Peter Howitt

I am the founder of Rampart and have been involved in finance and technology since 2000 when I started my career at Reed Smith LLP in London. In 2012, I founded Ramparts European Law Firm in Gibraltar – Gibraltar is a world leading jurisdiction for the regulated online gambling sector and a growing EU finance centre. Previously I have worked at Reed Smith LLP (2000–2005); PartyGaming plc (2005–2007); and Transact Network (2010–2012). I have a passion for technology and arts and this inspired me to create an online social network for artists, writers and musicians (2008–2009).

I am also the CEO of the Gibraltar Betting and Gaming Association (GBGA), where I co–ordinate the industry on a wide range of issues including regulatory, political and public relations matters. I am the co–founder and Secretary of the Gibraltar E–Money Association (GEMA) (2012–present), which focuses on identifying and promoting the common interests of locally authorised international payment service providers (the prepaid and e–payments sector).

I am a member of Tech London Advocates and the European Crowdfunding Network. I play an active role in the Emerging Payments Association.

I am passionate about social justice and want to be involved in projects aimed at better economic, political and social inclusion for vulnerable and disadvantaged people.
