Glitnor Group has entered a new chapter in its growth plans with Richard Brown stepping up to the role of Chief Executive Officer. 

Brown, who previously held the same position at Gaming Innovation Group, will begin his new role at the start of 2024. 

In a statement to confirm the leadership change, Glitnor Group explained that Brown’s appointment marks “an important and exciting next phase for the business” as it continues to target expansion across global markets.

Richard Brown, Chief Executive Officer at Glitnor Group, said: “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.”

In his previous role at GiG, Brown oversaw a number of “high-profile acquisitions” as well as the expansion into multiple new markets. Glitnor also praised his leadership at GiG which saw the company reach record revenues in Q1 2023.

Brown added: “I was fortunate enough to enjoy an incredible eight years at GiG – with the last four as CEO – but the time was right for me to embrace a new challenge at what I truly believe to be one of the most exciting business groups in the igaming industry, I very much look forward to starting in the New Year.

Jörgen Nordlund, Co-founder at Glitnor Group, concluded: “By appointing Richard, I believe Glitnor has secured one of the industry’s top C-level talents and I’m 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’m 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 can’t wait to work with him as we enter our next phase of development.”
