Continent 8 Technologies Strengthens Team with Carl Bonner Appointment
Continent 8 Technologies, a leading provider of managed hosting, connectivity, cloud, and security solutions for the global online gambling industry, has recently expanded its global sales team by appointing Carl Bonner as the new Regional Sales Director. This strategic hire comes at a pivotal time, as the demand for Continent 8’s specialized services continues to grow with the expansion of regulated online gambling in key markets globally.
Carl Bonner brings a rich background in cloud technology, having previously worked at Amazon Web Services (AWS) for over three years. During his tenure at AWS, he was instrumental in co-founding the Betting & Gaming division, where he managed accounts for numerous notable iGaming brands, assisting them with various AWS services.
Before joining AWS, Carl held significant positions at Oracle, a prominent cloud-based enterprise software company. His extensive experience includes working with major European brands such as Pret a Manger, WHSmith, Shazam, UiPath, and ESET, where he played a key role in advancing their cloud strategies and implementations.
In his new role at Continent 8, Carl will leverage his considerable expertise to support the company’s multi-cloud strategy and expand its customer base, particularly focusing on the burgeoning US iGaming market. Continent 8’s comprehensive multi-cloud approach encompasses regulated Public Cloud, Private Cloud, and Hyperscale Cloud solutions. The company’s status as an AWS Advanced Tier Consulting Partner enables it to offer specialized assistance to customers with AWS projects. Additionally, as a Microsoft Silver Partner, Continent 8 enhances its cloud services with Microsoft Azure Stack, further solidifying its position as a versatile and resourceful provider in the igaming industry.
Brian B. Koh, Chief Commercial Officer at Continent 8 Technologies, said: “I’d like to welcome Carl to our global sales team and look forward to benefitting from his unrivalled experience with supporting well-known brands in the iGaming sector with cloud-based solutions.

Carl Bonner, Regional Sales Director at Continent 8 Technologies, added: “Joining Continent 8 allows me to share my passion for cloud-based solutions with operators and suppliers in the iGaming industry, making them aware of the huge upsides they can unlock by utilising the cloud.
