BGO Entertainment, the multi-brand gaming firm launched in 2012, has appointed Mark Quayle as chief executive officer as the group looks to expand its operation to Gibraltar.
Formerly head of UK operations for the Kindred Group, Quayle brings over 17 years of
industry experience having joined Betdirect back in 2003 before it was acquired by 32Red in 2006.
Alex Holt, co-founder of BGO, said: “It’s great to have Mark on board and we’re looking
forward to working with him as we take the business to the next level.
“Mark was an integral and valued part of the management team who successfully grew the 32Red brand and we’re confident his experience with such a large casino operator will be a huge asset to BGO.”
DraftKings has named Jennifer Aguiar its new chief compliance officer, an executive level position that reports directly to the company’s co-founder, CEO and chairman Jason Robins.
Replacing Tim Dent as CCO, Aguiar will be responsible for overseeing corporate compliance and enterprise risk management. She will ensure DraftKings’ compliance with all US and international licensing requirements related to daily fantasy sports, sports betting and igaming, among other responsibilities.
“Jennifer has been an instrumental asset to our organisation, successfully navigating the company through the emergence of daily fantasy sports and the state-by-state licensing and regulatory process,” noted Robins.
“The compliance framework developed by Jennifer has been a critical element in positioning DraftKings to enter new states quickly following the legalisation of sports betting and igaming. She has created a culture of compliance at DraftKings and will continue to play a pivotal role in the company’s growth.”
