I am passionate about building great products that fundamentally enhance consumer experiences. With the launch of BetfairCasino.com in New Jersey, the new HD upgrades at TVG, and a record-breaking day during the Kentucky Derby, Betfair US has great momentum, and is well positioned to be a market leader. Together with the Betfair team, I’m looking forward to delivering the future of online gaming.”
