Continent 8 appoints Melissa Lamb as sales account director

Continent 8 Technologies has strengthened its global sales team with the appointment of Melissa Lamb as sales account director.

As part of Continent 8’s Ta’ Xbiex office she will be tasked with expanding the online gaming infrastructure provider’s customer base both in Malta and global markets.

“It’s really exciting to be working with Continent 8, a visionary organisation that protects mission-critical data for some of the world’s biggest online gaming brands,” Lamb commented.

“Malta is an international hub of gaming excellence and the jurisdiction of choice for a number of our existing clients. I will be working closely with colleagues around the world, from Miami to Manila, to support our clients with solutions. Specifically, this includes our co-location and Cloud services, as well as our world-class cybersecurity products such as DDoS and WAF.”

Through its dual data centres within Malta, Continent 8 Technologies connects to over 60 locations across Europe, Asia and the Americas. Lamb brings with her a wealth of experience in both Maltese and global markets, having held prior roles as group VIP and event manager at Betsson Group, and as a partner of the Hill and Lamb business consultancy, among others.

David Black, managing director (EMEA), Continent 8 Technologies, said: “We were delighted and humbled by the exceptional candidates showing interest in Continent 8 for this role. In the end Melissa’s knowledge, not only of the local business community but also her extensive international experience, made her the ideal candidate. We are delighted  she chose to work for Continent 8 and I have no doubt she will be a great asset to our growing business, and for Malta.”
