Soft2Bet hires an industry veteran as their new CEO

Boris Chaikin is particularly known for building and managing teams in areas such as marketing, customer support, CRM and general operations. He is no stranger to cross-cultural and cross-national working environments, which are commonplace in the online gambling industry.
Mr Chaikin is positive that his tenure will spur exponential growth and productive advance in the Soft2Bet’s operations. “I hope we’ll see the company reach the forefronts of the industry under my management. I am thrilled to join the young and extremely dynamic team”, says Chaikin.
The newly-appointed CEO has previously simultaneously held the roles of Marketing Director and General Manager at the B2B sportsbook and platform provider OffsideGaming for over 5 years out of his 10 years with the company.
Soft2Bet is sure that Mr. Chaikin appointment is another contribution to making a step-up in service’s quality and further expansion, by optimizing existing operations and leading the company to the B2B market.
