Im surprised there isn’t a thread on this already: https://about.draftkings.com/2018/02/26/draftkings-hires-sean-hurley-as-head-of-sportsbook/
“Boston, MA (February 26, 2018) – DraftKings, Inc. today announced Sean Hurley has been hired as the new Head of Sportsbook to help build, launch and drive the sports betting vertical at DraftKings. In this newly created role, Hurley will report to Chief Revenue Officer and co-founder, Matt Kalish.
“Sean brings a wealth of gaming experience to DraftKings and furthers our ability to be a leader in the sports betting market,” said Kalish.
Hurley will be based in DraftKings’ newly opened office in Hoboken, New Jersey. He will focus on preparing Sportsbook as a potential new line of business for DraftKings in anticipation of the pending Supreme Court decision in Christie v. National Collegiate Athletic Association.
Prior to joining DraftKings, Hurley gained extensive knowledge of the iGaming space with senior roles in both B2B and B2C companies. Most recently, Hurley led sales and commercial for Amelco, a sportsbook and trading platform supplier based in London.”
Not too long ago we couldn’t touch the words gambling and DFS together with a 10-foot pole. Fast forward to today and its their new line of business? Seems interesting, I guess Im impartial at the moment because this is all the info we have.
