Sportech has announced that Rich Roberts, President of Digital and US Corporate Affairs, has stepped down from the PLC Board. He had been a Member of the Board of Directors since December 2013.
Roberts’ resignation comes after a reorganisation of responsibilities for Sportech in North America, following the company’s withdrawal from business obligations with Draft Day Daily Fantasy Sports. However, he will continue to work for Sportech until the end of August to ensure a successful transition.
Andrew Gaughan will continue to run Sportech Racing and Digital, whilst Ted Taylor, Managing Director of Sportech Venues in Connecticut, will assume responsibility for online business in the state.
Ian Penrose, Chief Executive of Sportech, said: “Rich has been an important member of the executive team, most notably during our successful digital activities in New Jersey last year. I would like to personally thank him for his contribution to the Company, and we wish him well for the future.”
Rich Roberts added: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Sportech and am proud of the success we have had during that period with some key digital initiatives.”
Sportech have been in partnership with DraftDay Gaming Group, a subsidiary for Viggle Inc, since October 2015, providing a white-label daily fantasy sports platform.
