Melvin Ritsema

General Manager – LeoVegas Group

Melvin has been in the industry for almost 15 years, starting his journey as an affiliate in Gibraltar and then steadily moving up. He was an integral part of successfully building and growing Online Casino and Sportsbook operator Royal Panda from their startup days, which eventually sold to LeoVegas Group in 2017.

During his time with Royal Panda, he actively ran crucial aspects of the business from Casino and Sportsbook to CRM, Marketing, and Compliance. After the acquisition, Melvin was made responsible for the entire company as the Managing Director of Royal Panda.

When Royal Panda fully merged the business with the rest of the group, Melvin moved on to Commercial Director and later General Manager of the group. As General Manager he was initially responsible for Asia, Latin America, & New Zealand, and is currently responsible for new strategic projects.
