Racing Post has announced the appointment of Nikos Kryvossidis as its new Chief Technology Officer (CTO). Kryvossidis takes over from Paul Carse who departed the business earlier this year.
Kryvossidis joins Racing Post from Camelot Global where he was CTO and responsible for the Camelot UK Digital offering. Before Camelot, Nikos worked at Openbet as SVP Technology, where he was responsible for the management of the sportsbook and casino divisions.
The appointment of Kryvossidis as CTO sees Racing Post expand its technology resources and competencies as the business focuses on furthering its digital output. This investment in digital is evident with the recent appointment of Edgardo Savoy in the newly created role of Director of Software Engineering. Savoy joined from Paddy Power Betfair where he held roles across the retail and digital sides of the business.
Racing Post CEO Alan Byrne commented on the appointments: “Having the expertise, flair and skills of both Nikos and Edgardo is a great boost for Racing Post. Both have considerable experience, not only in all technical aspects of our industry but in working for global organisations."
Nikos Kryvossidis commented: "I am looking forward to working with such a respected brand as Racing Post and building on the company’s recent successes".
Edgardo Savoy commented: "Racing Post is an amazing brand and the company has a great customer culture. The journey ahead is all about using technology to create value for customers, at pace. It's exciting."
