Racing content and data provider SIS (Sports Information Services), has named Richard Brankley as its new Head of Greyhound Operations.
Brankley joins SIS senior management from Ladbrokes, following a 19-year tenure with the FTSE UK betting group leading its in-stadia/on-course operations and betting services at the greyhound tracks of Crayford and Monmore Green.
The experienced industry professionals will work alongside SIS Greyhound Operations Manager Gordon Bissett to manage the overall performance across all of SIS’ tracks, ensuring the service continues to meet the demands of its operator partners.
Paul Witten, Product Director at SIS, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome Richard to the SIS team. He has significant knowledge of the greyhound industry and he will play a key role as we look to enhance our overall service even further.
“As a provider of 24/7 live betting coverage, it’s imperative the content we offer is of a high standard and with Richard joining the team we are in a solid position to ensure our tracks operate at the best possible standard.
The appointment of Brankley follows the successful launch of SIS new greyhound services at the beginning of 2018, with SIS securing a further 2,800 races taking the total number of live races broadcasts to over 30,000.
Richard Brankley said: “I’m delighted to have joined SIS and I am extremely excited to start this new chapter of my career.
“SIS is renowned as a leading supplier of live racing content to the betting industry, and I’m looking forward to being involved in what is already a successful greyhound operation and to help further enhance it.”
