Alcamo will lead the firm’s human resources organization inclusive of culture development, talent acquisition, diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I), organizational effectiveness, employment branding, learning and development, compensation, and employee benefits in service to its sportsbook, casino, racing, daily fantasy, retail and corporate functions.
“I am incredibly excited to welcome Tricia to my leadership team as our new Chief People Officer,” commented Amy Howe, President & CEO of FanDuel.
“Tricia has had a distinguished career building and running award-winning human resources teams at media companies like our own and at globally trusted brands.
“Her arrival reflects our investment in our people and our commitment to a culture that recognizes and attracts the most talented team while providing them the most empathetic and inclusive environment to succeed.”

Alcamo added: “As FanDuel continues to experience rapid growth in this exciting space, the people team plays a critical role in ensuring that the organization has the culture and capabilities that will enable sustained success well into the future.
“I’m honored to be working alongside Amy and the entire leadership group to drive innovative and strategic people practices that lead to winning business outcomes and an outstanding employee experience.”
