Scott Applauded CEO Greenblatt’s Leadership Skills

Scott thanked a few of the people whom he worked beside. He said that there are way too many whom he enjoyed working with to mention all of them.

Scott singled out Adam Greenblatt as one of the best colleagues he has ever had and said that he remembers how Greenblatt acquired bookmaker.com.au, a small Australian business that eventually became Ladbrokes and Neds.

The departing VP had worked directly under Greenblatt for the last three and a half years and was impressed by the latter man’s leadership skills. Scott lauded the CEO as a leader that has no par “in any category anywhere on the globe.”

Thanks to Adam and the guidance of the executive team, BetMGM continues to make progress. Scott shared that he is excited to continue watching this growth from afar.

Other News Concerning the Two Businesses

Speaking of BetMGM, the company’s North American business was just honored with the RG Check accreditation from the Responsible Gambling Council. This is one of the most extensive and strict responsible gambling accreditation programs, attesting to BetMGM’s commitment to protecting its players from harm.

Entain, on the other hand, just agreed to provide Gordon Moody’s Alumni Project with funding. Through its non-profit arm, the Entain Foundation, the gambling company will support the treatment of gambling disorders in the United Kingdom.

The Alumni Project will see Gordon Moody leverage former addicts and people who recently completed treatment to help others overcome their problem gambling.

Around the same time, New Zealand’s single racing and sports betting agency, TAB NZ, picked Entain for a new 25-year strategic racing-oriented partnership. As announced, Entain will help TAB NZ “deliver its wagering and broadcast functions.”
