The Malta Gaming Authority’s Board of Governors has chosen Dr. Carl Brincot as its Chief Executive Officer. The board has made that decision with an instant effect on the context of the gaming act’s article 6(2)(a). The selection process was highly competitive, and it started with calling for a mass application on 17th Dec last year.
Dr. Carl Brincot was a lawyer by profession, and he previously adorned the seat of the Chief Legal & Entertainment Officer of the Malta Gaming Authority. Following a long three years of training in the criminal law field, Carl joined the legal team of MGA. He has been a part of that legal team since that time, and it has been over six years, among which four years have been spent in creating part of the strategic direction of MGA and its other regulatory Committees.
Carl now sits on the Board of the Financial Intelligence Unit and has become a Chamber of Advocate member, the International Masters of Gaming Law, and the International Association of Gambling Regulators. He is also a regular speaker in all the local and international conferences relating to international regulatory issues and gaming.
Further Continuing the Good Work
Carl Brincat explained himself on getting appointed as a chief executive, saying that it was an honor for him to get chosen to lead the gaming authority at such a crucial time for the entire industry. He praised the authority for its effort to raise the standard of the regulatory and committed to walk down the same road and further elongate it.
He suggested that they should cultivate a more stable partnership with other stakeholders and regulators in order to achieve a regulatory set-up that accomplishes the authority’s goal to enforce and set out the regulations in a more transparent, effective, and proportionate manner.
MGA has also confirmed its appointment of the new chief executive earlier this year, mentioning that it is hoping the best for Carl and expects him to carry the value MGA has already earned on the market.
