Evan is a chartered accountant with significant gaming industry experience. The initial part of his career was at Price Waterhouse (now PWC) in the audit and corporate finance divisions where he concentrated on casinos and financial services (some would say that’s the same thing). Later he was both founder and/or CEO of a series of ventures focused on various segments of the online gambling sector, including founder and CEO of a gaming investment company listed on the London Stock Exchange's AIM market. Since then Evan has focused on private equity and venture capital and set up Velo Partners as a specialist games and gambling investor and advisor. He has portfolio investments in social gaming, real-money wagering, slots software development, Facebook advertising and land-based emerging-market gaming. He is based in London.
