FanDuel has appointed Alison Kutler as its new vice-president of sustainability and responsible gaming.
Kutler will be responsible for accelerating the responsible gaming and sustainability strategy at the Flutter Entertainment-owned US operator.
Her role will span responsible gaming policy, regulatory affairs, training, product development and operations. She will also oversee the responsible gaming advocacy teams, focusing on the company’s sportsbook, casino, racing, daily fantasy and retail functions.
Kutler will also be responsible for sustainability efforts, in keeping with parent company Flutter’s Positive Impact Plan. The plan, launched in February last year, provides support to customers, staff and the public across various areas. These include safer gambling, diversity and inclusion, community initiatives and environmental impact.
One month later, FanDuel launched a major responsible gambling advertising campaign. Then in September, FanDuel unveiled a series of initiatives to coincide with the American Gaming Association’s Responsible Gaming Education Month.
A “critical” role
FanDuel president Christian Genetski says Kutler’s role is “critical” at “such an important time for our company and the industry.”
“We are very fortunate to have a professional of Alison’s caliber join our team,” he said. “Alison has had a distinguished career, including 25 years’ experience in high-level government and private sector roles leading business, regulatory, policy and public affairs strategies.”
Kutler most recently served as senior vice-president of global government affairs for Dapper Labs, a leading NFT and blockchain developer.
She also previously worked as Visa’s senior vice-president of government affairs for the Americas and was a principal at PwC.
In addition, Kutler held positions in some of the highest levels of the US government. She was head of the Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau, special advisor to the Federal Communications Commission chairman, and director of the Department of Commerce Trade Advocacy Center.
