Paysafe wins two payment awards

(PRESS RELEASE) — Paysafe, a leading specialised payments platform, has won in two categories at the Payments Awards which took place in London on Wednesday, 13 November. The company was named winner of the ‘Best Online Payments Solution – Consumer’ and ‘Blockchain or Cryptocurrency Initiative of the Year’ in partnership with Coinbase.

Now in their seventh year, the Payments Awards recognise and celebrate companies which have demonstrated excellence and innovation in the payments space. Winning companies are those that have been deemed to launch or implement the most outstanding payments solutions, initiatives and projects during the past year.

The ‘Best Online Payments Solution – Consumer’ accolade recognises Paysafe’s suite of online consumer payment methods, including its eCash services paysafecard and Paysafecash, its digital wallets Skrill and NETELLER, its payment by bank transfer solution Rapid Transfer and its pay by invoice or instalment product, Paysafe Pay Later.

The ‘Blockchain or Cryptocurrency Initiative of the Year’ award was achieved for the launch of the Coinbase Card – a Visa debit card, issued by Paysafe, which is the first to directly link to the major cryptocurrency exchange in the UK & Europe. The card allows consumers to spend the value of their crypto in real-world online and brick-and-mortar transactions, just like a traditional purchase in fiat currency.

“I am so proud of the team for this achievement. For such a broad range of our consumer payment solutions to be recognised in this way is nothing short of fantastic,” said Danny Chazonoff, Chief Commercial Officer at Paysafe. “We’re continuing to evolve and enhance our payments portfolio and customer experience to make this complex area simple for both businesses and consumers.”

In addition to winning at the Payments Awards, last month Paysafe was shortlisted alongside Coinbase in ‘Best B2C Payments Program’ at the Emerging Payments Awards 2019.

GiG appoints Richard Brown as new CEO

(PRESS RELEASE) — Gaming Innovation Group Inc. is pleased to announce the appointment of Richard Brown as Chief Executive Officer effective today. Richard Brown previously held the position of Chief Operating Officer of GiG.

Mr. Brown joined GiG in February 2017 as Managing Director for GiG’s media business, after nearly two years, he progressed to Chief Digital Officer and subsequently took the position of Chief Operating Officer. He assumed the position as acting CEO on 5 September when the Board decided to change leadership of the Company, replacing GiG’s former CEO and co-founder Robin Reed. In this short time, he has shown effective stewardship and gained the full backing and a strong mandate from the Board to take the position as the CEO of GiG.

The appointment of Mr Brown comes after a short, rigorous, evaluation and selection process to identify the right candidate to position GiG for the long term. He has a strong industry and commercial background, a solid track record focusing both on positioning and execution and has earned respect from both customers and employees. At GiG, he has been responsible for delivering organisational excellence and aligning the business to strategic initiatives.

Prior to joining GiG, Richard worked in various senior and directorial roles in companies such as Highlight Media Group, Web Guide Partner and THG Sports delivering exceptional results in line with strategic goals.

Richard Brown will be responsible for the positioning of GiG and for aligning people, technology, product and process development to drive innovation and execution across all verticals. He will initially start a strategic review to identify value-creating opportunities, reduce complexity, improve efficiency and to optimise the company for delivery.

Richard Brown, Chief Executive Officer of GiG, says, “I am delighted to accept the position of CEO for Gaming Innovation Group, having worked here for the past four years I see a massive potential for the Company. While industry headwinds may have dampened progress in 2019, I am extremely excited about the future potential of the group and this new phase of the company’s life cycle. My focus will be on delivery, execution and optimisation, putting us on a path for great focus and renewed growth.

I would like to pass a special thanks to all the people within GiG past and present, who have been supportive of me and I am immensely proud of the work they are doing and the effort all the teams apply to their work. With their help, I am convinced that we will be successful in achieving our goal in providing value to our shareholders.”

Petter Nylander, GiG’s Chairman of the Board, commented, “The Board is delighted to appoint Richard Brown as the CEO of GiG. He is the best person to drive the necessary changes and provide leadership as the company now enters the next phase of its development. The gambling industry is experiencing a challenging period of structural change. However, it is still backed by fundamental strong underlying growth and we need to plan and position ourselves to be most relevant to our partners and end users in order to benefit and accelerate our sustainable growth.

Richard has a strong track record of operational excellence and will be focusing on making the Company more efficient by creating a clear and directional strategy, reducing costs and driving execution. The strategic intent of GiG remains unchanged; to be the global operator and partner for strong brands in iGaming, with a sweetspot in taking an offline casino brand to a strong online offering. I am convinced that Richard will be able to create significant shareholder value by releasing the Company’s full potential.”
