On January 5, 2022, Elys Game Technology, Corp. (the “Company” or “Elys”) promoted Carlo Reali, age 53, to the role of Interim Chief Financial Officer and Principal Accounting Officer.

Prior to joining the Company, Mr. Reali was the Chairman and Executive Financial Manager of S.I.S. S.r.l. from January 2001 until its acquisition in July 2015 by SNAI S.p.A., a leader in the Italian gaming market, and remained with SNAI as Executive Finance Manager until August 2016.
