Jackpot and promotions specialist RISQ has appointed former NMi Gaming executive Julian Borg-Barthet to the new role of director of business development

As NMi’s business development lead since 2011, Borg-Barthet successfuly built the brand’s reputation in global gaming markets. At RISQ, he takes responsibility for managing RISQ’s existing partners, including IWG, Betway, Jackpotjoy, William Hill and GVC. Borg-Barthet will also lead the expansion of RISQ’s operations into international territories.

Borg-Barthet said: “I’ve always based my business relationships on the ability to add value. Working with RISQ, I’ve not only found a string of products that complement the different sides of the gaming industry but also a strong, experienced team that are client-focused and eager to tailor their offering to make it work for the customer.

“The team at RISQ has solid relationships across the insurance world, cultivated after years of risk management and consultancy in the gambling space. They’re trusted and respected. I can’t back a better story than that.”

Tom Mitchell, director of B2B at RISQ, added: “We’re delighted Julian is joining the RISQ team. His experience and contacts in sales and business development are second to none. We feel sure he’ll be a true asset to both RISQ and all our clients, as we bid to broaden our global footprint.”

RISQ’s jackpot platform offers adjustable odds, flexible jackpot totals and variable pay tables, enabling operators to build their own unique jackpot games.
