Nominees are selected by VIXIO's Editorial and Regulatory experts for this special award. They are made up of individuals who have operated within the global gambling sector for multiple years and whose input to the advancement of the culture of compliance and improvement of the regulatory structure has been outstanding.
When voting, our judges will be looking for a person who has consistently led the way in compliance across their career and the organisations they have worked for. This person could be a lawyer representing operators in the gambling industry, an individual from an operator who has promoted compliance positively, a regulator who has positively engaged with the industry, or a consultant who has proactively advised the sector throughout their career (or a mix of all of these!). They will be looking for evidence of a gregarious individual with real character, and anecdotal references will be considered to support this.
