Brill will take the seat on the board vacated by William Zender, who resigned 1 July. She will serve until the next election of directors, which will take place at a meeting of shareholders.
Brill is a Canadian intellectual property lawyer and patent agent who worked with Bereskin & Parr LLP from 1998 to 2008, before becoming a private investor where she has been a shareholder of Galaxy for some time.
Brill’s time at Bereskin & Parr included all aspects of patent drafting and prosecution, intellectual property portfolio, as well as management strategy and competitive intelligence research.
The chairman of Galaxy’s board of directors, Mark Lipparelli, said that Brill would bring a positive contribution to the company.
“Meredith is a valuable addition to the Galaxy Board,” he said. “Her experience in intellectual property matters is directly relevant to Galaxy’s business model and, as a long-time shareholder, she is very familiar with the company’s opportunities and challenges. We look forward to her contributions.”
The news comes after Galaxy announced a new division last week focused on igaming growth and digital development.
“I have been a shareholder of Galaxy for several years, so I am an admirer of its business model and success to date,” said Brill.
“I am enthusiastic about the opportunity to get involved in the company’s strategy and operations and to bring my experience in IP-related matters to bear on its future activities.”
Galaxy returned to profit in 2021 following record igaming receipts.
