stanleybet-challenge-frenchBacked by a solid reputation, Stanleybet, one of Europe’s leading cross-border sports betting operators, was granted an F1 terrestrial licence by the Belgian Gambling Commission earlier this year in April.

The company has intermediaries located in Cyprus, Germany and Italy, as well as locally licensed outlets in Croatia, Poland and Romania – making a total of over 2,000 outlets and employing over 3,000 personnel in Europe.

But now, the company has decided to shake things up a little and pass the torch at the upper management level. The company has turned to new leadership by appointing David Purvis as the company’s new CEO.

Purvis will assume his CEO responsibilities with immediate effect and takes over the top role after having joined Stanleybet in September 2008. Prior to being promoted to CEO, Purvis worked in various roles including general director and international managing director.

Before joining Stanleybet, Purvis served as managing director of Cyberview plc, and as sales & marketing director at Inspired Gaming Group plc.

Purvis will replace former CEO John Whittaker, who will remain on board as a strategic adviser to the group.
