Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) is searching for a new chief executive for its platform business, with Richard Brown preparing to step down by the end of 2023.

Gaming Innovation Group’s board announced late Monday (29 May) that it had agreed Brown would depart his role on 31 December 2023.

It comes in the wake of a strategic review that could see GiG split into two independent corporate entities. The affiliate arm GiG Media, led by CMO Jonas Warrer, will continue under its current leadership, meaning the platform and sportsbook business is on the hunt for a new CEO.

During his tenure as CEO, the group has continued to expand into new markets, completed major acquisitions, sold off its B2C assets to Betsson and delivered record revenues in Q1 2023.
