The Innovation Group recently announced that current Senior Vice President Brian Wyman has become a partner in the firm. Wyman joined The Innovation Group in 2016 as an associate, responsible for establishing a data science practice with an emphasis on marketing and operations support for gaming industry clients. During his tenure, these services have expanded into the cruise ship, sports, healthcare and investment industries, and led to the firm's recent launch of its Gameday Experience service for stadium and arena operators. Wyman oversees the firm's sports betting practice and established The Innovation Group's Las Vegas office, which he will continue to lead.

"Brian's commitment as a partner of The Innovation Group is the culmination of a multi-year effort by the company to supplement its business model with expertise in emerging technologies and operations to support the ongoing needs of our clients," said The Innovation Group President Michael Soll. "Thanks to Brian's leadership, we are now proficient in marketing analytics, database services, and in the online and sports betting spaces." 

Prior to joining The Innovation Group, Wyman spent more than 15 years transforming data into actionable intelligence, insights, and bottom-line results across multiple industries, including gaming, hospitality, finance and defense.

"I pride myself on helping clients develop creative ways to improve operations, strategy, and financial performance through modeling and analytics," said Wyman. "We blend the models and data with an understanding of their operations, incorporate industry best practices, and work with each client to create a custom action plan tailored specifically to their business."
