Play’n GO has added another trophy to its cabinet of industry awards after Deion Williams scooped the Data Protection Officer of the Year title at the 2018 Gambling Compliance Global Regulatory Awards.
The company’s Information, Security and Technical Compliance Officer’s showed particular commitment to implementing data protection procedures, which has been a key factor in Play’n GO’s entry into new markets.
This year’s award was shared between Play’n GO and Anna Niewiadomska from the operator Kindred, with the judges unable to separate the pair’s outstanding commitment to compliance.
Williams, who picked up the award at last night’s ceremony in London, said he was honoured to receive industry acclaim for his work.
He added: “For myself and the rest of the team to be recognised for our hard work is a fantastic feeling, especially at such a prestigious ceremony.”
Johan Törnqvist, CEO at Play’n GO, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled that Deion has been crowned Data Protection Officer of the Year.
“Since joining the company last year, he’s played an instrumental role in the implementation of regulatory measures to help the company grow in new and existing regulated markets.
“Huge congratulations go to him and the rest of the team, and a big thanks for all the hard work they continue to put in for us.”
