DraftKings Sportsbook has appointed Johnny Avello as the director of its sports betting team. He was acting as the executive director post at Wynn Resorts for the last 13 years.
Avello, an industry veteran with close to half a century of experience in the betting industry, will oversee the retail sportsbook trading and risk management.
Matt Kalish, co-founder of DraftKings and the company’s chief revenue officer, said: “Johnny is considered a legend in Las Vegas. He is very respected in the gaming industry and brings well over 30 years of experience, insights and ideas to DraftKings. We’re committed to building a world-class sports betting operation by putting together amazing talent with diverse experiences and backgrounds, and Johnny’s arrival brings us one step closer to that goal.”
Avello, who started his new role on Monday, is expected to help the company boost its land-based sports betting operations in a industry that has been recently legalised on a federal level and is awaiting for new guidelines.
