DraftKings selects Aguiar as new compliance chief

| By Richard Mulligan
Jennifer Aguiar will become DraftKings' new chief compliance officer as Tim Dent, one of DraftKings’ longest-serving executives, leaves the operator to pursue a consultant role.

As CCO, Aguiar will be responsible for overseeing corporate compliance and enterprise risk management. Among other responsibilities, she will ensure DraftKings’ compliance with all US and international licensing requirements related to daily fantasy sports, sports betting and igaming.

“Jennifer has been an instrumental asset to our organisation, successfully navigating the company through the emergence of daily fantasy sports and the state-by-state licensing and regulatory process,” Robins said.

“The compliance framework developed by Jennifer has been a critical element in positioning DraftKings to enter new states quickly following the legalisation of sports betting and igaming. She has created a culture of compliance at DraftKings and will continue to play a pivotal role in the company’s growth.”

Aguiar joined DraftKings in 2016 as head of compliance and risk and led the development of the internal DraftKings compliance program from the ground up.
