Maris Catania, Kindred Group’s responsible gambling expert, is nominated to one of the most important awards on the international gambling scene, iGaming Business’ list of the Most Influential Women in gambling 2020.

For the third consecutive year, iGaming Business has presented its list of the Most Influential Women in the gambling industry. Following last year’s “Bubbling under: the next five”, Kindred’s Head of Responsible Gambling and Research, Maris Catania, this time steps up as one of the industry’s most influential women. With the ongoing pandemic and the effect it has on women and men balancing work life with family, iGaming Business have made it clear that it is even more important to celebrate those women who are having a significant influence on our industry.

“I feel very honoured and humbled to be part of the top 10 most influential women in online gambling. I started in this industry in 2009 and stepped into the Responsible Gambling world in 2011. Responsible Gambling, RG, has changed from an area that no one really spoke about, or gave any importance to, to a topic that is now on top of the agenda for some. Being recognised for the RG work done is obviously humbling, but it would be great if we saw that Responsible Gambling is part of everyone’s agenda. Harm minimisation needs to be the most important aspect of every company, and what we deem as a competitive edge being the status quo across all stakeholders,” says Maris Catania, Head of Responsible Gambling and Research at Kindred Group.

”We are very proud of having Maris as a part of Kindred Group. We all know and appreciate the hard work she is doing when it comes to Responsible Gambling and are happy that it is also appreciated by the wider industry. “We Build on Trust” is one of Kindred’s values and we want all our customers to enjoy gambling as a form of entertainment. Maris is supporting this with her work,” says Ewout Keuleers, Chief Legal and Compliance Officer at Kindred Group.
