Former Nektan Executive Joins Green Jade Games in Gibraltar

By Simon Wright, Last updated Jul 1, 2023

The casino game studio Green Jade Games, of which we at Casinomeister interviewed earlier this year in June, have taken the strategic step of a key hire in Gibraltar – Brian Walton as Commercial Manager.  With some recent new partners in Gibraltar in mind and with a view on the future, Walton was a natural fit for the business.

Walton joins Green Jade from Jumpman Gaming where he was International Network Manager, assisting and supporting the business as it entered new territories and also working closely with its white label partners in these regions.

This included advising on marketing and advertising, and ensuring all activity was undertaken in full compliance with the rules and requirements laid out by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission. Walton has also held roles at Nektan including Head of Client Relations.

As Green Jade’s Commercial Manager, he will be responsible for supporting the developer’s operator partners to ensure both parties maximise their relationship and continue to drive growth. This includes leveraging Green Jade’s cutting-edge gamification products and thrilling games.

Mark Taffler, Chief Commercial Officer at Green Jade Games, said: “Brian is a great hire and a natural fit for the Green Jade team. He is experienced, skilled and incredibly passionate about the games and products that we design and develop.”

“We were impressed with his knowledge, desire and humane qualities, which we value hugely as a business.  He will be pivotal in helping us to achieve our industry changing proposition around Arcade and Skill content.  2022 will be a very very interesting year.”

“This will prove invaluable when it comes to working with our operator partners and helping them to maximise the full potential of our slots, arcade games and gamification features and tools. I look forward to working with Brian as we continue to grow the business and achieve our goals.”

Brian Walton, Commercial Manager at Green Jade Games, said: “This is a fabulous move for me as not only does it give me further scope to continue to enhance my skills and learnings, it also allows me to maintain my B2B abilities and ethos.”

“My personal goal for the role is to ensure that our partners leverage everything that Green Jade can offer such as amazing game content, including our unique and visually stunning arcade games, help them improve gamification plus maximise our awesome homepage content ability.”

“This allows any casino to display our content seamlessly, not only providing a striking and engaging look but also providing the ease and simplicity that players are looking for. I am thrilled to be joining the team and look forward to helping take the business to the next level.”
