Spotlight Sports Group has strengthened its leadership team after naming Rob Lee as new Senior Vice President of Technology.
Joining the company from Sky Betting and Gaming, where he served as Director of Technology, Lee will now oversee Spotlight Sports Group’s rapidly growing senior technology team in addition to the delivery of “increasingly ambitious B2B and B2C technology”.
“Spotlight Sports Group has a history of producing top-class technology. Having transformed the business in recent years from a print to a digital-first business, it’s an exciting time to join the team,” commented Lee.
“We have some huge projects to deliver on in the short and long-term as well as an exciting, ambitious team to work with. On both sides of the Atlantic, our products are industry-leading and I’m looking forward to getting involved.”
Lee’s addition to the company, Spotlight Sports Group believes, is a clear demonstration of the company’s commitment to delivering technology for its B2B and B2C audiences across Europe and the US.
