Richard Brown to Spearhead Glitnor as Its New CEO

The executive with more than a decade of experience within the gambling vertical will assume his new role in January next year

The fast-growing and globally-recognized iGaming company, Glitnor Group, announced its plans to strengthen its C-suite with a strategic new appointment. On Monday, the company revealed that it selected the gambling industry expert with extensive experience, Richard Brown, for the role of chief executive officer (CEO).

Judging by the recent announcement, the executive, who has more than a decade of experience within the gambling vertical, will step into the new CEO role effective from January 2024. As CEO, Brown is expected to play a key role in the growth and expansion of Glitnor within the online gambling vertical.

His appointment comes on the heels of constant growth reported by the company with its business-to-customer brands HappyCasino and LuckyCasino. At the same time, Glitnor continues to expand within the business-to-business (B2B) vertical and Brown is expected to oversee such processes too.

Brown’s professional background includes nearly eight years with the leading gaming and entertainment company, Gaming Innovation Group (GiG). For nearly four years, he spearheaded GiG as its CEO, which resulted in significant benefits, including record revenues reported for the first quarter of this year.

Similarly to the success at GiG, Brown is expected to leverage his extensive knowledge and insight to help Glitnor grow further. With the start of 2024 and his appointment as CEO, the company plans to keep up the positive momentum gained this year and expand its presence in strategic iGaming markets within Latin America, North America, as well as Europe.

Brown Is Excited to Join Glitnor’s C-Suite

Sharing his excitement, Brown said that he is delighted to become a part of the C-suite and Glitnor and play a key role in the company’s expansion. “The teams have built a fantastic position in the industry and I look forward to working with them to further capitalize on the number of opportunities the business has ahead of it,” he said.

I am honored to take on the role of CEO of Glitnor Group.
