| By Robert Fletcher
PointsBet Holdings has revealed a series of changes to its global leadership team, including the appointment of Jerry Bowskill as group chief technology officer and Andrew Catterall as Australian chief executive.

Bowskill replaces Manjit Gombra Singh, who joined the business in July 2019 as president for product and technology, before also being appointed as an executive director in the following October.

Gombra Singh, the former chief technology officer and executive vice president of Aristocrat Leisure, will transition to a non-executive director role from today (1 June).

Bowskill joins PointsBet from Capital International Group, where he had been serving as an executive director and CTO. Prior to this, he spent time as CTO at both The Stars Group and Scientific Games Interactive, while he held other senior technology positions with Playtech, Gaming Technologies Solutions and Partis Solutions.

“PointsBet have invested in building a talented delivery organisation that uses modern technologies to create great products,” Bowskill said. “I am greatly looking forward to helping accelerate the pace of product innovation and business scale across multiple jurisdictions.”

Meanwhile, Catterall will take on his new role as Australian CEO on 4 July. He joins PointsBet from Racing.com, where, as CEO, he led the business through a major transformation in broadcasting, digital media, rights acquisition, audience development and commercial growth.

Prior to this, Catterall held senior leadership positions at Racing Victoria and the Australian Football League (AFL).

PointsBet Group CEO Sam Swanell said: “We are very pleased that a senior executive of Jerry’s quality and experience is joining PointsBet. Jerry has a wealth of gaming technology experience across numerous organisations and brings key leadership and technology capabilities to the global business as we continue to drive our technology strategy forward.

“I am also delighted to announce the appointment of Andrew Catterall, who joins our business with a track record of end-to- end commercial and strategy leadership experience at the AFL, RVL and Racing.com and has been involved in some of the most significant transformations and growth agendas in sports entertainment in Australia. 

“As the Australian business heads towards our third consecutive year of impressive growth and EBITDA profitability, Andrew has been provided a mandate to continue this growth and to seek out important strategic opportunities which can strengthen the business.”
