Toronto-listed Bragg Gaming Group has restructured its board of directors with the addition of three new members, including gaming industry veteran Jim Ryan.

Ryan joins the company’s board along with securities lawyer Paul Pathak and Bragg chief financial officer Akshay Kumar.

“We’re delighted that Jim, Paul and Akshay have agreed to join the board,” said Bragg CEO Dominic Mansour. “We’re very focused on our objective of developing into a global gaming force, and we need a board with the skills to support that growth.

“Jim and Akshay both bring extensive gaming industry experience to the team, and Paul’s expertise in M&A will be instrumental to our growth plan.”

Former digital entertainment co-CEO Ryan is currently chief executive of Pala Interactive, and holds board roles at JPJ Group, Gaming Realms, Pala Interactive and Fralis.

“I’m pleased to join Bragg in this exciting growth phase,” said Ryan. “With an experienced gaming industry leader like Dominic at the helm of a new management team, and the unlimited potential of the group’s three main properties; Oryx Gaming, GiveMeSport and GiveMeBet, I’m confident that Bragg will continue its upward trajectory.”

Paul Pathak, name partner at Chitiz Pathak is an established securities and investment industry lawyer, and currently serves as a director of JPJ Group, the Intertain Group Limited and Wayland Group.

Kumar was appointed CFO of Bragg last December, having previously held financial leadership roles at NetPlay, Betsson and Sporting Index.

Shares in Bragg Gaming Group Inc (CVE:BRAG) closed at CAD$0.61 per share in Toronto Wednesday.
