BMM Testlabs said that Melissa Shuba has been promoted to the position of Vice President, Government Affairs & Licensing.
Travis Foley, EVP North America, commented, “For over five years, Melissa has successfully managed BMM’s license portfolio across some 300 gaming jurisdictions in North America and worldwide. Melissa’s success at BMM, combined with 13 years of past regulatory and industry experience, make her a natural leader to take on BMM’s government relations in North America across both commercial and tribal jurisdictions. She has built a strong team of professionals at BMM.”
Martin Storm, Group CEO, continued, “Melissa has also played a key role in BMM’s global regulatory compliance under the leadership of the Chairman of BMM’s Compliance Committee Frank Fahrenkopf, Jr. Together they have established a world-class compliance program encompassing 12 countries, meeting and reporting quarterly across key risk and compliance areas of the business.”
Shuba added, “BMM’s growth has been exceptional with many additions to the company’s global operations. That growth provides a unique opportunity to expand our licensing portfolio and enhance our relationships with regulators. The company is stronger than ever and I look forward to developing my team through its next phase of growth.”
Shuba joined BMM in 2016 as Senior Manager Regulatory Compliance, before accepting a Director Regulatory Compliance role and now the VP Government Affairs & Licensing role, where she will report to Travis Foley, EVP North America and for special projects to Chief Executive Officer, Martin Storm.
