Malta-headquartered casino operator Videoslots has welcomed Marco Trucco as its new chief marketing officer (CMO).  

Trucco’s appointment follows the departure of Ali Atam, who has left the business to pursue other opportunities.

Atam had been with the company for nearly seven years. He initially joined Videoslots as head of acquisition and was promoted to the position of CMO in November 2017.

Deputy Videoslots CEO Ulle Skottling wished Atam well with his next appointment in comments provided to iGaming NEXT: “In the meantime, we’re really excited to replace him with someone of Marco’s calibre and experience,” he added.

Trucco officially assumed his role on 10 July and boasts 16 years of experience in the iGaming industry.

His most recent position was as managing director of GGPoker, where he established the European hub in Malta and oversaw the expansion of the poker operator into multiple EU markets.

Prior to that, he served as associate director of international marketing at The Stars Group, where he played a key role in the acquisition efforts for PokerStars and PokerStars Casino.

He initially joined the gaming industry in 2007, holding various management positions in Italy, including the role of gaming director at Eurobet.

Two decades of experience

“The role of CMO is a vital part of any business, especially for us at Videoslots, and we believe we are in good hands with Marco at the helm,” Skottling explained.

“Marco has nearly two decades worth of experience, working in various parts of Europe and his understanding of the sector fits in perfectly with our ambitions,” he continued.  

Trucco added: “It is an honour to be appointed CMO at one of the industry’s best operators. My role is to raise Videoslots’ exposure to the growing number of online casino players who demand a superior product and great customer service.  

“I’ll make the best use of my experience and creativity, with the intention of bolstering Videoslots across many markets globally.” 

The operator described Trucco as a “valuable asset” due to his familiarity with the working environment in Malta as the company aims to strengthen its operations in Spain, Italy and LatAm.

Moreover, the operator recently entered the Canadian province of Ontario.

Videoslots was founded in 2011 by ex-poker player Alexander Stevendahl and holds licences in Malta, the UK, Spain, Italy, Denmark, Sweden and Ontario.
