FSB co-founder and CEO, David McDowell, will step up to the board after 15 years of service to support new management team in next phase of FSB’s growth.

Michael Wagman, Chair of the Board, said “David has been instrumental in building what we believe to be the strongest sports betting and iGaming platform in the industry. There are few people that have his deep sector knowledge across sports betting, platform and iGaming products and we look forward to continuing our strategic collaboration as David joins the board of directors.”

David McDowell, said “As a co-founder, I will always have a place in my heart for FSB and I am extremely proud of what we have achieved together. Starting with an initial vision that live data could be used to revolutionise sports betting software, we have gone on to build a global B2B business that has pioneered the SaaS business model for sports betting services – attracting Tier 1 customers, and now managing clients and operations across five continents. We have built a business with double digit revenue growth, which handles multiple billions in turnover for our customers annually. Along the way we have won many industry awards and made the Sunday Times TechTrack100 list of fastest growing companies. I am very much looking forward to supporting the new team from my board position.”
