Visionary iGaming hires Steve Obia

The Costa Rica-based live dealer provider Visionary iGaming has announced the appointment of Steve Obia (43) as chief operating officer, responsible for the strategic and operational leadership of the company’s 24/7 live casino studio, IT operations, customer service and relationships, and support.

Obia joins the company after three years at the world’s largest internet gaming site, PokerStars, where he served as director of support operations, a role in which he was instrumental in building and managing the giant’s Deposit Assistance and Customer Service organisation, handling millions of active monthly players.

Prior to Pokerstars, he spent 17 years in a range of international executive, management, and operational positions at Hewlett Packard. In Obia’s preceding executive role with HP he was responsible for building and managing the company’s Software Support Group in its Costa Rican Customer Support Center, an operation that ultimately employed over 500 staff.

“I am tremendously excited to have such a high profile executive join Visionary iGaming’s management team, where we will benefit immensely from his industry experience at PokerStars, proven record of success in large operations and passion for technology,” said Martin Reiner, CEO of Visionary iGaming.

Obia said, “Visionary iGaming is one of the fastest growing companies in the internet gaming industry because of its innovative approach to producing high quality live online casino games. All large gaming brands are evaluating the addition of live dealer casino to their product offering and Visionary iGaming is at the forefront with an exceptional product.”
