Based in GLI’s Sydney lab, Wilson will work with land-based, iGaming and lottery clients in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. He joins the company with a “unique skill set and has an impressive background in leadership and management roles throughout his career,” GLI stated.
He most recently served as a Professional Year instructor at Performance Education in Sydney, where he trained students on strategies for successfully integrating into the Australian business workforce. Wilson has also served as a Business Instructor at Atwea Community College in Newcastle and Queen Ann College in Sydney.
Previously, he served as Store Manager, Group Manager, and Area Manager throughout a long career at a major retail chain in Australia, where he opened stores and developed teams at all levels.
“We are thrilled to welcome Barrie to the GLI team,” said APAC General Manager Samantha Powell. “His diverse background of leadership and business will be extremely beneficial to GLI’s clients.
“In particular, his abilities to help people grow beyond their current borders and to explore new territories will be very helpful to clients who want to expand their footprint.”
GLI last week promoted veteran Ginnie Hollis to the role of Director of Engineering. In her new position, Hollis will work closely with many of the company’s iGaming clients to streamline processes and testing services.
She will also work to onboard new clients and coordinate any communication between operators, regulators and suppliers regarding their regulatory and operational needs.
