New German focused sports betting operator Wetten.com has confirmed the appointment of Jeff Tabone as its first ever Director of Sportsbook.
Tabone will join Wetten.com operations this June from European operator Betsson Group, where he served as Head of Sportsbook (2015-2017), as well as in other senior management positions within Betsson trading and sports betting operations.
Powered by Gaming Innovation Group (GIG) iGaming Cloud platform, German-language online sportsbook Wetten.com was launched this January.
Ahead of Germany adopting a national framework for online sports betting regulation, Wetten.com seeks to establish itself as a marquee brand for German betting consumers.
As Director of Sportsbook, Tabone will be charged with leading the new bookmaker’s betting product strategy, operational initiatives, and trading/risk teams.
Daniel Bradtke, Founder & CEO of Wetten.com, stated that his firm had found the right man to take its sportsbook forward: “Jeff’s extensive and collective grasp of both, the Sportsbook product and customer, will have a profound impact on Wetten.com. He will be an asset to the whole organisation as we look to define innovative Sportsbook user experiences.”
Tabone backed Bradtke positive comments: “I am honored to be joining very talented Wetten.com team and using my experience and Sportsbook expertise to help drive this young company to new heights.”
