DeLucia is replacing former CFO Brian Bennett, who is leaving to explore further career options. Prior to SharpLink, DeLucia served as Interim CFO at Neon Logistics, where he led the company’s financial restatements and transition to US GAAP accounting.

SharpLink CEO and Co-Founder Rob Phythian said: “Bob is a proven CFO with a superior track record of delivering results, and creating value for a wide range of public and private companies spanning a range of global industries.

“We believe he is a high-impact executive who brings us a compelling blend of strategic and capital management discipline, well-honed operating skills in high-growth environments; and deep expertise in mergers and acquisitions, capital formation, audit oversight and implementations, and SEC reporting and compliance.”

Previously, DeLucia served as Chief Accounting Officer at GTT Communications, where he led the company’s financial restructuring and oversaw the $2bn sale of its fibre backbone division.

He has also held senior positions at Eastern Airlines, Tarsus CFO Services and Taurus Aerospace Group and Aviation Technical Services.

In July, SharpLink appointed Tom Masterman as the new VP, Revenue, with the company seeking to generate new business as well as strengthen customer and partner relationships.

Reporting directly to Phythian, Masterman has over a decade of industry experience, previously serving as VP of Sales at ShotTracker, where he oversaw the integration of sports data with clients including ESPN and CBS Sports.
