Caesars Entertainment has announced that it has appointed BetMGM Vice President of Gaming Matt Sunderland as its new Senior Vice President of iGaming.
Sunderland, who will begin in his new role on October 1, has more than 20 years of experience in the online gaming industry. In recent years, he oversaw BetMGM’s expansion into numerous new jurisdictions across North America and beyond.
Prior to working at BetMGM, he worked as an iGaming consultant for GVC and MGM Resorts and he has also held several senior-leadership roles at Probability PLC, GTECH/IGT, and CNN International.
“This is an exciting time to be in iGaming and at Caesars Entertainment,” said Sunderland. “As the industry continues to grow, I’m looking forward to identifying new potential for our iGaming business, while continuing to bring top-notch service to our customers.”
Eric Hession, President of Caesars Digital, added that Sunderland’s “deep experience and successful track record will be a tremendous asset” as the company continues to grow its iGaming and sports betting operations.
Caesars Entertainment launched Caesars Sportsbook & Casino in April 2021, operates more retail sportsbooks across the U.S. than any other company, and recently added regulated online gaming to its operations in the Ontario market, which have long included the Caesars Windsor bricks-and-mortar casino.
