Sports data provider Sportradar has appointed former Interwetten chief executive Werner Becher as managing director of US betting.
According to Sportradar, Becher will oversee the development and execution of its US strategy, based in New York.
“We are delighted to welcome Werner as our managing director of US betting,” Carsten Koerl, chief executive at Sportradar said. “Since we first opened for business in the US several years ago, we have experienced the rapid growth of sports betting in the region and fully expect this to continue for many more years as new states regulate.
“I am confident that Werner’s deep expertise will help us to both maximise the tremendous opportunity we have to grow our market share and further enable the expansion of this key market.”
