eCOGRA Adds Three to Staff

Accounting professionals added to compliance staff. To join teams traveling to accredited operations and new applicant companies.

e-Commerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance, better known as eCOGRA, has announced the addition of three accounting professionals to its compliance staff.

The London-based, non-profit, independent standards authority of the online gaming industry said the new members of staff would join experienced teams traveling to eCOGRA-accredited operations and new applicant companies to conduct acceptance and compliance reviews.

All three new staff members are qualified chartered accountants and have experience in major international audit and professional business service companies.

Look inside
The announcement of their appointments allows us to look a little closer at the organization that is eCOGRA and its operations - wholly transparent - in service of the gambling community:

  • Gareth Muirhead joins the authority's Data Department, which is responsible for ensuring the fairness of the gambling software being offered by casino, poker and bingo operators by performing comprehensive output-based tests on the randomness and payouts of the games. eCOGRA currently monitors and certifies the results of over 200 online gambling sites.
  • Bradley Khoury and Sean Roberts join eCOGRA's Compliance and Advisory Services Department, which provides services to over 50 tier one online gambling companies, as well as providing eGAP inspections and reviews on certifications for software suppliers, operators and affiliate programs.

eCOGRA CEO Andrew Beveridge said the new employees were carefully selected for their specific skills and experience.

"Their duties not only involve the interesting application of a wide range of diverse professional skills, but also require them to travel throughout the world, providing consulting and auditing services to over 50 of the top operations in the online gambling industry, many of them listed companies," Beveridge said.
