The expansion of PointsBet into Canada will offer diverse jobs as well as give sports fans in Canada an entertaining and exciting experience.
“The sports-betting industry has demonstrated how it can entertain consumers, engage sports fans and deliver quality products, and PointsBet has been at the forefront of doing it the right way in markets around the world. We’re going to build a modern, responsible, distinctly Canadian operation and I can’t wait to get started.” Commented Vanderwel.
Vanderwel was previously the senior vice-president for Roger Communications. He will officially start on August 17, 2021 and will report to Sam Swanell, PointsBet Global CEO.
“We’re thrilled that Scott has agreed to serve as the first CEO of PointsBet Canada and help us build a team and a business strategy that can serve the new Canadian market with the same sort of creativity and customer-focus that our clients in the U.S. and around the world have come to expect from PointsBet,” said Swanell.
After being founded in Australia, PointsBet sportsbook is now one of the top sportsbooks in the United States. The app is available in New Jersey, Iowa, Colorado, Indiana, Illinois, and Michigan. But it is quickly expanding into other states with legal betting. The sportsbook just announced a partnership with Cliff Castle Casino Hotel to apply for a sports betting license in Arizona.
PointsBet has recently been in the news due to naming Drew Brees as its brand ambassador and a shareholder.
