Head of iGaming, Chalkline Sports
Head of iGaming and African markets at Chalkline Sports, a marketing technology platform that powers customer acquisition and retention for regulated gaming. I have more than 20 years experience in sports betting operations and online sports betting technology and have worked with sports betting operators around the world.
I was a co-founder of South Africa’s first online bookmaker and a former General Manager of Sun International’s sports betting division, Sunbet.
I have travelled extensively and spent many months in the trading rooms of major international sports books in South Africa, UK, Ireland and Gibraltar. During that time, I have built up a thorough understanding of the trading operations and technology required to run a successful sportsbook.
I have extensive mathematical and statistical training, which has been applied to the development of betting products, trading methodologies, trading and risk management tools and business intelligence applications.
I studied at NMMU and Wits University. I am a keen sportsman and Ironman triathlete, completing Ironman South Africa in 2008 and 2009.
