Betting and igaming operator Rush Street Interactive (RSI) has appointed Lauren Seiler to the newly created role of associate vice president of investor relations and development.
In the new position, Seiler will lead RSI’s investor relations efforts and work with the team to drive RSI’s growth, development and M&A initiatives.
Seiler joins RSI having most recently served as managing director and head of strategy for global corporate development and investor relations at boutique investment management business Four Wood Capital Partners.
Prior to this, Seiler was director of institutional equities, specialising in casino and gaming, for the Buckingham Research Group, and also spent time with Unino Gaming, the Telsey Advisory Group and Deutsche Bank.
“We are in the early stages of development for the greater igaming and sports betting markets, and Rush Street Interactive is uniquely positioned as a best-in-class operator to both gain share in existing jurisdictions and lead the charge into future jurisdictions around the globe,” Seiler said.
RSI chief financial officer Kyle Sauers added: “Lauren brings a strong network of relationships and experience with both the sell-side and buy-side communities and a deep knowledge of the capital markets.
“Her financial and strategic skills will be a great asset as we continue to grow RSI as a leader in online gaming.”
At the end of 2020, Rush Street Interactive spun off from parent company Rush Street Gaming into a publicly listed standalone business, through a combination with special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) dMY Technology Group.
