Former Ladbrokes director joins SIS

News on 17 Jul 2017

Sports betting content provider Sports Information Services (SIS) has strengthened its senior management team with the appointment of Dominic Matthews in the newly-created role of Chief Operations Officer.

Matthews joins from Ladbrokes, where he held a number of senior positions during a 26-year period with the operator, including most recently Commercial Projects Director and Retail Operations Director.

At SIS Matthews will be responsible for all the operational and commercial teams across the business, ensuing alignment of both the company’s strategic direction and the efficiency of its day-to-day operational functions.

He will report directly to Chief Executive Richard Ames, who took over as CEO last month.

“Dominic’s appointment to our senior management team is a major coup for SIS and I’m delighted to welcome him to the company,” said Ames. “He brings a wealth of experience to the role having been an integral part of the betting industry for so many years. After working with him during my time at Ladbrokes, I know he will prove to be a valuable asset as we look to improve our operations.”

As a result of the new appointment, a company restructure sees Commercial Director Paul Witten take on the role of Product Director, recently vacated by Ames. All commercial team members will now report to Sales Director Sandra McWilliams, who joined SIS in May.
