Former Penn National Gaming executive Carl Sottosanti has been appointed to the board of directors at Fubo Gaming, having also been named the new chairman of its gaming compliance committee.
Having first joined Penn National in 2003, Sottosanti focused primarily on mergers and acquisitions, gaming development opportunities, corporate governance and compliance. He then went on to become the company’s executive vice president and general counsel.
“I am excited to join Fubo Gaming’s board of directors,” said Sottosanti. “Their talented team and unique content and technology will be a potent combination in the growing interactive wagering space.”
Prior to his time at Penn National, Sottosanti held a number of senior legal roles at Sanchez Computer Associates and Salient Three Communication.
His appointment comes at a time when Fubo Gaming is preparing its Fubo Sportsbook, which is expected to launch in Q4 2020 pending the necessary regulatory approvals.
“With extensive experience in the gaming industry, including almost 18 years as an executive at Penn National, Carl will bring valuable industry and unique legal and compliance insight to Fubo Gaming,” said David Gandler, co-founder and CEO, fuboTV.
“I’m looking forward to working with Carl as we set out to transform streaming and betting into a combined interactive television experience.”
