Ganapati announces two key appointments

Ganapati announces two key appointments

Thursday, June 22, 2017 Posted by James Walker

As the company prepares to launch on the B2B online gaming market, Ganapati Malta has welcomed two new members to its growing team.

Zoe Bell has been named as the commercial manager for Ganapati Malta and Irina Negotei as the product manager for the company’s game development studio, Ganalogics.

Bell is an experienced corporate lawyer and customer relations expert. She has been working in the online gaming industry since 2008, gaining experience in client-facing roles at all levels, both at Playtech and as a freelance consultant.

Negotei has been in the online industry since 2013. She has a technical and economical scholar background with widespread experience in B2B companies, including Pragmatic Play and Everymatrix.

The appointments come less than a month after Ganapati was awarded a Class IV remote gaming licence from the Malta Gaming Authority.

“Being awarded a Class IV licence in Malta enables our company to enter the regulated gaming market,” director Richard Hogg told “It gives our clients and their customers the reassurances they need when dealing with an online casino games supplier.

“The first half of 2017 has seen Ganapati Malta prepare itself for its launch on the B2B market, which in turn will lead to our games being played by the public for the first time.

“We have been concentrating on completing our own RGS and a suite of games which we believe the market will enjoy. The variants in our games should allow us to better understand game performance so that we can optimise these moving forward.”

Hogg added: “Myself and Zoe recently completed a short sales trip to Malta, which saw us present our games to over 10 of the biggest operators and platform providers on the island.

“The feedback was extremely positive, and we are continuing these discussions in order our flagship games, SheNinjaSuzu and CrypBattle, plus a selection of others are released as soon as possible.”

To support Ganapati’s exiting tech office in Estonia, the company recently opened a new office in Bucharest, Romania.

“This has enabled us to add more games, including Pikotaro’s Pineapple Pen and Pachinko Fireworks, all of which we will be demonstrating at the iGaming Super Show in Amsterdam next month,” said Hogg.

Totally Gaming says: Founded in September 2016, Ganapati Malta has established itself as a growing player in the global online gaming sector. The appointment of Bell and Negotei adds two more experienced industry figures to the team, as the company continues to develop new titles and prepares to launch on the B2B market.
