“I am greatly looking forward to helping accelerate the pace of product innovation and business scale across multiple jurisdictions.”

Brett Paton, Chairman of PointsBet, noted on Singh’s transition to Non-Executive Director: “Since joining PointsBet as part of the Executive Leadership Team and more recently as Executive Director, Manjit has made a significant contribution to our technology and cyber security capabilities, increasing the speed and reliability of our product offerings and spearheading our technology strategy, including the development of our igaming vertical.

“Given his industry experience and leadership skills, I have no doubt that Manjit will continue to make a valuable contribution to the Board.”

PointsBet has also announced that former Racing.com CEO Andrew Catterall will join as its new Australian CEO from July 4.
