From one betting shop to the leading provider of sports betting in Germany
The success story of Tipico begins in a small betting shop in Karlsruhe. What started as a tiny business of three students quickly evolved into a flourishing company. Soon, Tipico became one of the leading European betting providers with land-based business and online offer. Since 2004, the company’s headquarters have been in St. Julian’s, Malta. Tipico not only holds licenses for Sports betting and Gaming, but also employs 235 people from 30 nations on the Mediterranean island, being one of the most popular employers there.
Furthermore, Tipico operates branches in Germany, Austria, Croatia and Gibraltar. More than 6,000 people work for the entire Tipico Group and the associated franchise network. Franchise partners operate some 1,100 Tipico shops.
In 2016, the company’s founders sold large parts of Tipico Sportwetten to CVC Capital Partners, one of the world’s leading private equity and investment advisory companies. The management of Tipico Co. Ltd. combines many years of experience in the gaming industry: Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Joachim Baca, Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) Marlon van der Goes and Chief Regulatory Officer (CRO) Karin Klein form part of the management board since 2016. Since 2017 Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Stefan Eck completes the board.
Tipico stands for a sport-related entertainment product that places its customers’ bets in safe hands. As a reliable partner for sport, Tipico is committed to integrity and the highest standards of data security, protection of players and minors.
