Vivian Imerman, a 49-year-old top businessman from London, has joined the Crystal Gaming family. Imerman will be the new chairman for the online casinos leader, and rumors say he might even purchase a ten percent share of the online casinos company.
Crystal Gaming operates numerous online casinos as well as m-gaming sites and is rumored to be planning a GBP 140 million IPO launch on the London AIM exchange. It is also rumored that the online casinos giant intends to make this move with Seymour Pierce as its advisers. With South African-born Imerman the company will surely get a large boost by utilizing his experience and expertise in European business.
Imerman is reported to be worth GBP 400 million. He is also the main shareholder for the well-known Scottish whisky group, Whyte and MacKay. The no-nonsense businessman had a successful career in foods before selling the Del Monte group in 1999 to Cirio, an Italian company, for GBP 380 million. Crystal Gaming stands to benefit greatly from this business guru, both in the operating and running of its online casinos and other gaming sites, as well as its potential listing in London. And if the online gambling sites are run more efficiently, online casinos members will be the happiest of all of the parties involved.
