Reading Time: 2 minutes

FairPlay Sports Media (FPSM), the global sports media network fuelled by data and powered by fans, has today announced the addition of Kelly Brooks, Matt Robinson, and Niall Dore to its Executive Team following Richard Gale’s appointment in late 2023, bringing a wealth of technical and commercial expertise into its senior leadership group.

Having joined as Chief Revenue Officer in late 2023, Richard Gale has already been instrumental in refining the group’s commercial strategy, utilising his igaming and affiliate network knowhow from a previous VP Sports role at Catena Media and as founder of marketing and commercial consultants The Anorak Group.

Kelly Brooks, founder and former CEO of recently acquired Quarter4, has been appointed to the role of Chief Product Officer, where she will apply her AI acumen and transformation experience to enhance FairPlay’s BetTech capabilities and manifest Quarter4’s AI potential when integrated across all relevant products and components.

Bringing internal expertise from his previous role as Head of Technology at oddschecker, Matt Robinson has now been named Chief Technology Officer of the FairPlay group. Matt has been working in igaming technology for over 10 years, leading the technology growth of the organisation and expanding the team from 7 to 100 across 3 regions. Robinson will be responsible for implementing a synchronised technical strategy for the sports media network.

Niall Dore completes the C-Level appointments joining as Chief Financial Officer. Dore adds two decades of senior financial experience in scaling both gaming and technology businesses, including roles as Betfair’s Finance Director and, more recently, CFO of SaaS business Findmypast.

Stuart Simms, FairPlay Sports Media’s Group CEO, said of the new additions, “We’re in a unique position to deliver technical solutions and product enhancements that can make a real difference in the global betting space, and bringing Richard, Kelly, Matt, and Niall onto the team will help us execute our ambitious plans with accuracy and expediency.”

Richard Gale, FairPlay Sports Media CRO, commented, “FairPlay Sports Media is trying to set the bar higher for what can be achieved in the sports betting and affiliate spaces, and it’s been a pleasure working with Stuart and the team in shaping what this new vision looks like and how it can benefit our various sportsbook, media and publishing partners.”

Kelly Brooks, FairPlay Sports Media CPO, commented, “Working with the wider FairPlay team over the past few months, I’ve now seen first-hand the talent and tech capabilities across the group, and as CPO, I’m hugely excited to realise the full potential available and deliver truly game-changing products to market in the near future.”

Matt Robinson, FairPlay Sports Media CTO, added, “Creating an aligned and integrated technical approach across our various brands represents a project that I can’t wait to get my teeth into. Working with oddschecker, I know what can be achieved with big data and a strong brand vision, and the potential for FairPlay’s betting technology revolution to make a step change is undeniable.”

Niall Dore, FairPlay Sports Media CFO, said, “In its new era as a sports media network operating beyond just the odds, FairPlay is perfectly placed to harness the combined power of its various brands into more than the sum of their individual parts. I’m eager to apply my experience in both gaming and technology businesses to facilitate this strategy in a profitable, sustainable manner.”

These four recent hires coalesce around FairPlay’s recent rebrand proposition of being a hugely scalable tech-first organisation that leverages its vast data assets with the latest in BetTech to bring about a better betting ecosystem for all.

Meridianbet, a member of the Golden Matrix Group (NASDAQ: GMGI), in partnership with Meridianbet Foundation, Expanse Studios, and BC Crvena zvezda Meridianbet announces the launch of a significant humanitarian initiative, ‘Scan. Help.’, aimed at supporting maternity hospitals across Southeast Europe.

The rollout of this action to other market territories is expected in the remainder of 2024.

How It Works

For every scanned QR code and subsequent registration on the Meridian Foundation’s website, funds will be allocated towards equipping five maternity hospitals in Serbia. This innovative approach not only raises awareness but also actively involves the community in our CSR activities.

The initiative is currently ongoing with high media presence and is broadcasted during Southeast Europe’s regional basketball Finals series (ABA League). BC Red Star players wear jerseys featuring the QR code, with additional promotion through basketball arena ads, TV ads, and more, encouraging fans and supporters to participate.

A Unified Effort for Community Impact

The ‘Scan. Help.’ campaign is a collaborative effort involving Meridianbet, Meridianbet foundation, Expanse Studios, and basketball club Crvena zvezda Meridianbet, Southeast Europe’s leading basketball club, of which Meridianbet is the name sponsor. The initiative is designed to leverage our collective resources and influence to make a meaningful impact on local communities.

Multi-Stakeholder Support and Growing Participation

The ‘Scan. Help.’ campaign has received institutional support ad backing from the Ministry of Health, reinforcing the importance and legitimacy of this cause. Additionally, several companies have already expressed their desire to contribute, with provisions made for donations through the Meridian Foundation’s account. This broadening support network amplifies the initiative’s reach and potential impact.

This campaign exemplifies Meridianbet’s dedication to sustainable development and community well-being. In 2023 alone, the company has launched 225 CSR campaigns, reflecting the commitment to making a lasting impact.
