#15: Jim Ryan
In what is sure to be his final appearance on any such list, CAP would like to tip its hat to bwin.party Co-CEO Jim Ryan. Ryan was instrumental in leading the new company born from a merger of Party Gaming and bwin Entertainment into the future which has included a partnership with Zynga in the UK market.
Weeks ago, Ryan announced he is stepping down from bwin.party in order to spend more time with his family.
Ryan’s final day at bwin.party will be on January 15th. Taking over sole leadership of the company will be the man Ryan shared the title of CEO with, Norbert Teufelberger.
