The global iGaming and sports betting business-to-business (B2B) supplier, FSB, announced that his interim chief executive officer (CEO), Adam Smith, has assumed a full-time role with the company. It was back in December 2022 when Smith was selected as interim CEO.
Now, after a successful three-month interim period, FSB confirmed that Smith will assume the CEO role full-time. The senior-level change came at a time when the company sought to expand its global presence by entering North America, a strategic iGaming market.
The long-awaited entry was completed via a deal with one of the company’s long-term partners, Fitzdares. This collaboration saw the B2B supplier expand its global footprint by entering the regulated gambling market in Ontario, Canada, a market that is identified as one of the most lucrative ones for the region.
In the role of CEO, Smith will oversee the company’s growth and continuous expansion. Previously, FSB confirmed its plans to continue to enhance its presence in strategic markets such as Africa, and mainland Europe, including UK and Ireland, as well as Canada.
Smith Is Excited to Lead FSB
Commenting on the topic, Smith said that it is exciting to take the CEO role full-time at FSB. Moreover, he said that the company has significant potential for growth. Smith acknowledged that FSB’s platform delivers innovative technology which makes the company an invaluable partner for customers in the gaming sector.
“Taking full-time charge of FSB is a great thrill for me.“

“We are delighted that Adam has agreed to come onboard as full-time CEO effective immediately.“
