Scientific Games Corporation has added to the senior management team of SG Digital together with the appointment of Nikos Konstakis as its new VP sportsbook product. Konstakis is going to be responsible for overseeing OpenBet’s product development roadmap and bringing and improving its own sportsbook proposition for its customers after the Supreme Court’s overturning of the Professional and Amateur Sports Betting Act. He was previously VP trading in OpenBet and spent 16 years in Intralot, an Athens-based gaming firm, with his final position being group manager of gambling.
“Appointing Nikos to the function of VP sportsbook product is an important step in our approach towards productization and developing the next generation of this OpenBet portfolio,” said Keith O’Loughlin, SVP sportsbook and platforms in SG Digital. “His knowledge of the sports gambling industry is a valuable asset for all, and he is already playing a key part in our preparations for entry to the U.S. regulated marketplace with a significantly enhanced proposal. ”
“I’m thrilled to have begun my new job with SG Digital in an extremely exciting period for your organization and our industry,” said Konstakis. “We’ve got a strong customer base, and that I look forward to working closely alongside our partners, bringing them value with our world class OpenBet sportsbook, as well as introducing innovative product enhancements to choose the platform to the next level. ”
