Gavin has worked in recruitment for over 20 years, with over 10 of that with CNA. His success as a head hunter and executive search professional has led to over a thousand placements at Senior Levels (Salary packages from GBP50,000 to GBP750,000) in the top 500 FTSE/Nasdaq Blue Chip Corporations, Mid Tier and SME’s across the globe.

Gavin has expert insight into the global iGaming & Betting sector and is known as 'The Betting Headhunter'. He is also a subject expert on open innovation & intellectual property rights globally with a special interest in commercialisation of innovation and intellectual property rights.

According to the UK Intellectual Property Office, 96% of companies do not know the vale of their IP and only 4% have an IP Policy!

In work commissioned by the UK Intellectual Property Office (IPO), Professors Athreye and Arora (Duke University, USA) found that firms which invest in intellectual property rights increased net profits by 30 – 62%, leading to 18% more investment in research and development.

Don't miss out on protecting and leveraging your IP assets. Gavin is in touch with the best in the sector (not just IP professionals on the job market).
