Online gambling platform developer i3 Interactive has appointed Andrew Lee and Ian Marmion to its management team to support the launch of its new Blitzbet sportsbook brand.
Lee will take on the role of managing director at Blitzbet, while Marmion has been appointed as trading director for the brand.
In his new role, Lee will assume responsibility for the performance, growth and strategic direction of i3’s sports betting business and casino products, including the launch of BlitzBet.
Lee has been involved in the online gambling industry since 2000, having had spells as managing director at William Hill Online and managing director of sportsbook for The Stars Group.
“The company’s approach of partnering with a social media celebrity with over 50 million followers is refreshingly unique and a powerful proposition,” Lee said. “They have built a great team already and I look forward to being part of this compelling opportunity.”
