Arouh was promoted to the position having served as deputy chief legal officer and senior vice president at GAN since February of this year.
He replaces Todd McTavish, who is due to step down from the role tomorrow (1 September) after resigning due to personal reasons.
Prior to joining GAN, Arouh operated his own law firm where he represented a number of public companies in the internet gambling industry.
“This is an exciting opportunity to leverage my industry, commercial and transactional experience at a fast-growing company in a complex, regulated environment,” Arouh said.
“I look forward to continuing to help GAN grow and helping the GAN team deliver GAN’s proprietary digital platform to extend our customer’s casino brands by immersing our customers’ players in real money internet gambling, internet sports betting, and social casino gaming.”
GAN’s chief executive Dermot Smurfit added: “Michael’s knowledge of GAN, relevant legal and on-line gambling industry experience, energy and record of accomplishments, coupled with his proven leadership, make him the ideal candidate to manage our global legal strategies and activities, and lead our in-house and external legal teams.”
The appointment comes after GAN earlier this month reported a 316% year-on-year rise in revenue for the second quarter of its financial year.
