Flutter Entertainment has appointed Amy Howe as CEO of FanDuel.
Amy joined FanDuel in February 2021 as President with responsibility for leading the company’s core commercial functions across its Sportsbook, Casino, Racing, and Daily Fantasy businesses. She was appointed as Interim CEO in July.
Prior to joining FanDuel, Amy was Global Chief Operating Officer of Ticketmaster, the largest division of Live Nation Entertainment. Before that, Amy was a Partner at McKinsey & Company where she enjoyed a distinguished 15-year career advising clients in the Media & Entertainment, Retail, and Consumer Goods sectors on areas such as growth strategy, restructuring and turnarounds, organizational transformation and commercial and operational excellence.
“I am delighted to confirm the appointment of Amy as our new US CEO. Since joining the business at the start of this year she has done an excellent job of leading our commercial functions and ensuring that we execute well at this critical phase of growth for our business. The expansion of the US market represents the single most exciting opportunity for Flutter today. Amy’s track record of leadership and experience in scaling a digital business will be invaluable as we look to grow our leadership position there,” Peter Jackson, CEO of Flutter Entertainment, said.
“I am very pleased to be appointed the CEO of FanDuel at such an exciting time. Since joining the business, I have been very impressed by the quality of our team and the strategic advantages we enjoy in terms of brand reach, product quality and the broad expertise we leverage from being part of the wider Flutter Group. That said, we must avoid complacency and remain focused on executing our long-term strategy to build the embedded value of the business. I look forward to working with Peter and the wider team to drive FanDuel’s continued success,” Amy Howe, CEO of FanDuel, said.
