DraftKings Appoints Brian Angiolet as Chief Media Officer

 

DraftKings has appointed Brian Angiolet as its first-ever Chief Media Officer.

Most recently, Angiolet served as SVP and Chief Business Officer at Verizon Communications Inc. During his tenure at Verizon, Angiolet spearheaded a number of high-profile, multi-billion-dollar content and advertising initiatives including broadcasting, sports and digital entertainment deals across Verizon’s Fios and media properties, partnerships with premier sports leagues like the NFL and NBA, and oversight of Verizon Wireless’ advertising and media portfolio.

“Brian brings invaluable experience to this new Chief Media Officer position and deeply understands how the virtuous circle among sports, gaming, and content has the potential to boost engagement. As our media presence grows with the acquisition of VSiN, among other strategic moves, Brian’s creative ideas and insightful perspectives will further propel the possibilities of DraftKings content. Our warmest welcome to Brian, and we’re thrilled to have him aboard,” Jason Robins, CEO and co-founder of DraftKings, said.

“The DraftKings arrow is pointing straight up and I see massive opportunity to unleash this platform and integrate it with the world of content. To me it’s all about enhancing the experience we provide, and I look forward to working alongside the team and our partners at this important juncture for the company,” Angiolet said.
