Compliable brings in DraftKings’ licensing lead as new chief strategy officer


US gambling license platform provider Compliable has appointed Justin Stempeck, formerly director of licensing for DraftKings, as its new chief strategy officer.

Stempeck will work with the senior team at Compliable to drive the provider’s growth plans in the US, with the business having secured funding to continue developing a platform that helps US sportsbooks prepare applications and secure employee licences.

He joins Compliable after a spell as director of licensing for DraftKings, a role in which he oversaw the licensing process across all products including sportsbook, online casino and daily fantasy sports both in the US and globally.

Prior to this, he was associate general counsel at the Massachusetts Gaming Commission. where he developed policy initiatives and provided guidance for legal issues.

“Compliable is at such an impressive stage in their already fast-paced business growth,” Stempeck said. “I am very excited to become chief strategy officer for a company that has found a solution to such a significant proportion of employee licensing challenges faced by all operators and vendors.

“This is a corner of the industry that is becoming ever more crucial to operator and vendor success, and I can’t wait to help propel the process forward.”

Compliable chief executive Chris Oltyan added: “We are delighted to have Justin join us as he brings extensive gaming experience to our senior leadership team. His knowledge of the regulatory landscape will enhance our ability to navigate the complicated web of US gaming compliance.”

The appointment comes after Compliable last month added former Penn National Gaming general counsel Carl Sottosanti to its board of advisors.
