"Lee recommended me for a settlement position in Malta at Betway Sportsbook which I ended up getting with his help. Since then I have been promoted to my dream job as a US sports trader after just a year at the company. Without his help I probably would have given up on my goal of becoming a sports trader and would of likely pursued an alternative career path."
