Following a sustained period of growth driven by the success of its B2C brands LuckyCasino and HappyCasino, and the increasing popularity of its B2B content house Swintt, Glitnor Group has announced Richard Brown will take up the position of the company’s new Chief Executive Officer, effective January 2024.
Previously CEO at Gaming Innovation Group, Brown will arrive at Glitnor with a wealth of industry experience under his belt and the expertise to drive the business to even greater heights.
As GiG’s CEO, he oversaw a highly successful period of growth, during which the company entered multiple new markets and completed a number of high-profile acquisitions. He will now use his strong leadership and business development skills to achieve similar results for Glitnor.
Brown will take the reins at Glitnor at the beginning of 2024 ahead of what promises to be an important and exciting next phase for the business. The group targets further global expansion by continuing to build and nurture strong iGaming operations and games development studios in Europe, North America and LatAm.
Now boasting around 200 team members worldwide, Glitnor was shortlisted for three separate categories at the EGR Nordics Awards in February, including the coveted Employer of the Year 2023. Its B2B content house, Swintt, was also recognised for its success by being shortlisted for five categories at the recent EGR B2B Awards.
Jörgen Nordlund, Co-founder at Glitnor Group, says: “By appointing Richard, I believe Glitnor has secured one of the industry’s top C-level talents and I am looking forward to the positive impact he’ll have on our business as we look to strengthen our brands and enter more markets in the future.
“Given the successful nature of his time at GiG and the wealth of iGaming experience he has in general, I am certain Richard has all of the necessary skills to help take Glitnor to a new level and I think I speak for everyone when I say we cannot wait to work with him as we enter our next phase of development.”
Richard Brown adds: “I am honoured to take on the role of CEO of Glitnor Group. The teams have built a fantastic position in the industry, and I look forward to working with them to further capitalise on the number of opportunities the business has ahead of it.
“The Group’s long-term ambition is impressive, supported by founders with a proven track record of success, and I am extremely excited to help add value towards achieving those goals for the business, the groups staff and its shareholders.”
