Harry Lang, the popular Marketing Director at Buzz Bingo recently announced his departure from the UK bingo company and the gambling industry as a whole.
Announced on Harry's LinkedIn page, the gambling industry veteran said “after half a career, I’ve folded my last hand in the gambling industry”.
In the lengthy social media post, Harry shared many of his memories of his time in the gambling industry that included stints at Pinnacle Sports, Mecca Bingo, bwin party, Genting, and WMS Gaming. He also entertained with memories of far-flung places including Chicago, Macau, Gibraltor, Hong Kong, and Curacao.
Harry said: “And those conferences… ICE, SBC, Power 50, concentric circles of The Dam. The legendary Barcelona. They’re more sanitised these days. And less provocative. A good thing, progress-wise.” Having attended many of these conferences myself and now happily married, this author can only agree.
Lang, a former British Universities Ski & Snowboard Club (BUSC) Rep, also founded Brand Architects in 2017. The brand and marketing consultancy's client portfolio included Genting Bet, Leon House/ AnonyMind, PandaScore, Rightlander, Puntt.gg, and funnily enough, Buzz Bingo.
Harry Lang, a 20-year marketing veteran recently published a book Brands, Bandwagons & Bullshit which is aimed at helping young marketers and flummoxed professionals alike to understand how marketing and related disciplines work.

With the gambling industry behind him (for now), Harry has taken up the position of CMO (Chief Marketing Officer) at Stint – a proprietary App that connects hospitality and leisure businesses with students who want short, flexible working shifts.
From a BingoDaily point of view, we always enjoyed working with Harry, whose enthusiasm was and willingness, was greatly appreciated by us and others.
