Maxima Compliance names Zaha as first CPO

Maxima Compliance has hired its first chief product officer, appointing former Paddy Power Betfair manager Catalin Zaha to the role.

Zaha will oversee Maxima Compliance’s fast-growing product suite, which includes the world’s first technical compliance database for the gaming industry, Complitech.

The Maxima Compliance portfolio of products was further bolstered early this year with the launch of Maxima DataVault, a platform capable of receiving XML and JSON data from operators and game providers, and saving it in the correct format required by local regulators across multiple jurisdictions.

Zaha joins after six years at Flutter Entertainment where he assumed a number of roles, including Product Owner for Data – Regulatory and Financial Platform Services.

He also serves as a working group expert on CEN/TC 456 reporting in support of online gambling supervision at BSI. CEN has initiated a new standardisation activity in the field of online gambling services in response to a European Commission request.

Maxima Compliance CEO Antonio Zanghi said: “Maxima Compliance continues to build a diverse range of products in support of the compliance needs of our customers, so it was time we appointed our first ever chief product officer to oversee these products. Catalin joins with exceptional pedigree and experience at one of the world’s largest gaming companies. He’s going to be a fantastic addition to our team.”

Maxima Compliance CPO Catalin Zaha said: “Maxima Compliance has been on my radar for a couple of years because of the innovative and technology-led approach they take to compliance. I’m thrilled to be joining at such an exciting time for Maxima, and look forward to further building out what is already a world-class product offering.”
