Dudnjik brings more than a decade of experience to his new position.

Bragg Gaming Group has added Simon Dudnjik to its senior executive team. Dudnjik joined the team January 1 as the Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO).

His responsibilities as CHRO involve overseeing people functions in the company’s Las Vegas, Reno, Toronto, Malta, London and Chennai offices. He will also focus on expanding and managing the organization's workforce around the globe.

Prior to his time with Bragg, Dudnjik worked for Sportradar Group in various senior roles, including as the VP, People Partnering.

Company CEO Matevž Mazij commented, “As we grow it is essential that we continue to attract the right talent in all of our offices, and that we continue to build on our strong company culture.

“With his many years of experience building motivated, successful teams in the international iGaming technology sector, I am delighted to now welcome Simon into the senior leadership team at Bragg to help us meet and exceed our ambitious growth targets.”

Dudnjik took a moment to share his excitement regarding his new role by saying, “I have long been aware of Bragg – formerly known as Oryx Gaming here in Slovenia – and its reputation as a tier 1 technology employer in the region, so I am honored to now be joining the team as CHRO.

“In the last 12 months, the Company has opened new offices in Las Vegas and Malta, and we also continue to expand in Ljubljana and in our other locations to meet the demand of this rapidly expanding business. We have great foundations to build on at Bragg and I can’t wait to get started.”
