Scientific Games Corporation has added to the senior management team of SG Digital with the appointment of Nikos Konstakis as its new VP sportsbook product. Konstakis will be responsible for overseeing OpenBet’s product development roadmap and delivering and enhancing its sportsbook proposition for its customers following the Supreme Court’s overturning of the Professional and Amateur Sports Betting Act. He was previously VP trading at OpenBet and spent 16 years at Intralot, an Athens-based gaming company, with his last position being group director of betting.
“Appointing Nikos to the role of VP sportsbook product is an important step in our strategy towards productization and developing the next generation of the OpenBet portfolio," said Keith O’Loughlin, SVP sportsbook and platforms at SG Digital. “His knowledge of the sports betting industry is a valuable asset for us, and he is already playing a key role in our preparations for entry into the U.S. regulated market with a significantly improved proposition.”
“I’m thrilled to have started my new role with SG Digital in an extremely exciting period for the company and our industry," said Konstakis.“We have a strong customer base, and I look forward to working closely alongside our partners, delivering them value with our world-class OpenBet sportsbook, as well as introducing innovative product enhancements to take the platform to the next level.”
