DraftKings has appointed Jennifer Aguiar as its Chief Compliance Officer. Previously, Aguiar served as the company’s Vice President of Compliance and Risk.
As Chief Compliance Officer, Aguiar will be responsible for overseeing corporate compliance and enterprise risk management. Among other responsibilities, she will ensure DraftKings’ compliance with all U.S. and international licensing requirements related to daily fantasy sports, sports betting, and iGaming.
“Jennifer has been an instrumental asset to our organization, successfully navigating the company through the emergence of daily fantasy sports and the state-by-state licensing and regulatory process. The compliance framework developed by Jennifer has been a critical element in positioning DraftKings to enter new states quickly following the legalization of sports betting and iGaming. She has created a culture of compliance at DraftKings and will continue to play a pivotal role in the company’s growth,” Jason Robins, co-founder, CEO, and Chairman of DraftKings, said.
Aguiar joined DraftKings in 2016 as Head of Compliance and Risk and led the development of the internal DraftKings compliance program from the ground up. Aguiar implemented a rigorous education and certification program for the compliance team, customer-facing employees and the company at large which instilled a uniform risk management and regulatory focus across all aspects of the business.
