Flutter Entertainment-owned FanDuel Group has announced the appointment of Andrew Sheh as its new chief technology officer.
In his new role, Sheh will be responsible for the oversight of FanDuel’s customer-facing engineering and platform development teams, as well as all IT architecture and personnel.
Sheh brings more than 20 years of experience to FanDuel, having most recent served as senior vice president of engineering at real estate technology brokerage business Compass.
Prior to this, Sheh was chief technology officer at real estate technology group Remine and also had a spell as product director at IT services and consulting business CEB.
Sheh also spent time as technical lead at software developer Palantir Technologies and senior member of technical staff for space satellite programs at defence and space manufacturing business Sandia National Laboratories.
“There is no faster growing and more competitive space in tech than mobile gaming,” Sheh, said. “It is a sector that requires the most innovative solutions to differentiate FanDuel from the competition and I am excited to build FanDuel into the leading gaming platform in the world.”
FanDuel president and chief executive Amy Howe added: “FanDuel’s consistent focus on technology that drives innovation has been the fuel to our industry leading performance.
“I am confident that Andrew has the experience and vision to help us continue to extend that advantage into the future.”
The appointment comes after FanDuel earlier this month also named former PokerStars director Asaf Noifeld as its first managing director of casino. In the newly created role, Noifeld assumes responsibility for the oversight of the FanDuel online casino business.
