“I’ve no doubt that he will continue to drive FSB forward in the region and deliver rapid growth in North America next year and beyond.”
Following his appointment Van Ermen said: “Working at FSB over the last year and watching the company grow fast has been exhilarating. I’m hugely looking forward to taking a leadership role and driving this talented sales team forward. We have major plans in the region, and increasing investment into our dedicated North American team will advance as we continue to thrive into 2022.
“The reaction to our world-leading omnichannel sportsbook and comprehensive tech stack has been nothing short of amazing in North America this year. I feel immensely excited and passionate about the opportunity that awaits us in the region moving forward."
