OpenBet Hires Two Experienced Professionals to Its Management Team

Sportsbook technology, content, and services provider OpenBet has reinforced its senior management team by hiring two experienced professionals – Florian Diederichsen and Jessica Feil.

OpenBet Acquires Two Experienced Professionals

Diederichsen will take the role of a chief technology officer and Feil will serve as OpenBet’s vice president of regulatory affairs and compliance.

Both people have vast experience in their respective positions. Diederichsen has previously served as the CTO for the British sports media company DAZN group for three years. Before that, he was the CTO for the sports data and analytics company Perform for four years. Diederichsen will carry his experience on to his new position in OpenBet and will help to elevate the company’s products and make its sports betting offerings more appealing to bettors. 

Feil, on the other hand, has held various leadership positions in several notable law firms. Since 2016 she was an associate of Iffrah law for almost four years before moving on to the American Gaming Association in 2019. There she began as a senior director of government relations before rising to a vice president of government relations and gaming policy counsel. With her deep understanding of the law, Feil will help OpenBet remain compliant with the local rules of the markets where it operates.

Diederichsen and Feil Look Forward to Working with OpenBet

Both of the newly-hired professionals shared their thoughts on their new positions. For Diederichsen, joining OpenBet is a great opportunity and he said that he is excited by what’s to come. He pointed that OpenBet’s management team is ambitious – a quality that inspires him to work harder. He said:

“I’m ready to raise my game to implement the vision required to take sports betting to a new level. Development work is already underway behind the scenes that will revolutionize the future of sports betting entertainment and I cannot wait to share our innovative concepts with the marketplace.”

Feil said that she is glad to work with OpenBet and admires its determination to target the global market with its quality sports betting content. She is excited to demonstrate her knowledge within the legislation field and is looking forward to sharing her expertise with the company. 

“Compliance and regulatory affairs are incredibly important aspects of sports betting and OpenBet continues to set the standard of delivering the safest and most reliable experiences for players to enjoy cutting-edge entertainment.”

Jordan Levin, the chief executive of OpenBet, welcomed the new employees. He said that their acquisition will “change the game” for the company as he is sure that their valuable skill will work miracles for OpenBet. Furthermore, Levin reminded that the acquisition of such elites attests to OpenBet’s orientation towards the future and its drive for “hyper-differentiation.”

As a part of its differentiation efforts, OpenBet recently extended its partnership with the Irish betting company Flutter Entertainment.
