Chief Legal Officer
I am the Chief Legal Officer and General Counsel at Kambi, sitting on the executive committee of Kambi Group plc. I currently manage nine lawyers across the UK and Stockholm, with responsibility for the Insurance, Regulatory Audit, Legal and Licensing functions. I have over 14 years’ legal and strategy consulting experience and am highly experienced in: the provision of strategic and commercial advice at Board and exec level; negotiation; leadership of complex commercial and corporate projects; management of transformation programmes; and leadership of complex disputes.
I assess and advise on risk within the context of business requirements and opportunities and I enjoy process improvement and finding solutions to problems. I have broad leadership experience and have managed the recruitment, growth and development of high-performing multi-jurisdictional legal and regulatory teams. In 2018 I was highly commended by the Law Society for its In-house Solicitor of the Year award.
Kambi is a fast growing global technology business. It has over 700 employees across seven international offices and is a market leader in the provision of outsourced gaming services. In 2018, Kambi was awarded the Online Sports Betting Supplier of the Year award at the Global Gaming Awards.
Also in 2018, Kambi made history by entering into an agreement with DraftKings to take the initial online sports wager in America. The legal function was critical in ensuring that Kambi and DraftKings was the first partnership to be issued with a transactional waiver by the NJDGE, and it’s been a privilege working with the team to make a success of the opportunity afforded by the recent US Supreme Court decision.
