GARY GREEN GAMING™ is a brand licensing and private equity investment holding company specializing in casino gaming and its attendant businesses.Founded by pioneer gaming attorney Buddy J. Levy(our President & CEO) and by casino-industry celebrity Gary Green™, the company leverages decades of “insider” experience and profit-generating expertise in the hospitality / casino world.We provide high-asset pathways for gaming investment that remove the complex barriers-to-entry normally associated with the sector. We mitigate risks by spreading across a portfolio of independent high-investor-value companies and verticals.The cornerstone of our business and investment paradigm revolves around the leveraging and licensing the brand. Gary Green’s network television show, his newest book (shipping as a New York Times best-seller), and his continual speaking engagements have created an extraordinarily-increasing value of our already iconic casino-industry brand and thus, a profit-machine for investors.Our business model (and the investment assets) focus on three areas: (1) Assets Under Management (casino-hotel-resorts owned and operated by our company, along with casino-related assets including slot machines, entertainment, services, and manufactured products); (2) Fee-paying Assets Under Management(commercial & Indian casinos, slot machine companies, managed, operated, or consulted to for a variety of fees); and (3) Brand Licensing(licensing our celebrity brand (in the Donald Trump model), supported by Gary’s national network television series, books, & speaking engagements).
We founded Gary Green Gaming™ as both a licensing entity for one of America’s most impressive casino industry brands, and as an outgrowth of my specialized law practice combining with Gary’s The Gaming Group consultancy.Our synergistic practices have a combined ¾ of a century of high-profile successes and undisputed revenue generation, sometimes at unheard-of multiples. It was only natural that we become a team. It also was easy to see the need for an alternative investment vehicle specifically tailored to casino gaming industry assets, including commercial casinos, Native American Indian casinos, slot machine manufacturing and distribution companies, interactive / on-line gaming, and software / technology systems.The investment complexities of navigating that world also call for an investing operational company with significant expertise in all aspects of the gaming industry. We have created a company with a broad base of expertises including: business analytics & project vetting including risk intelligence; project development; organizational, financial & operational performance from conceptualization through turnkey; truly legendary marketing excellence; navigating the regulatory, legal, and legislative labyrinth; game evaluation and placement; introductions to Tribal and operational decision makers; and much more.Grounded in the ISO 10668 and independent brand-valuation long-term proposition of leveraging, licensing, and exploitation of our brand in the gaming industry and beyond, we have created a quantifiable, measurable, added-value proposition to the business modelArm-and-arm, we have assembled a team of top industry leaders and multi-dimensional experts in cross-industries to assure continuation of our performance record and over-the-top metrics.Buddy J. Levy, CEO
