Online bookmaker FanDuel has announced that Carolyn Renzin has been promoted from compliance chief to the role of chief legal officer.
As part of her new role, Renzin will oversee all of FanDuel’s compliance and regulatory operations as well as its responsible gaming and harm reduction obligations, according to the company.
Renzin first joined FanDuel last year as its chief risk and compliance officer. Prior to that, she spent time as an assistant general counsel for JPMorgan Chase & Co., and also gained experience as a regulatory consultant for Guidepost Solutions.
FanDuel, which is owned by Irish-listed Flutter Entertainment, has had a meteoric rise in the online sports betting and fantasy sports industries over the last five years.
The company reportedly took in 19 million wagers during this year’s NCAA March Madness tournament, as well as eight million wagers on the Super Bowl alone.
