“We are grateful to have Thorsten join the award-winning GLI Client Solutions team,” said GLI Senior Vice President of Government Relations and General Counsel Kevin Mullally in a statement. “His many skills, and extensive regulatory and information technology background will assist GLI’s clients with land-based and online gaming, sports betting, lottery, regulatory, and technology needs. As a former regulator and longtime IT professional, he has presented and trained on a variety of products, and his extensive industry knowledge and experience as a trainer will augment our talented lineup of GLI University faculty.”

Toms also served as interim executive director during his tenure with Gun Lake. He has experience in developing automated systems to make regulatory processes more efficient, and developing and conducting compliance audits, most recently involving igaming and sports betting.

“Thorsten is well known in the Tribal regulatory community and has more than a decade of experience assisting and training regulators,” said GLI Client Solutions Team Manager Kelly Myers. “He has a deep understanding of information technology and a gift for automating systems. He is highly skilled at clearly communicating technical information to a non-technical audience, and we are excited to have him join our diverse and talented team.”
