Francesco Borgosano – Kambi Group

Stockholm-listed betting software and platform provider Kambi Group Plc has strengthened its data, analytics and automation capabilities appointing Francesco Borgosano to the newly created role of Chief Analytics Officer (CAO).

Borgosano joins Kambi’s executive team from The Stars Group Inc, where he most recently served as Head of Sportsbook Solutions (2017-2018), heading up quantitative insights and analysis for the firm’s BetStars subsidiary.

As CAO, Borgosano will lead Kambi’s recently established ‘Analytics Department’, seeking to enhance/optimise group-wide analysis, cross-learning and data models for all Kambi stakeholders.

These areas of analytical expertise range from data products and quant models in trading and risk management, to insight generation for product development.

In addition to leading the Analytics organisation, as CAO Borgosano will form part of the executive management team, ensuring analytics and data has the opportunity to make the biggest impact for Kambi and its customers.

Borgosano will report into Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Erik Logdberg, and be based out of Kambi’s Stockholm office.  

Logdberg commented: “Data is transforming our industry all the way from UX to risk management and with that you have to quickly transform your business. With the skills and experience Francesco brings to the platform that the CAO position offers, we feel we are perfectly set up to make this change fast and successfully.”

Borgosano said:  “With its deep pool of talent and best-in-class Sportsbook platform, Kambi is a fantastic business, so I am naturally excited about having the opportunity to work with the team and to strengthen and guide its analytics strategy.

“This newly created Chief Analytics role, the first of its kind, shows the foresight and vision of the exec team, and displays an organisation which shares my passion for data. I’m therefore confident analytics will play a pivotal role in Kambi’s strategic development and future growth.”
