Prior to the GSC he was a Detective Constable with the Isle of Man Constabulary where he specialised as an Investigator in the Financial Crime Unit. His primary role in the e-Gaming team is to assist with licence applications, and the ongoing regulatory requirements of licensed companies. Paul is a member of the International Compliance Association, having qualified with the International Diploma in Anti-Money Laundering.
Commented Barry Smith, Equiom’s Legal Director who has been responsible for several successful e-Gaming license applications: ‘The Isle of Man has seen significant growth in e-Gaming which has produced direct revenue and employment across a number of job specifications. As a corporate service provider, with extensive experience in the e-Gaming sector, we are involved in the licensing application process and co-ordinate and implement bespoke tax planning structures. In the last three months alone we have been responsible for the successful applications of two new e-Gaming companies which will bring additional revenue and employment to the Island.’
Aidan Davin Equiom’s Client Services Director added: ‘The growth in the Isle of Man e-Gaming sector, and our increasing involvement, has resulted in the requirement for Equiom to form a dedicated team to service this important part of the Island’s economy. Kerry’s and Paul’s appointments bring a wealth of experience to the team and will ensure that we continue to be the market leader in the provision of corporate services from the Isle of Man to the e-Gaming business.’
