Isaacs joins SBTech with 20 years’ gaming experience across a series of senior management positions and will be responsible for further growing the company’s rapidly expanding US presence. Since the market opened in mid-2018 SBTech has completed and gone live with several partnership agreements with leading casinos in regulated States including New Jersey and Mississippi.
Isaacs spent the last four years as CEO and board member of Scientific Games and was responsible for a series of major mergers and acquisitions and growing the global lottery and gaming supplier from US$1.3 billion to US$2.9 billion in revenues in just two years.
“We’re thrilled that someone of Gavin’s caliber, credibility and experience has chosen to join SBTech. This is a huge coup for the business,” said Richard Carter, CEO of SBTech.
“Gavin’s two decades of successfully leading, transforming, and acquiring some of the biggest businesses in the gaming sector will be a massive advantage for us, particularly in the US where we have already partnered and gone live with several large brands across multiple states and where there are many more opportunities to grow.”
