Gaming Laboratories International (GLI) has again expanded its Client Solutions and Client Services teams with the additions of Steve May as Client Solutions Executive and Samuel Grunther as Account Executive.
May has an extensive background in pari-mutuel, racing, and compliance, and that wide-ranging experience will provide value to GLI’s clients. Before joining GLI, he was Executive Director of the Minnesota Racing Commission. He has also served as Director of Pari-Mutuel Wagering and Compliance for the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission, and Vice President/Business Manager for the Association of Racing Commissioners International. He is accredited to officiate thoroughbred, quarter horse, and harness races throughout North America.
Senior Vice President of Government Affairs and General Counsel Kevin Mullally said, “Steve May has been a successful problem-solver throughout his career, and we are fortunate to have him join the GLI team. He is known for playing an essential role in developing a regulatory framework for historical horse racing. However, his technical acumen and knowledge of developing and implementing compliance programs will greatly benefit a wide array of our clients. He has earned the trust of both regulators and the industry, and we are grateful to have him on the team.”
Grunther has a sound history in the iGaming and sports betting industry, and in his new role at GLI, he will provide ongoing commercial and client support to both suppliers and operators in the space. Previous roles included Conduet, where he served as Client Relations and Conversations Specialist; FanDuel, as Customer Operations Agent; Guest Relations Operator at Madison Square Garden; and Ticket Operations Associate for the New York Yankees.
Vice President of Client Services Salim L. Adatia said: “Sam’s strong knowledge and understanding of the sports media landscape, coupled with his experience collaborating cross-departmentally within companies spanning iGaming and sports betting, will allow him to hit the ground running and immediately contribute to satisfying the needs of our quickly growing list of valued clientele, thereby illuminating their path for their success and growth.”
