GiG Appoints Ryan Collinge as SVP to Propel Business Development

Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) has bolstered its leadership team by appointing Ryan Collinge, formerly of Blueprint Gaming and Gauselmann Group, as the Senior Vice President of Business Development for Platform and Sportsbook. This move is part of GiG’s ongoing strategy to enhance its commercial capabilities and broaden the adoption of its innovative X-Suite products.

Collinge, who has over two decades of experience in the igaming industry, is recognized for his significant contributions to commercial growth, having secured multi-million euro contracts in both the retail and online sectors for Blueprint Gaming and the Gauselmann Group over the past seven years.

Renowned for his expertise in customer relations, Collinge has been instrumental in negotiating high-profile contracts that have driven revenue increases across both emerging and established regulated markets. His notable achievements include facilitating a management buyout of Playnation with Palatine PE, which was subsequently sold to Novomatic in 2015.

In his new role at GiG, Collinge will be crucial to the company’s strategic commercial plans, as outlined by Chief Business Officer Andrew Cochrane. These initiatives are aimed at reinforcing GiG’s industry leadership, expanding its global presence, and promoting continuous growth. GiG is committed to combining superior products and services with top-tier industry talent to remain at the forefront of providing innovative igaming solutions.

Following the introduction of its X-Suite Platform CoreX, Sportsbook SportX, and AI-driven features DataX and LogicX, GiG has seen a marked increase in interest. The company’s latest technology utilizes AI and data solutions to offer secure, scalable, and user-centric end-to-end features designed to optimize operator growth opportunities.

GiG will be showcasing its full range of X-Suite products at ICE London 2024, at Stand N9-140, demonstrating its commitment to advancing igaming technology and solutions.

Richard Carter, CEO for Platform and Sportsbook at GiG, said: “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.”

Andrew Cochrane, CBO for Platform and Sportsbook at GiG, said: “Ryan’s arrival provides a fantastic boost to our business development efforts, as we continue to enjoy a significant escalation in interest across all business verticals since the launch of our X-Suite solutions.

His experience and proven track-record at driving commercial successes is undeniably impressive. His appointment affirms our ability to attract some of the very best talent our industry has to offer and helps to further cement our belief that we have a very exciting future ahead of us.”

Ryan Collinge, Senior Vice President at GiG, 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. We go into ICE and 2024 full of ambition and anticipation for what we can achieve together.”
