I have over 25 years of experience working in the betting and gaming industry including over 10 years working at C Level positions with a range of leading companies across the globe. Most recently I have worked in partnership with gaming companies to improve the operational efficiency and commercial effectiveness of the organisations. As the dynamics of the international gaming business change and completion and pressure on margins tighten I have increasingly focused my attention on advising client on the benefits of robotic automation. I am passionate about reducing costs and inefficiencies in the business I advise and see robotic automation as a key tool to help achieve this.
From my experiences working across the globe I brings a unique range of multi-cultural, multi-product and multi-platform experience and skills to our clients businesses. My management qualifications include an M.B.A.
My industry experience began with 13 years at Ladbrokes in a variety of operational roles. Blockbuster Video provided me with senior management success in the retail leisure sector outside of gaming. I returned to the sector with an operational role at Victor Chandler International running their worldwide business. Successes here included the continued growth of the sports betting business, launch of the poker site and the expansion of the online casino business.
As the Managing Director for Victor Chandler’s Asian businesses I successfully launched the Chinese Sportsbook and a live dealer product. I was part of the team advising the Thai Government regarding the introduction of appropriate legislation for gaming.
Latterly I worked as CEO for a subsidiary of Sugal and Damani one of the main players in the Indian lottery business setting up their online gaming activities in India.
Outside of work I enjoy running, reading and the occasional glass of red wine.
