Continent 8 Technologies, a renowned supplier of managed hosting, connectivity, cloud, and security solutions for the worldwide online gambling sector, is pleased to announce the addition of Carl Bonner as its Regional Sales Director.
This appointment strengthens Continent 8's world sales squad at a period when the request for its products and services is increasing due to the ongoing expansion of regulated online gambling in core jurisdictions globally.
Carl, an expert cloud specialist, joins Continent 8 after serving as a senior account manager at AWS (Amazon Web Services) for the previous years. During his time at AWS, he co-founded the Betting & Gaming division, providing different AWS services to famous iGaming companies.
Before his tenure at AWS, Carl held senior positions at Oracle, a cloud-based software brand. In these roles, he collaborated with major European brands such as Pret a Manger, WHSmith, Shazam, UiPath, and ESET, assisting them with their cloud strategies and deployments.
Bringing his extensive experience to Continent 8, Carl will be tasked with supporting the provider's multi-cloud principle and expanding its customer base in key regulated iGaming jurisdictions, including the rapidly growing US industry.
Continent 8's multi-cloud strategy enables it to assist customers with regulated Public Cloud, Private Cloud, and Hyperscale Cloud solutions. The company holds AWS Advanced Tier Consulting Partner status, allowing it to support users with AWS solutions and deployments. Additionally, it is a Microsoft Silver Partner, enhancing its cloud offerings with Microsoft Azure Stack.
Brian B. Koh, CCO at Continent 8, expressed his excitement about Carl joining the global sales team, anticipating the benefits of Carl's unparalleled experience in supporting famous companies in the iGaming industry with cloud-based products.
As the preferred cloud supplier for major operators and providers in the sector, with Carl on board, the company aims to better back current customers and raise awareness of products and services among operators who are not yet partnering with Continent 8.
On the other side, Carl Bonner, Regional Sales Director at Continent 8, said:
“Joining Continent 8 allows me to share my passion for cloud-based solutions with operators and suppliers in the iGaming industry, making them aware of the huge upsides they can unlock by utilising the cloud.
“I am thrilled to be joining such a respected business as Regional Sales Director and working with the wider team to not only meet but exceed our goals for growth.”
