11/22/2012 : BETWAY APPOINTS EX-SPORTINGBET EXEC
 
Ex-Sportingbet managing director to head Guernsey operation
 
European online betting firm The Betway Group has announced the appointment of Bob Dutnall as executive director of its Guernsey branch.
 
Dutnall joins Betway from online sports betting firm Sportingbet where he served as managing director of its European operation.  Prior to this, he held various chief financial officer appointments in both the consumer and industrial markets.
 
“I am joining a fast-moving highly entrepreneurial company that is in an ideal position to expand rapidly as increased regulation in European markets drives consolidation across the industry,” said Dutnall.
 
Richard Akitt, The Betway Group chief executive officer added: “Bob’s experience across a wide range of consumer and industrial companies, and his online gaming experience at Sportingbet will help us to maximise benefits from a consolidating industry, as companies across our industry merge, or co-operate with land based operators, and seek partnerships in social gaming.”
