Future Anthem was established to play a new tune in the global gambling industry. With talent at its heart and data in its veins, the team at Future Anthem aims to innovate and create with data science, helping the sector grow responsibly.
The gambling industry is a tremendous combination of technology, entertainment, risk, regulation, eCommerce, finance and social interaction. Data runs throughout. Our focus is game data.
In a competitive marketplace, using game data to optimise your games is key to engaging and retaining players responsibly.
Future Anthem’s vision is to connect human behaviour with data science to build a player centric universe that is enjoyable and sustainable.
Our mission is to create AI that enriches the gambling industry. We strive to place real-time behavioural data and sustainability at the heart of every action operators and studios take to improve the player experience.
Collaborating with both casino operators and game studios, we process billions of game transactions at scale to analyse and predict player and game behaviours.
After 15 years of leadership experience in the global gaming industry, I wanted to listen to games in a way that would improve gaming experiences for everyone. Hence Future Anthem was born - to create new tunes that help the industry grow responsibly. As you’ve probably guessed, music is a passion, along with my fitness, hair and family.
I've been leading the charge on data science within gaming for years, and I joined Future Anthem to deliver machine learning to the industry at a truly vast scale. Building teams is my passion, and I'm obsessive about enabling them to drive us forward, with cutting edge tech at their disposal. My anthems are techno, football and beer, mixed with a sample of poker.
I am a Data Scientist with a PhD in Machine Learning with both postdoctoral and commercial research experience. I have spent the last four years working with state-of-the-art cloud technology to solve complex big data problems such as building some of the first Responsible Gambling models. When not trying to innovate in the RG domain I am a keen footballer, snowboarder and Weiss beer enthusiast.
I have been at the forefront of B2B tech for 30+ years and have built and sold businesses to some of the world’s largest tech companies. I have a love for modern marketing, including marketing tech and brand. I am a failed DJ, average cyclist, frustrated poker player and a hopeful Arsenal fan.
I have worked and scaled businesses in more than 20 countries around the world including China, Brazil, the USA and most of Europe. I was a key member of the senior management team that took the Tesco owned data science consultancy dunnhumby from c.£5M profit in 2002 to c.£90M profit in 2014. Additionally, I spent two years working as Vice President of Data Services at Liberty Global, Europe’s leading cable company.
I am a renowned Marketing executive, who most recently served as SVP of Global Brand and Consumer Marketing for the NFL. I oversaw Marketing and Business Development for the DreamWorks Animation unit in Palo Alto, was Head of Consumer Marketing and Global Social Media at eBay, and led SoFi's Marketing efforts as its first marketing leader in 2012. I was also part of the original team at Twitter in 2008. I am also currently a Board Member of TOCA Football and NuArca Labs NFT and an investor.
I spent the last nine years at William Hill where I was responsible for the bookmaker’s sportsbook platform as Head of Product, and previously international product development for gaming and sports, working across multiple regulated markets, leading over 100 team members in three European locations. Today I am the CPO at Future Anthem tasked with building out our Sports offering both in the UK and the US.
I am a Chartered Accountant with over 15 years’ of experience in the gaming industry, across both operators and studios. I’ve gained valuable experience across numerous projects, from platform migrations to the merger of Ladbrokes and Coral. I am passionate about data, automation, and player behaviour so I am really excited about joining the incredible team at Future Anthem. I love all things music and travelling to anywhere I can ski or scuba dive.
I am genuinely passionate about people and culture and the benefits they can bring to organisations. I have over 15 years of experience across multiple sectors, and I’m CIPD qualified. I pride myself on my understanding of business needs and solution-focused approach, which has allowed me to build solid and robust teams and relationships that effectively and commercially harness the best in our people. I am excited to take Anthem to the next level in terms of people and culture. I have three children, and Anthem has allowed me the flexibility to juggle both home and work life. I love to read, and it’s never long before I’m studying for my next qualification.
