FanDuel Group has appointed David Jennings as its new CFO.

He joins the group from parent company Flutter Plc, where he served as Group Director of Investor Relations and FP&A (​​Financial Planning and Analysis). Jennings also led the Corporate Development team at Flutter for a time.

In his new role at FanDuel, Jennings will be responsible for oversight of all of its finance functions, including FP&A, strategy, accounting, procurement, tax and treasury in support of the group’s Sportsbook, Casino, Racing, Daily Fantasy, Retail and corporate functions.

Before joining Flutter, Jennings worked as an Equity Research Analyst, firstly at Goldman Sachs Asset Management, and secondly at J&E Davy. There, his research focus was principally the gaming industry, and in particular the rise of online and mobile wagering.

He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Business from Trinity College Dublin, and is based in the group’s New York headquarters.

“David is a consummate financial executive who brings valuable institutional knowledge to FanDuel, and I'm delighted to welcome him to our leadership team,” said FanDuel Group President and CEO Amy Howe.

“As we continue to grow our business and increase our market share, David will bring a keen eye for how we can continuously improve our financial approach and discipline, a hallmark of Flutter and FanDuel’s strength.”

Based in New York with offices in California, New Jersey, Florida, Oregon, Georgia and Scotland, FanDuel Group currently has a presence across all 50 states, with 12 million customers.
