Global Market Advisors (GMA), a hospitality consulting firm serving the gaming, sports betting and lodging industries, announced last month that John English is joining the firm as a partner, serving as managing director of GMA’s new sports betting and technology division.
“John is an expert and pioneer in the sports betting industry,” said GMA Managing Partner Steve Gallaway. “His knowledge and insights are invaluable, a commodity to which very few individuals or companies have access to. John will be a great asset to the GMA team as sports betting continues to evolve globally.”
English most recently served as president of WEBE Gaming, a global operator of sports books, social gaming and lottery products. He served with American Wagering when the company became the first entity to receive a license in Nevada for mobile sports wagering. William Hill later purchased the company. He also has worked for Betfair and Gaming Arts.
