Here, Aaron was introduced to iGaming and he was part of a team that developed a full front-end for a German bookmaker that was eager to transition their business online.

The next 17 years saw Aaron moving up in the industry with dedication and diligence while enhancing his expertise in the different positions. His impressive CV includes being a Developer at Methode Electronics where he worked his way up to Head of Information systems and gained valuable knowledge in Data Warehousing/business Intelligence Fields.

His vision is one of a Data Platform capable of delivering the right data, at the right time, in the right format with perfect quality.

“We know what operators need to successfully run their businesses. Unfortunately, many businesses limit themselves by focusing too much on Descriptive Analytics, that istraditional revenue and customer activity reports that answer the question; what happened?” Says Aaron.

“The power of data is most evident when you are able to forecast the future (Predictive Analysis) or even better being able to change it in a positive way (Perspective Analytics). This is what we are aiming for” he adds  ” “It only took a couple of meetings with Robin (Group CEO), Ben (MD for iGC) and Mike (Group CTO) before I was convinced that iGC was where I wanted to work next.” He smiles and adds “I am really impressed with the talent, passion and dedication of the people working here and how fast this company has grown in such a short time.”
