PointsBet appoints Aonghus Mulvihill as sportsbook trading VP


Online gaming operator PointsBet has announced the appointment of Aonghus Mulvihill as its new vice president of global sportsbook trading.

Mulvihill has 15 years of experience in international sports betting, having previously held the roles of director of corporate strategy at Flutter Group and head of performance, proposition and trading at Betfair Exchange.

Prior to his new position, Mulvihill was the commercial director at Betfair International Sports.

“PointsBet’s technology and the company culture we’re building has proven time and again to be a draw for our industry’s smartest minds, and the addition of Aonghus is another example of our commitment to and vision for excellence,” said Johnny Aitken, CEO of PointsBet USA.

“Aonghus has the mind and motivation required to help us take the next step as PointsBet continues to innovate and capitalize on the investments we’ve made to deliver the fastest and most unique customer experience in sports betting today – and we’re just getting started.”

In his new position, Mulvihill will head PointsBet’s global team of sports analysts and will work with the product, tech and marketing divisions.

“Having watched PointsBet’s incredible expansion, including the recent acquisition of Banach Technology in Ireland, I’m absolutely thrilled to join the leadership team for a truly unique company that is putting technology first and delivering an unparalleled experience for customers around the world,” said Mulvihill.

“After shaking up the Australian betting market, PointsBet has quickly and strategically developed into one of the premium sportsbooks in the United States, continuing to build upon its unique technology offering and attracting industry-leading talent. This appointment is a dream come true.”

Last week, PointsBet announced that it had raised AUD$81m (£43.1m/€50.4m/US$59.9m) through an institutional entitlement offer, in addition to AUD$215m raised in July.

Last month, PointsBet posted a 153.9% revenue climb in its full-year 2021 results.
