Romania ONJN appoints Dan Iliovici as new President

ONJN, the National Gambling Office of Romania and core regulatory body for industry policy and licensing operations, has confirmed the appointment of Dan Iliovici as its new President.

Iliovici takes over leadership of the ONJN from previous incumbent Odeta Nestor. Iliovici has prior industry experience having held the position of Executive Director of Romanian Gambling business association Rombet.

In 2015, the Romanian government introduced new gambling legislation, focusing on the liberalistion of its online betting/gaming markets, setting its regulation in-line with European Union common market policies and best practices.

Throughout 2016, the ONJN has issued a number of new licenses for operators and industry service providers wanting to join the new market.

Issuing a statement, the Romanian government detailed that ONJN had secured the right candidate to lead business and consumer facing policy, amid a changing industry which had opened up to international competition.
