Management Team of the Year
2019 Gaming Intelligence Management Team of the Year
At the top of the tree, GVC has an inspirational chief executive in the shape of Kenneth Alexander.
But that would not be enough alone to secure this prize. Alexander has surrounded himself with key lieutenants such as Andy Hornby and Shay Segev, who get things done.
The motto of the GVC management team could be “nothing is impossible”. Nowhere is this more evident than in its approach to M&A, where it has refused to let competitors, market conditions or regulators get in its way. There is always a solution for this incredibly focussed team. Furthermore, the management’s no-nonsense style is reflected throughout the organisation.
Any one of the operators on the shortlist for this award would have made a worthy winner, but GVC has managed to grow at an incredible speed. It has pulled off the tricky task of integrating huge businesses, while continuing to pay attention to the bottom line and, crucially, continuing to improve its products. That is some feat. Now it looks set to conquer the US. This is a juggernaut that will take some stopping.
