Richard Thorp departs as FSB commercial lead

Richard Thorp long-term commercial lead for sports betting platform and systems provider FSB Tech, has confirmed through a Linkedin update, his departure from the company as Business Development Director.

A seasoned executive in industry commercial development and marketing, Thorp has served as FSB’s commercial lead since 2014, joining the firm’s founding enterprise team from the Racing Post.

Charged with leading FSB’s commercial strategy and planning, Thorp has been a key stakeholder helping the technology firm securing key sportsbook client wins with Toals NI, Fitzdares and Jenningsbet.

It has been a wonderful experience, helping to grow the company from having a single client when I joined, to signing up over thirty more operators across the globe who are using the platform today (with more announcements to come)” Thorp comments through Linkedin

“I have huge admiration for the management team of David McDowell and Sam Lawrence and for the incredible in-depth trading knowledge of Mark Wilson and I look forward to working with them again in the future. I’d like to wish everyone I have encountered during my time at FSB, whether colleagues, clients or providers, all the very best. It has been a blast!”
