Secure Sports Solutions (S3), the joint venture of Odds On Compliance and U.S. Integrity, has appointed industry veteran Matt Heap as managing director.
Heap will oversee ProhiBet’s strategic direction and operations, working closely with S3’s executive teams from Odds On Compliance and U.S. Integrity to further expand the client base for its sports betting technology solutions.
He brings with him almost 30 years of regulatory experience, including more than 28 years as chief and deputy director of operations for the State of Colorado’s Department of Revenue.
Heap also served deputy director and chief of sports betting for the Colorado Division of Gaming from June 2019 to June 2022, after which he left to become senior director of product compliance at GeoComply.
Established in February, S3 recently launched a pilot program for ProhiBet, which the two parties say is the only solution for monitoring compliance with regulatory requirements for prohibited persons via an encrypted, decentralized cross-monitoring and notification platform.
“I am excited to join USI and Odds On to launch ProhiBet and continue to develop cutting-edge solutions that enable the industry to offer safe and secure sports betting experiences to their customers,” Heap said.
Odds On Compliance chief executive Eric Frank added: “Matt’s extensive experience in the sports betting industry and his proven track record of developing innovative solutions to protect against fraud and ensure the integrity of sports betting operations make him the ideal candidate for this role.”
