Winners, Inc. subsidiary VegasWinners announced Wednesday that it has appointed former 888sport executive Todd Kobrin as President, and former Customer Acquisition Manager at Tabcorp, Andy Scott, as new Chief Marketing Officer.
Wayne Allyn Root, CEO of Winners subsidiary VegasWinners, said: “The backgrounds of Todd and Andy define excellence in the sports gaming and online gaming sectors. We conducted a search for two executives with this kind of extensive background in our industry. It’s a relatively new industry and therefore not easy to find two executives with such dynamic resumes. We are thrilled to welcome them to VegasWinners. Not only do they have a unique understanding of online sports betting and marketing, but both Todd and Andy are also experts in the field of affiliate deals to earn fees and commissions with the largest, legal, licensed sportsbooks in the country. We now have the ideal combination to turn VegasWinners into the sports betting information and advice leader we all envision.”
