Pedro was until recently Head of Operations for an online gambling operator working in a number of markets and across several jurisdictions. He has a degree in Psychology and is a trained counsellor registered with the BACP and has experience and knowledge of the issues which affect problem gamblers from both the gambling industry and therapeutic support service perspectives.

Commenting on Pedro's appointment Elaine Smethurst said "Gambling Therapy is delivering a much needed service in many countries around the world and is often the first point of contact for someone concerned about problem gambling. Pedro's combination of skills and experience are the perfect fit for the role and I look forward to working with him and the team to provide Gambling Therapy support to more people and in more languages providing help, advice and support to anyone adversely affected by problem gambling."
