Ryan Collinge joins firm with 20 years’ industry experience and will be tasked with expanding the company’s global footprint following rollout of latest products.
Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) has appointed Ryan Collinge as the group’s new senior vice-president of business development for its Platform and Sportsbook division.
Collinge, a 20-plus year industry veteran, arrives from Blueprint Gaming, having spent seven years with the firm as group director after joining the supplier in January 2017.
Prior to that, he was with Playnation for four-and-a-half-years in the role of executive sales director from March 2012 to September 2016.
Collinge also spent more than nine years with Inspired Gaming across a series of roles between 2003 and 2012, culminating in his position as gaming, product and entertainment manager.
At GiG, Collinge will be tasked with expanding the group’s global footprint and ensuring sustained growth following the launch of the Malta-based firm’s X-suite platform and AI-led features such as DataX and LogicX.
Richard Carter, GiG Platform and Sportsbook CEO, said Collinge’s arrival will continue to push the firm forward.
Carter commented: “We have made some excellent hires over the past few months and Ryan is another fantastic addition to our senior team. His arrival will further help propel GiG forward to significantly scale revenue and acquire accomplished new partners.
“With an exceptional reputation and strong background in igaming, I am certain his high-level knowledge of the industry and strategic approach will be invaluable to GiG during this rapid period of growth, and will help to deliver on the opportunities that lie ahead.”
On his appointment, Collinge said: Joining GiG at this time was too exciting an opportunity to pass up given the enormous potential of the business.
“I have been highly impressed with the new X-suite of products and the plans that the executive team have in place for the future.”
