General Manager International for OCR Labs Global, added, “OCR Labs Global is committed to bringing our technology to gambling operators and their users worldwide. We are a real force multiplier for the industry, with our fully automated and user friendly and reliable ID verification process dramatically speeding up user onboarding.
“We welcome Fiona’s industry experience and ability to leverage our solution and elevate our efforts in gambling. We are confident that her expertise will support global operators to take advantage of this excellent growth opportunity.”
