Alderney’s Gambling Control Commission said it has appointed Andrew Gellatly as executive director, replacing Jorn Starck who has led the regulator since 2015.
Gellatly is the founder of iGaming Business and VIXIO Gambling Compliance and has more than 25 years of experience in the online gambling industry.
“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,” AGCC chair Lord Faulkner of Worcester said.
“We look forward to Andrew representing the AGCC on the global stage, developing our strategy and ensuring our regulatory approach continues to meet the needs of licensees and operators.”
Gellatly is the third executive director in the history of the commission. He joins as more jurisdictions are opening up and regulating online gambling.
“Newly opening markets from Canada to Latin America are creating unprecedented opportunities for global facing businesses, with new products and new delivery channels,” he said. “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.”
The Alderney Gambling Control Commission was founded in 2000. According to a BBC report earlier this year, the commission generated almost GBP2 million in revenue for the island in 2021, compared with GBP1.74 million the prior year.
As at 31st December 2021, there were 9 registered B2C only licence/certificate holders and 22 B2B only licence/certificate holders. In addition, there were 11 registered B2C and B2B combined licence/certificate holders and 12 CSAC holders.
