Under Reed’s stewardship, GiG established an aggressive M&A growth strategy, acquiring multiple assets to establish its B2C and B2B verticals.Reed’s growth strategy would see GIG undertake its first IPO on the Oslo Bors in 2015, with the company completing a transfer to the larger Stockholm Nasdaq this year.Petter Nylander, Chairman of the Board of GiG, commented: “Robin has played a crucial part in building a unique one-stop global technology provider and we all owe him our sincere gratitude for this.

We are focusing on securing potential contracts within the B2B Platform services and on servicing our many customers with fully managed and component solutions.“We will continue the development of the Media services and the sportsbook, not least to leverage GiG’s opportunities in the US. We will also continue driving the B2C Gaming operators with a focus on growth in new markets.” Related Articles Share StumbleUpon GiG ups code security oversight with Checkmarx July 10, 2020 Sharelast_img read more
