Play’n Go’s talented Global Account Manager Lena Yasir was honoured with this year’s Leader of the Year iGaming (Supplier) award at the 9th Women in Gaming Diversity Awards.
The award was in deserved recognition of Lena’s hard work within the business ensuring that our relationships with our clients are maintained and cultivated at the highest level, making sure that Play’n Go provides the best service to our customers, and continues to work in the forefront of the market.

“I am truly honoured to be part of an organization that supports and believes so strongly in diversity. Play’n GO has identified that we need to encourage women to take on more responsibilities in this growing industry, and we have many managerial positions filled by strong leaders within the company.”
