BetMakers Technology Group has appointed lawyer Rebekah Giles as its independent non-executive director.

With more than 20 years’ experience as a legal practitioner working in private practice and specialising in contentious matters, Giles is experienced in regulatory investigations, matters of reputational risk and inquiries.

She previously served as chair of the board of governors for the Centennial Parklands Foundation, Greyhound Racing NSW and the Association for Women in Insurance among others.

BetMakers chairman, Nick Chan, said: “We are delighted to welcome Rebekah to the company’s board. Rebekah’s experience in complex regulatory matters and her distinguished career in Australian and international legal circles makes her appointment an excellent addition to BetMakers at an important time in the company’s global growth strategy”

Giles has worked across non-executive directorships in government, sport and private enterprise. This includes industry experience in racing, wherein she worked closely with a number of cup winners.

Giles commented, “I am thrilled to be joining the board of BetMakers. The company has achieved significant growth in recent years to become a leading player in the B2B wagering technology sector across the world and I have been impressed by the management’s vision and strategy. The company is ambitious and clearly well positioned to execute the next phases of growth.”

In January, BetMakers appointed Christian Stuart as its North American CEO as part of the company’s expansion plan.

Yesterday BetMakers announced that it would power Australian operator CrossBet’s entrance into the Canadian market.
