The new leadership team at Colossus Bets reflects the company’s expansion as a provider of pools, tote and cash out technology.
“I am happy to take the baton and lead Colossus into the next stage,” Farcas said. I consider myself fortunate to work with Alberto, Laurence, and other dependable team members who are equally passionate about our future and intimately familiar with our past.
Bernard Marantelli commented that Paula is a well-respected leader who built and controlled the entire technology stack. She combines a deep understanding of our world-leading technology with strong commercial savvy, which makes her the natural choice to lead Colossus into the future.
The new C-level team is made up of strong talent, which allows us to confidently pass the baton to this next generation of leaders at an exciting time for the company. We could not have done better if we had looked at it from a different perspective.
I would like to thank Eva and David for their many contributions over the past years and for leading the company to the stage where it is today, serving tens of partners and thousands of users globally. We have built a solid foundation to continue to scale and capture the value of our significant intellectual property and technology assets, including now in the US market.
