Renshaw, who has been with SSG for 14 years, will succeed Alan Byrne in the role, stepping in with immediate effect.
“Alan, I and our management team have spent the last few months crystallising exactly where we can accelerate growth and find new areas of opportunity,” said Renshaw.
“We’re absolutely clear on where we want to take Spotlight Sports Group and I am tremendously excited about the path we’re on to grow our people and our business. My thanks go to Alan for all of his support during our time working together, and I am delighted he is allowing us to leverage his remarkable experience in his new capacity.
“We have the greatest team we’ve ever had – working on huge betting brands, such as Racing Post in the UK and Pickswise in North America. I’m equally excited about our global B2B division, which allows our sportsbook, publishing and fantasy sports partners to leverage our products, content and conversion-led expertise to drive sustainable and attributable revenue growth.”
Byrne remains as a Director of the business, while he will also assume a new advisory role.
Byrne commented: “It is a delight to see Mark appointed. He has been at the heart of most of the best things SSG has achieved in recent years and I have thoroughly enjoyed working with him.
“I know Mark has all of the skills required to lead the excellent SSG team and will continue to drive the growth of the company in the UK, North America and beyond.”
