Bianchi has worked for more than a decade in the field of igaming compliance, most recently as director of igaming operations at BMM Testlabs.
He brings unparalleled experience and internal knowledge from running a leading test lab, and will oversee all of Maxima Compliance’s technical compliance offering, including technical compliance consulting services as well as its recently-launched Complitech product.
His remit will also include supporting the management team in strategy and delivery. He will report directly to managing director Antonio Zanghi.
Bianchi has previously held senior compliance roles at GLI, NMi and Betfair.
Antonio Zanghi, Founder and Managing Director of Maxima Compliance, said: “Maxima Compliance has grown rapidly over the past year, but this is really a landmark appointment for us.
“Francesco is globally recognised as a leading expert across the entire spectrum of technical compliance. His knowledge from more than a decade in the industry is unparalleled, and will be an invaluable resource for Maxima Compliance clients looking to gain an edge.
“He is one of the few people who could make the strongest technical compliance team in gaming even stronger.”
Francesco Bianchi, Director of Compliance Operations at Maxima Compliance, said: “Maxima Compliance has quickly established itself as the most innovative and essential provider of compliance services in our industry.
“Joining this team at a time when compliance has never been more important was an opportunity too good to turn down. I look forward to getting to work and providing the very best technical compliance support on the market.”
The hire of Bianchi follows the recent appointment of Dafydd Williams as head of business development, as Maxima Compliance continues to scale its team.
