Online gaming operator PointsBet has appointed Dr Eric Lee as its new Vice President of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI).
Lee will oversee all of PointsBet’s DEI-related efforts and initiatives, leading its DEI Committee and directing a long-term strategic approach to help the operator become a more diverse and inclusive organization and workplace.
PointsBet Chief of People, Rachelle Carpenter, commented: “We are absolutely delighted to have Eric’s wealth of experience on board as we continue to strive towards a more diverse organization and workplace culture.
“I have no doubt that his efforts will help push us forward as a brand and culture to ensure we offer the best employee experience and a strong sense of inclusion and belonging here at PointsBet. I look forward to Eric spearheading our DEI efforts and the positive ramifications it will bring to our teams and customers around the world.”
Lee has over 20 years of academic, corporate, and leadership experience in developing and executing high-impact diversity and inclusion, hiring and recruitment, and retention initiatives. Before PointsBet, he was the Assistant Vice President of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at Colorado College.
Lee also executed the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion plan for Fortune 500 company TEKsystems. His leadership development program was tailored to identify, retain, and promote top-performing people of color throughout the organization; whilst the program model grew to become TEKsystems’ talent pipeline for formal sales, executive, and operation leadership programs.
