FanDuel Group, a subsidiary of Flutter Entertainment, has appointed E. Sequoyah Simermeyer to the newly established position of VP of Strategic Partnerships. 

Simermeyer boasts a distinguished career in public service, where he most recently served as the Chairman of the National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC), a Presidential appointment from the US Senate in 2019.

In his new role at FanDuel, Simermeyer aims to play a crucial part in leading the company's initiatives to cultivate sustainable commercial relationships across the United States, with a specific focus on promoting economic development that supports tribal sovereignty. 

Leveraging his experience at the NIGC – where he oversaw the $40bn Tribal Government gaming industry – Simermeyer brings valuable institutional knowledge to shape FanDuel's strategic direction.

Rikki Tanenbaum, SVP of Strategic Partnerships at FanDuel, stated: “Sequoyah Simermeyer has been at the forefront of shaping and safeguarding tribal gaming, focusing on priority issues and public policy for close to 25 years. 

“We are very honored to welcome Chairman Simermeyer to the FanDuel leadership team, as he brings a career dedicated to addressing tribal economic development. With his guidance we look forward to learning how to best partner with and support native sovereign nations across the country.”

Simermeyer himself commented: “I am joining the private sector for the first time, and it mattered to me to join a team where I could use my background as a former regulator, legislative staffer and public servant to Indian Country. 

“FanDuel is the leader in mobile gaming and has helped shape the rise of the legalised and regulated marketplace in the US. 

“Mobile gaming remains a very young and dynamic industry, and I’m excited to help the team build out our capacity to work within Indian Country nationally to take advantage of opportunities ahead.”
