Gambling.com has confirmed the appointment of former Viridian Capital Advisors sales lead Peter McGough as its VP of Investor Relations.
Boasting over 25 years of sell-side experience, McGough will be tasked with ‘developing and implementing the overall investor relations strategy’ and communicating key corporate messages to the group’s shareholders and wider financial community.
At Viridian Capital Advisors, McGough served in an Institutional Sales role and introduced private equity funds, outside investors and high net worth individuals to clients in the tech and healthcare industries.
“Pete brings a wealth of experience and a fantastic network from his decades of experience in the New York finance community,” commented Charles Gillespie, Chief Executive Officer of Gambling.com Group. “Having such a talented individual working inside the business, full-time and at the VP level will ensure we deliver a best-in-class investor relations program.”
Elsewhere in his career, McGough has spent time at Credit Suisse, where he led the North American corporate access team, and banking giant JP Morgan, where he was a part of the specialist sales team.
Specializing in tech, he has experience in partnering and advising on investor relations strategies with corporate entities. It comes after achieving a Bachelor of Business Administration from Pace University’s Lubin School of Business and a Master of Business Administration with an emphasis in Banking, Corporate, Finance and Securities Law from Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business.
Talking about his new role at Gambling.com, McGough added: “I am excited to be joining the team at Gambling.com Group.
“The team, the culture and the market opportunity the company offers are unmatched. I look forward to leveraging my background in capital markets and investor engagement to rapidly accelerate the investment community’s appreciation of the talent within Gambling.com Group and the growth opportunity in front of this organization.”
McGough’s arrival follows the arrival of Michael Quartieri to the Gambling.com board of directors as the group aims to consolidate its senior leadership ranks.
