Jordi Sendra has been tapped as the new CEO of game aggregation platform Alea, after current chief Alex Tomic announced he would be stepping back from day-to-day operations.

The senior management shake-up will see Tomic, who has led the business since its founding in June 2012, step back to a non-executive role.

In this capacity he plans to focus on the company’s overall strategy in emerging markets such as Latam, Africa and Asia.

Alea said the move would also allow Tomic to devote more time to his industry commitments outside the business.

As such, current chief operating officer Sendra will take over as CEO. Sendra has spent three years at the business in his current role.

Previously, he served as managing director at a manufacturing plant. This followed several stints in business consultancy.

Ramon Glieneke appointed as COO

Replacing Sendra as COO will Ramon Glieneke, who will hold responsibility for the day-to-day functioning of the business.

Glieneke is experienced in API aggregation from c-level positions at travel industry firm Apartum and its Cerbrium spin-off.

“I’ve been at Alea for the last three years and during this time, I’ve seen the business evolve into one of the most exciting aggregator platforms in our industry,” said Sendra.

“I’m delighted that Alex and the team have put their trust in me to lead this company forward and I’m also very excited to welcome Ramon to the team.

“We are always looking for new and incredibly talented people from outside of the iGaming industry to join us on this journey.

“Ramon’s API aggregation experience gained from working within the travel sector will provide us with a whole new level of knowledge and perspective and will help to ensure our success moving forward.”

Glieneke added: “It’s a fantastic opportunity for me to bring my vast experience to the iGaming industry.

“Alea is one of the fastest growing companies in this space and I’m thrilled to be given the position of COO and look forward to supporting Jordi as we go from strength to strength.”
