“As the next milestone in these efforts, I am excited that Christian is joining the BetMakers leadership team as CEO of North America, given his vast leadership experience in the US gaming industry. North America is a critical market for our company with its potential for significant growth on the back of the widespread US sports betting expansion and the potential growth of fixed-odds wagering.”
