BRAGG GROUP ADDS EX- SB TECH CEO TO BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Toronto- based Bragg Gaming Group Inc. announced Wednesday that former SB Tech chief executive Richard Carter will be joining its board of directors. Carter had been CEO of SB Tech, an interactive sports betting company, for the past five years before agreeing to merge it in April with Draftkings Inc. and Diamond Eagle Acquisition Corp. in a three- way deal valued at $3.3 billion. Carter will act as non-executive chair and will help Bragg interim CEO Adam Arviv on the development of a global strategy, Bragg said. “This appointment fits my mission as Interim CEO — to build a championship team that will execute on our plans to expand our current market overseas and to aggressively move into the U.S. market,” Arviv said. Bragg shares were up more than 17 per cent in afternoon trading in Toronto.
