EPIC Risk Management’s continued expansion in the US has led to a key appointment, as Teresa Fiore joins the globally-leading gambling harm minimization consultancy as VP of partnerships.
Fiore arrives from PointsBet, where she held the position of responsible gambling and corporate social responsibility manager.
As part of EPIC’s senior leadership team, she will be utilizing knowledge within the gambling industry to ensure that EPIC can continue to work directly with key partners and ensure that harm is minimized wherever possible across all forms of wagering.
Widely experienced in EPIC’s sector of expertise, Fiore previously represented the Massachusetts Gaming Commission for five years as program manager of research and responsible gaming, where she oversaw state-wide responsible gambling programs for land-based casinos.
“This appointment is a key marker of the expansion that EPIC continues to make within the US,” explained CEO Paul Buck.
“We’re delighted to bring Teresa’s extensive knowledge and vital experience into our organization and value the perspective that she can bring from both a regulatory and industry angle.”
Speaking about her arrival at the consultancy, which has worked in 28 different countries during its first decade of activity, Fiore explained:
“I’m very excited to start as the VP of partnerships, overseeing the growth in the US market, which is obviously a huge opportunity for EPIC.
“I have known and think very highly of the EPIC team for a number of years and we’re very much aligned in our thinking and approach to safer gambling.”
EPIC’s client base in the US notably includes leading gambling operators, the NCAA, MLS Players Association and NFLPA’s Professional Athletes Foundation, with lived experience of gambling-related harm at the heart of the company’s delivery model to educate audiences around the potential risks of problem gambling.
