Global Market Advisors LLC (GMA), a U.S.-based business consultancy, announced on Thursday that John English was joining the firm as a partner, serving as the managing director of its new sports betting and technology division.
“John is an expert and pioneer in the sports betting industry. His knowledge and insights are invaluable; a commodity to which very few individuals or companies has access. John will be a great asset to the GMA team as sports betting continues to evolve globally,” GMA managing partner Steve Gallaway was cited in the Thursday announcement as stating.
The same release also noted GMA’s release of a white paper on sports betting business in the U.S., and said Mr English had been a “key participant” in its production.
Mr English founded WEBE Gaming LLC, a Las Vegas, Nevada-based firm. Its website describes the business as a “brand licensing and private equity investment holding company, specialising in casino gaming and related fields.
He is also founder and president of WEBE Worldwide, described as a global operator, developer, and distributor of sports betting, social, casino, and lottery products for the regulated gaming industry, and that has offices in the U.S. and China.
Mr English spent a brief period from late 2013 helping the online betting brand Betfair develop its business in Asia and the Americas. WEBE’s website also says he was “instrumental” in the acquisition of American Wagering Inc by British betting brand William Hill.
He was also described as an equity partner in the first company to receive the Nevada Gaming Control Board’s approval for mobile sports wagering.
