Blum Appointed W.p.t. General Manager Europe

By Brian Cullingworth, Last updated Aug 8, 2014

Key role for marketing and operations specialist

It hasn't taken long – just three years since joining the company in 2011 – for marketing and operations specialist Hermance Blum to rise to the senior echelons of management at World Poker Tour, where she has just been appointed General Manager for Europe.
Blum (31) entered the poker industry on the PR side when she worked with Pokerstars back in 2008, graduating to PartyPoker two years later in a marketing role, and moving to WPT in a marketing and operational position a year after that.
Respected for her energy and attention to customer needs and detail, her new responsibilities at WPT include all marketing, operational, and commercial aspects of WPT in Europe.

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
