Mittman will also be responsible for the network of B2B partnerships across North America, including with the World Series of Poker as it looks to expand into new territories such as Michigan. 

888 CEO Izai Pazner commented: “We are delighted to announce the appointment of Howard as our new President 888 US. This key appointment comes at a hugely exciting point in our long-term growth strategy in the US online betting market, as we look forward to launching SI Sportsbook in multiple states in the coming months and years. 

“Howard has an exceptional track record at some of the world's best-known media brands, brings a huge amount of knowledge of the US digital landscape, has exceptionally strong relationships across the world of sports and media, and was the outstanding candidate after a thorough search.”
