A graduate of Cornell University with an MBA from Wharton Business School, Howe was appointed Interim CEO in July. She joined the company in February 2021 as President with responsibility for leading the group’s core commercial functions across its Sportsbook, Casino, Racing and Daily Fantasy businesses.

“I am delighted to confirm the appointment of Amy as our new US CEO,” said Flutter CEO Peter Jackson. “Since joining the business at the start of this year she has done an excellent job of leading our commercial functions and ensuring that we execute well at this critical phase of growth for our business. 

“The expansion of the US market represents the single most exciting opportunity for Flutter today. Amy’s track record of leadership and experience in scaling a digital business will be invaluable as we look to grow our leadership position there.”

Prior to joining FanDuel, Howe served as Global Chief Operating Officer of Ticketmaster, leading the transformation and modernisation of the group’s ticketing platform. And before that, she worked as a Partner at McKinsey & Company, advising clients in the Media & Entertainment, Retail, and Consumer Goods sectors on areas such as growth strategy and commercial and operational excellence.

Howe commented: “I am very pleased to be appointed the CEO of FanDuel at such an exciting time. Since joining the business, I have been very impressed by the quality of our team and the strategic advantages we enjoy in terms of brand reach, product quality and the broad expertise we leverage from being part of the wider Flutter Group. 

“That said, we must avoid complacency and remain focussed on executing on our long-term strategy to build the embedded value of the business. I look forward to working with Peter and the wider team to drive FanDuel’s continued success.”
