November 20, 2019 (Vancouver, Canada) – GeoComply, the global leader in compliance-grade geolocation solutions, is extremely pleased to announce that its founder and chairman, Anna Sainsbury, has been named as one of iGaming most influential women of 2019. The list, compiled by Clarion Gaming and published in iGaming Business, aims to showcase the industry’s most accomplished women and inspire others to progress their careers within the industry.
“This year’s list features women who have played key roles in transformations within their organisations, women who’ve been champions of diversity and women who’ve raised the profile of the entire sector itself,” said Stephen Carter, editorial director of iGaming Business.
Added Ewa Bakun, director of industry insight and engagement at Clarion Gaming and a member of the judging panel: “We have seen the topic of diversity and inclusion evolve over the last few years from a truly niche one to the mainstream and every major organisation in the gambling sector, which is still male- dominated if we look at the board levels, understands now that it’s as much a commercial imperative as it is a moral one.“
“The unprecedented market growth we have seen in our industry since the repeal of PASPA has opened the doors for innovation and change,” said Anna Sainsbury of GeoComply. “It is an honor to be recognized as a leading figure through that growth and also an honor to work with the many women at GeoComply, across all levels and functions, as we build on a culture of equality and diversity.”
About the List
The list was compiled from nominations received by a survey conducted on SurveyMonkey between July 22 and September 10. The survey was promoted to those working within gaming or related sectors.
The entries received were then assessed by a panel of judges chosen from across the industry. The judges were Ewa Bakun, director of industry insight and engagement at Clarion Gaming; Andrew Bulloss, partner at Odgers Berndtson; Kelly Kehn and Christina Thakor-Rankin, co-founders of All-in Diversity Project; Suzi Read, head of talent development at Kindred; Holly Straker, inclusion, engagement and events executive at Sky Betting and Gaming; and Helen Walton, founder and CCO of Gamevy and Gluck.
