London, 22nd April 2024 – The Conexus Group today announces the divestment of a majority stake in iGaming Academy to SiGMA Group, a leading events and media organisation focused on iGaming and emerging technology sectors. iGaming Academy will become a standalone entity within the SiGMA Group portfolio. The Conexus Group will retain an interest in iGaming Academy and the two organisations will continue to work closely together.

This strategic divestment allows the Conexus Group to further focus on its core Human Capital, Advisory and Managed Service offerings. The iGaming Academy and its vocational training will continue to play a pivotal role in Conexus Group’s Human Capital solutions.

“The Conexus Group will remain actively involved in the iGaming Academy and our clients will continue to receive the outstanding training they expect from this brand,” said Rob Dowling, CEO of The Conexus Group. “We are confident that this strategic investment by SIGMA will allow the iGaming Academy to expand and improve its service offering to better serve the evolving training needs of the iGaming industry.”

iGaming Academy will continue to work in its current organisational structure, with Jaime Debono as company CEO, working alongside his team in Malta.

“SiGMA Group has been a long-term partner of iGaming Academy, and this acquisition allows us to build on that strong foundation,” said Eman Pulis, Founder of SiGMA Group. “The acquisition comes at a perfect time for us. We've been working closely with iGaming Academy for ten years now. I love what Jaime and the Conexus Group have built and look forward to supporting this growth with new ideas.
