Sportech has made a number of changes to the leadership of the betting technology provider’s B2B division, which sees a number of staff from the recently acquired ilottery business Lot.to take on key positions.
The highest profile appointment sees Raj Sanjanwala named group chief technology officer, with responsibility for technology strategy B2B business lines.
Sanjanwala joined Sportech as a developer in 1987, and has worked his way through the ranks to leadership positions, most recently serving as director of global tote development.
Meanwhile Andrew Lindley, co-founder of Lot.to, which Sportech acquired in February this year, has been named group chief operating officer. Lindley previously served as general counsel for the UK Tote and was been involved in setting up lottery betting operator Lottoland.
Lot.to's other co-founder Julian Bewley will serve as group chief commercial officer. He has previously held executive and advisory roles for the likes of Zeal Network, 32Red and Caesars Palace.
Serving under the new B2B technology chief Sanjanwala will be Lot.to's Lewis Theobald, who will serve as chief of digital development, while March Bacha has been promoted to director of tote development and systems analysis. Finally Brett Underhill has taken on the role of director of tote development and support.
