Fleiderman to focus the team on rapid growth, regulated markets, international expansion and the omni-channel opportunity after an intense start-up year with major client deliveries achieved across the EU, African, and North and Latin American regions.

A GAME ABOVE, the leading customer experience campaigns and consulting agency specialising in work for operator and supplier clients across regulated iGaming markets, are proud to announce the appointment of Nicolas Fleiderman as Chief Executive Officer.

Nicolas commences duties as CEO with immediate effect following the recent first anniversary of A GAME ABOVE and the planned departure of interim CEO Steen Madsen.

“Since my first meeting with the A GAME ABOVE team last year I was fascinated by their business model and the team’s confidence in their unique campaigns creating loyal and passionate customers through all stages of the value chain. Working together on a shared client project at that time I saw first-hand how dramatically they can impact the P&L, in some cases within just days of a campaign launch. The more we talked about the future of the industry, given our different perspectives, the more I felt I could add the required leadership and direction that would make for a powerful sum of the parts. I’m extremely happy to join a motivated and passionate team building unique client propositions with so many creative assets that plug, play and perform with to deliver positive ROI across the omni-channel opportunity – something of an open goal right now, for those who can clearly establish a cost-effective conversion benchmark,” said Nicolas Fleiderman, Chief Executive Officer at A GAME ABOVE.

Fleiderman joins the marketing and advisory disruptor at a tipping point for the iGaming industry internationally. The traditional business models look increasingly vulnerable in the face of regulation itself, and its impact upon operator cost per acquisition budgets, as well as investor demands for improved performance across the PLC sector. Cost commitments for operators are rising, everywhere, and the margin left is a stark reminder of the impact of regulation across everything.

“Our performance over 2020 included game-changing campaigns for our clients, featuring highlights such as a more than 200% month-on-month revenue increase, and even greater impact upon GGR, across a casino-only operator in a regulated US State, and a record-breaking sportsbook launch, delivering super-charged sign-ups, activity and maintenance of that audience as they came for more than just a bonus offer and a few bets to play it through. They came for the game above the gambling. Attention across the entire value chain of player lifecycle has to become the standard model for the future simply as the results far exceed any alternatives,” said Chief Operating Officer for A GAME ABOVE, Jakob Famme.

Nicolas joins the team with a distinguished record and reputation across the betting and gaming industry. A summary of his career highlights includes:

  • Senior teams: C-Level positions with 15 gaming companies, internationally
  • Value generation: Multi-million dollar M&A and management exits realised for established businesses led by Nicolas
  • Government and Advisory Board appointments: Positions on large State-owned companies and PLCs
  • Innovation: Development and engineering across a dozen iGaming platforms, across all key product verticals
  • Advisory: A consultant of record across dozens of key projects and jurisdictions

“An industry veteran of Nicolas’ calibre is totally the right call for the A GAME ABOVE team at this point in the business mission. The commitment to detail and delivery is obvious across Jakob and Ismail’s experience and day-to-day. As President, I’m looking for the medium to long-term performance and structure that builds reliably to success. Nicolas’ appointment delivers a dealmaker and sole decision-maker with a solid track record that speaks to only one outcome: getting the job done, and done well. I’m very much looking forward to working with him” said Bill Pascrell, III, President of A GAME ABOVE.
