The competition of companies providing platforms services for iGaming and online sports betting operators has always been very fierce. As the chief commercial officer for Kambi, which is arguably the leader in that space, Max Meltzer learned all he could about the U.S. market and how to penetrate it. One year ago, he was named CEO of Strive Gaming, another European platform provider that has that special something, according to Meltzer. The company offers superior player management while being able to satisfy all the regulatory and compliance aspects of online gaming and delivering unique and innovative content. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros from the Strive Gaming Vancouver offices in August. (See video below.)

Roger Gros is publisher of Global Gaming Business, the industry's leading gaming trade publication, and all its related publications. Prior to joining Global Gaming Business, Gros was president of Inlet Communications, an independent consulting firm. He was vice president of Casino Journal Publishing Group from 1984-2000, and held virtually every editorial title during his tenure. Gros was editor of Casino Journal, the National Gaming Summary and the Atlantic City Insider, and was the founding editor of Casino Player magazine. He was a co-founder of the American Gaming Summit and the Southern Gaming Summit conferences and trade shows. He is the author of the best-selling book, How to Win at Casino Gambling (Carlton Books, 1995), now in its fourth edition. Gros was named "Businessman of the Year" for 1998 by the Greater Atlantic City Chamber of Commerce, and received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Gaming Association in 2012.
