PartyGaming CEO Jim Ryan Optimistic About PartyGaming's Prospects for 2009

On January 10th, 2009, the Chief Executive Officer for online gaming operator PartyGaming, Jim Ryan, gave an overview on his plans for the future during a recent interview. Canadian-born Jim Ryan took over the reins for PartyGaming in May 2008 from fellow countryman Mitch Garber, Garber is a highly capable online and technology executive with twenty-two years of experience including serving as the CEO for St. Minver Limited.

Ryan revealed that he was following a three-year plan that has been made to help PartyGaming return to its distinguish position in the online gaming market. Ryan said that they have been trying to achieve set quarterly profits but the gaming market has become so competitive that you have to set goals so that you know where you are going.

They are not slowing down in their goal of expanding their presence in major gaming markets and offering interesting new games but keeping themselves focused on the task at hand. The 46 year-old PartyGaming CEO said that he does not know whether online gaming will be allowed in the US under President Barack Obama but that he would do everything in his power to prepare the organization for that day.

Ryan said that there will only be 5 online poker operators of any importance in the next 3 years and that PartyGaming would be among those five. He said that their main job is to attract more players and expand their gaming offering aside from poker.

Ryan also talked about their integrated gaming platform which offers games like backgammon, which is fast becoming a well-loved game among their players. Ryan said that their gaming platform can also be considered a one-stop shop because players only need to open a single account and deposit once in order to start playing immediately.
