We create games that unlock the opportunities created by the convergence of social gaming and real money gambling.
With the legalisation of Online Gambling in more countries, the gaming and wagering market sectors are now truly global.
To grow in this environment, wagering companies need to innovate. Whilst some are trying to innovate, most are trying to outspend each other by acquiring their competitors, offering bigger customer incentives and licensing products (white labelling) that are similar to those already in existence.
At this critical point in the development of the global gaming and wagering sectors, Six Faces has assembled a formidable group of people, ideas, and intellectual property to target the opportunities available.
Our vision is to develop genuine, new, online wagering products that will realise the opportunities created by the convergence of social media and social gaming with real money gambling.
Our team’s decades of experience, glowing independent research and the advice of Senior Industry Executives tells us that our approach and our new, flagship product Swopstakes is new and unique.
We are scheduled to bring this original, new online game to market in a format that will create life changing wins for players and game changing revenue for our wagering partners.
Our challenge is to create online entertainment that combines social games with wagering outcomes to:
- Give wagering operators a cohesive link between social media, betting and games.
- Deliver real innovation – with unique offers per operator (creating value and better experiences rather than taking price).
- Decrease new customer acquisition costs and drive up competitors costs through innovative games and life changing wins.
- Encourage the development of online communities and interaction between members of these communities.

Shaun has held senior positions in sales, technology, retail planning, product development, project and channels management in leading organisations.

Shaun loves to challenge convention & conventional thinking. His keen intellect and passion help inspire the skills and talents of the Six Faces Team.
Damian Kawa is a highly self-motivated individual driven by values and a vision to succeed. His rich background in wagering product development and customer knowledge enables him to conceptualise products and support development in an enthusiastic and professional manner.
Damian’s experience in wagering began over 20 years ago, working “on course” at Elwick and the Hobart Showgrounds. He then moved on to become a Retail Outlet Manager for TOTE Tasmania of multiple TOTE retail shops.
Five years prior to Six Faces, Damian worked with Agility Interactive, a company owned by TOTE Tasmania, in various consulting and managerial positions. Agility Interactive developed advanced wagering and gaming solutions for worldwide business’s and customers. Damian initially assisted development as Interactive Retail Consultant, with his years of outlet based management assisting in key areas. Damian quickly became part of the management team, creating viable solutions for the business and moved into a Business Development Manager and Product Manager to several high profile products including the TOTE’s Wagering API and Wagering Rewards system.
Before co-founding Six Faces, Damian maintained the role of Senior Manager – Professional Platforms. This position was the culmination of years of development and management of wagering platforms, allowing Damian to develop and manage sophisticated wagering products and applications.
Glen has held numerous executive positions in digital start-ups and digital agencies. He has an immense body of knowledge in commercialisation, digital strategy, and online user experience planning.
As former Managing Director of a large digital agency Glen personally worked with product managers, executives, and directors at TOTE Tasmania and Agility Interactive between 2005-2012 to form consumer acquisition strategies, product development plans, product integration strategies and digital marketing direction. Working closely with luminaries in the wagering industry in the formative years of 2005-2007 Glen gained intimate working knowledge of the professional punting arena and collaborated on a niche betting application.
As an executive Director of a technology incubator Glen managed a small number of equity placements in digital start-ups in the subscription commerce and e-tourism spaces in the years leading up to founding Six Faces. Glen also held a committee seat with Angel Investors Tasmania and acted as the primary ‘tech’ investment screener where he tested and reviewed commercialisation plans and opportunities on behalf of the local angel investors.
Glen is also presently a Digital Director at a full service Advertising Agency and is a highly experienced digital marketer and digital strategist.
Glen brings to Six Faces an exceptional commercial acumen and a rare ability to distil broad concepts down to workable commercial plans.
He has worked with teams to successfully develop and implement business strategies, change management programs and new product developments in large corporates, privately owned companies and eCommerce start-ups. Mike’s roles in the wagering space include Group Business Manager for TAB Limited and National Marketing Manager for TOTE Tasmania.
