Gaming Intelligence Hot 50
Head of PartyPoker and Cashcade
PartyPoker was an embarrassment. When GVC bought bwin.party it was ready to pull the plug but Tom Waters convinced CEO Kenny Alexander he had a plan. Since then, he has overseen six consecutive quarters of 30-something or often 40-something percentage point rises in net gaming revenue. Together with his colleagues he has reinvigorated the product and Party’s live events. Waters has the drive, vision and personality to bring his colleagues along with him on a journey that has some way left to run.
