In his new role, McGough will assume responsibility for both developing and implementing the group’s overall investor relations programme, as well as communicating its vision and value to shareholders and the financial community.
McGough, who officially joined the group on 1 July, most recently served in an institutional sales role at Viridian Capital Advisors.
Prior to this, he led the North American corporate access team at Credit Suisse and also the sector specialist sales team at JP Morgan.
“The team, the culture and the market opportunity the company offers is unmatched,” McGough said. “I look forward to leveraging my background in capital markets and investor engagement to rapidly accelerate the investment community’s appreciation of the talent within Gambling.com Group and the growth opportunity in front of this organisation.”
Gambling.com Group chief executive Charles Gillespie added: “Pete brings a wealth of experience and a fantastic network from his decades of experience in the New York finance community.
“Having such a talented individual working inside the business, full-time and at the VP level will ensure we deliver a best-in-class investor relations programme.”
The appointment comes after Gambling.com Group last week also added Michael Quartieri to its board of directors. Quartieri will now work as a member of the audit committee and the nominating and governance committee.
