Ian Levy attributed his stellar career in business to his desire to continually think outside the box. “I don’t strive to fit in. I am constantly seeking new frontiers and new challenges, and to succeed in business or any endeavour, one must always consistently push at the boundaries. I’m always swimming upstream, and it has paid off, not just for myself and my enterprises but for Jamaica and the gaming industry,” said Levy.
