SBTech names Isaacs Non-Executive Chairman

London-based SBTech, a leading sports betting and gaming technology supplier, has appointed former Scientific Games CEO and Vice Chairman Gavin Isaacs as its new non-executive chairman.

Isaacs, who joined SBTech in January, will use his 20 years of gaming experience across a series of senior management positions to further grow the company’s rapidly expanding U.S. presence. Since the market opened in mid-2018, SBTech has completed and gone live with several partnership agreements with leading casinos in regulated states including New Jersey and Mississippi.

Isaacs spent four years as CEO and board member of Scientific Games and was responsible for championing game-changing mergers and acquisitions and growing the global lottery and gaming supplier from $1.3 billion to $2.9 billion in revenues in just two years, before moving to the position of vice chairman of the board.
