Sherman will assume his new role at Bragg Gaming by July 1, several months after the brand’s former CEO resigned amid a strategic review of the business in November 2021. According to the Chairman of Bragg’s board, Paul Godfrey, the “extensive industry experience and a strong record of success, including many years of senior management leadership and accomplishments for a leading global iGaming operator,” makes Sherman “ideally suited to lead the company’s ongoing execution of our successful growth initiatives.”

Earlier this month, Bragg Gaming increased its portfolio after completing its acquisition of Spin Games in a deal worth $30m. This year the company has also entered into new jurisdictions like the newly-regulated Ontario market and the Bahamas.
