DAZN BET has ensured that it picks up the greatest talents in the industry as the sports entertainment business has added Matt Hartington as the director of legal. Hartington is an ex-exec at Flutter Entertainment, a company that is dedicated to building a sustainable future. He worked as the head of legal for Ireland and the UK since the summer of 2021.
Hartington Joins a Team of Experts At DAZN BET
Hartington is not the first high-end industry expert to join the DAZN BET team. Shane McLaughlin, ex- Betdaq MD, was also appointed by the company recently. Additionally, Simon Gatenby, the former technology director at Entain, was also hired by DAZN BET.
McLaughlin will be working at the company as Ontario and UK MD, while Gatenby was appointed as a chief marketing officer.
While speaking about the new appointment, Hartington noted that even though ending his chapter at Sky Betting and Gaming is “bittersweet,” he’s very excited about his future as director of legal at DAZN BET. He thanked everyone at Sky Betting and Gaming for their contributions and concluded by saying that he “can’t wait to get going” at DAZN BET.
Before joining DAZN BET, Hartington spent five years at SBG. He joined the company as a legal counsel back in 2016. DAZN BET will be led by Mark Kemp, joined from Boyle. Kemp was named as the company’s new CEO.
Most recently, DAZN BET expanded its sportsbook team with Gemma Burge, who will be working as the new safer gambling head. Even though Burge is relatively new to the gambling sector, she is a risk manager with almost 20 years of cross-industry working experience.
