At Berwick Partners, we believe in the power of cross-pollination of industries.
When appointing to a senior role, minimising the risk of that hire is critical. However, appointing someone with extensive igaming or betting knowledge isn’t the only, nor necessarily the best way of doing this. Whilst not suitable for all roles, gaming leaders are starting to sit up and take note that accessing talent pools outside of sector brings huge diversity of thought and innovation. And in an industry where talent is scarce and M&A activity is rife, out-of-sector hires can help give a business competitive edge, setting them apart from the competition.
Berwick Partners partnered with SG Digital to explore the benefits of joining the industry, misconceptions and what to expect. Watch below and hear from Dylan Slaney (SVP – Gaming) and Lauren Caruana (Account Director), who both built successful careers across FMCG, retail and customer insight prior to joining the industry.
