Since The Gambling Act 2005 first came into effect over a decade ago, the UK gaming sector has grown exponentially, and by the end of 2017 the industry’s income (or “gross gambling yield”) had reached £14 billion. So it’s no surprise that such rich rewards have attracted a number of aggressive new market entrants.
Armed with impressive digital know-how, these disruptive newcomers have revolutionized the UK gambling industry, forcing established players to quickly follow their lead in pursuit of an increasingly diverse customer base.
To compete is such a dynamic environment, Gambling and Gaming firms must first out-perform their rivals in attracting the brightest talent. They must recruit passionate leaders with the technical ability to successfully deploy digital innovations, and the marketing skills to effectively engage new audiences. So today’s gambling executives must be digital pioneers, yet grounded in the fundamentals of traditional gambling markets.
