SIS Names Non-Exec Directors

SIS (Sports Information Services), a leading multi-channel supplier of 24/7 live betting services, has appointed two new non-executive directors to support its international expansion.

Laila Mintas is currently CEO of Play Up USA and is a former deputy president of Sportradar USA. She has spent more than 15 years in the betting and gaming industry and is an expert in the legislation and regulation of sports betting. Based in Las Vegas, Mintas “will be invaluable in supporting the U.S. business as legislation for fixed odds betting starts to be approved,” SIS said in a statement.

Mintas will be joined by Giovanna D’Esposito, general manager of Southern Europe for Uber. She previously held managing director roles in Italy for Sky Betting and Paddy Power Betfair, growing the latter to an annual turnover of over $300 million and more than 100 employees in less than a year. D’Esposito has extensive experience in complex, multi-jurisdiction businesses and brings high level operational excellence to bear.

Both women bring many years’ experience of working at some of the world’s leading data and technology companies to their roles and add significant strength to the SIS board

SIS Chief Executive Richard Ames said: “Laila and Giovanna are both tremendous signings for SIS. We are very much looking forward to working with them and tapping into a combined knowledge that will have serious benefits to our work outside the U.K.

“Laila joins following the announcement of our U.S. subsidiary, SIS Content Service Inc., and will be an invaluable support to the team there, whilst Giovanna provides a real boost in European online markets and beyond at a time when our international expansion continues apace.”

Mintas said: “These are exciting times for everybody at SIS and I am keen to help them exploit both 30 years’ experience in the U.K. market and a great portfolio of products and services in the coming months.

D’Esposito added: “It is an honor to be asked to be a non-exec at SIS and I am eager to get started with Richard and his team as they make further strides in international markets.”
