EPIC Risk Management, the leading independent gambling harm minimisation consultancy, has appointed Martin Bland as Director of Business Development.
Martin joins EPIC having amassed vast experience in the commercial and partnerships sector, working eighteen years in the sports data and technology market. His role will be to help EPIC expand their work to prevent gambling from harming people and organisations by working closely with EPIC’s existing clients to ensure service excellence and will proactively develop its client base as part of the organisation’s growth strategy.
With his sales expertise, extensive regional and international business network and a true collaborative mindset, Martin is well positioned to support EPIC Risk Management’s growth and longer-term business strategy here in the UK, US and globally. In his role, Martin will be pro-actively developing relationships with key industry stakeholders, as well as maintaining EPIC’s exceptional track record of customer experience success.
“I’m thrilled to be joining such a progressive company who are trying to pioneer this space of gambling harm minimisation. What’s been clear to me throughout the recruitment process and my short time here, is that EPIC is hugely passionate about its purpose. Ultimately, this organisation is about helping people and the more organisations we can work with provides the opportunity to help more people the better,” Martin Bland said.
“My role here is about growth. Yes, organically the business will commercially grow but ultimately, the more companies we work with, the more people we interact with, the more people we help. So, that’s a massive goal of mine here at EPIC and I’m excited to get started,” he added.
“Such a senior appointment reflects our ongoing commitment to delivering service excellence to our existing clients and in continuing the significant growth we have seen at EPIC Risk Management.
