Following a thorough executive search process, the Commissioners of the Alderney Gambling Control Commission (AGCC) have appointed Monday Andrew Gellatly to the position of executive director of the regulator.
Gellatly brings to Alderney his expansive global network and more than 25 years of experience in the online gambling industry, the regulator notes. He has an extensive professional background in journalism, consulting and research.
Lord Faulkner of Worcester, chair of the AGCC, said: “Andrew has established himself as a trusted voice in the global gambling industry. His career has been built on independence, impartiality, and a deep knowledge of the sector.”
“We look forward to Andrew representing the ACGG on the global stage, developing our strategy and ensuring our regulatory approach continues to meet the needs of licensees and operators," Lord Faulkner added.
Gellatly founded both iGaming Business and VIXIO GamblingCompliance, knowledge portals in the gambling industry, and is a former Financial Times reporter on sports and gaming. He has also led research on regulatory policy for governments, regulators, advisors and operators worldwide.
The newly appointed executive director stated: “As the global online gambling market becomes more diversified and complex, there could be no better time for me to join the Alderney Gambling Control Commission.”
“Newly opening markets from Canada to Latin America are creating unprecedented opportunities for global facing businesses, with new products and new delivery channels. I will be extending Alderney’s already established international profile as a collaborative, trusted and supportive regulator working with the highest quality brands and companies,” he added.
The new executive director will be only the third in the history of the Commission and will replace outgoing executive director Jorn Starck, who first joined the AGCC in 2007, and has led the regulator since 2015.
