Renzin will assume her new role while also continuing in her position as chief compliance officer, a role she has served in since January 2021.
Among Renzin’s responsibilities will be overseeing legal, risk, regulatory engagement, compliance and responsible gaming for the group, with a focus on customer safety and security.
Renzin joined FanDuel in October 2019 as vice president for regulatory and compliance, prior to which she spent over six years working in a number of roles for JPMorgan Chase & Co.
Earlier in her career, she spent times as manging director at Guidepost Solutions and almost nine years with law firm Stillman, Friedman & Shechtman, first as an associate and later a partner.
In addition, Renzin had one year as an associate with Simpson Thacher and Bartlett and spent over 12 months as a judicial law clerk on the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
“Carolyn is a passionate, bright, empathetic and extremely hard-working leader and colleague,” FanDuel president Christian Genetski said. “In her time at FanDuel, she has led transformative change for our business in building out a regulatory and compliance function befitting the current and future scale of our company.
“I’m confident she is the right choice to lead our high-performing legal team going forward.”
The appointment comes after FanDuel last month also named Christian Genetski as its new president and Mike Raffensperger as chief commercial officer.
Genetski took on his new role having served as the group’s chief legal officer for the past seven and a half years, prior to which he spent a year as its chief commercial officer.
Raffensperger moved into the position of chief commercial officer after four and a half years as chief marketing officer at FanDuel.
