Howe began her business career in 1994 as a Business Analyst for the IT Services and IT Consulting company Accenture. She left Accenture in 1997, when she started her MBA at Wharton School. After graduating in 1999, Howe became a Partner at McKinsey & Company, a Business Consulting and Services firm. In 2014, she became Chief Strategy Officer of Live Nation Entertainment. Less than a year later, she was appointed the role of COO of Live Nation’s subsidiary, Ticketmaster North America. In 2019, she became Ticketmaster’s President and COO. In February 2021, FanDuel chose Howe as its Chief Executive Officer.
With Howe as CEO, FanDuel launched FanDuel TV, a 24/7 sports channel. FanDuel has also launched state-specific betting apps with promo codes offering bonuses to help increase the apps’ popularity. Howe has also helped utilise Flutter Entertainment’s experience in online entertainment with the hopes of boosting the brand’s online casino offerings.
