The Board of Directors has appointed Matevž Mazij, Chairman of the Board and the visionary founder of Oryx Gaming, as the new Chief Executive Officer with immediate effect.
This significant shift in leadership is poised to shape the future trajectory of the company and align its direction with the best interests of stakeholders.
Founder and Visionary
Matevž Mazij steps into the role of CEO with an impressive track record and profound industry experience. As the largest shareholder and the original architect of Oryx Gaming, the Company’s foundational PAM, aggregation, and RGS gaming technology platforms, his legacy speaks volumes. The acquisition of Oryx Gaming by Bragg in 2018 marked a significant milestone, and today, Mr. Mazij’s role as CEO marks a new chapter of innovation and growth.
This change in leadership comes as a result of meticulous evaluation by the Board, reflecting a strategic decision to ensure the optimal alignment of the company’s interests with those of its stakeholders. Yaniv Sherman, who previously held the role of CEO, has stepped down, creating an opportunity for fresh perspectives and new dynamics to drive Bragg Gaming Group forward.
Continuity and Growth
Holly Gagnon, Lead Independent Director of the Board, expressed gratitude for Yaniv Sherman’s leadership and contributions, stating “On behalf of the Board of Directors and the entire Bragg team, I would like to thank Yaniv for his leadership, commitment, and contributions to the Company.
“The Board remains focused on supporting the Company’s senior management team as they continue to execute on initiatives that drive profitable growth and the creation of new, sustainable shareholder value. We are confident that as the founder and visionary of Oryx Gaming, the combination of Matevž’ signficant industry experience and deep knowledge of Bragg with the Company’s experienced senior leadership team favorably positions Bragg to continue successfully executing on our key strategic objectives and serve our valued customers and partners with excellence.”
Matevž Mazij shared his enthusiasm for the new role, stating “Following several years of serving on the Board, I am excited to return to an operational role to lead the Company towards continued top-line and cash flow growth.
“Bragg possesses many opportunities to further grow our scale of operations across North America, Europe and evolving global regulated iGaming markets. I look forward to working with senior management and all of our team members to bring fresh perspectives that can amplify our ability to continue our successful execution of the growth strategies that we established following the acquisitions of Wild Streak Gaming and Spin Games in 2021 and 2022, respectively.”
As Matevž Mazij takes the reins, Bragg Gaming Group embarks on a new journey under visionary leadership. With innovation, growth, and customer excellence at the forefront, the company is poised to reshape the landscape of B2B gaming technology and content provision.
