Industry risk management and jackpot insurance firm RISQ has moved to strengthen its commercial arm confirming the appointment of Julian Borg-Barthet as new Business Development Director.

Borg-Barthet joins RISQ senior management team, from gambling regulatory compliance and auditing firm NMi-Gaming, where he led commercial divisions for a period of seven years, until the firm recent acquisition by Gaming Labs International (GLI).

Confirming the appointment of Borg-Barthet, Tom Mitchell, Director of B2B at RISQ, said: “We’re delighted Julian is joining the RISQ team. His experience and contacts in sales and business development are second to none. We feel sure he’ll be a true asset to both RISQ and all our clients, as we bid to broaden our global footprint.”

Leading RISQ’s commercial development, Borg-Barthet will be tasked with leading the expansion of RISQ’s new and existing industry services.

Borg-Barthet joins RISQ following a successful period of growth in which the company has added GVC Holdings, Betway and William Hill as new jackpot insurance clients.

Borg-Barthet commented on joining RISQ: “I’ve always based my business relationships on the ability to add value. Working with RISQ, I’ve not only found a string of products that complement the different sides of the gaming industry but also a strong, experienced team that are client-focused and eager to tailor their offering to make it work for the customer. The team at RISQ have solid relationships across the insurance world, cultivated after years of risk management and consultancy in the gambling space. They’re trusted and respected. I can’t back a better story than that.”
