Esports betting platform Midnite has continued to strengthen its growing team with the appointment of James McMath as Head of Communications.
UK-based Midnite, which offers esports and sports betting, is in a phase of rapid growth having raised $16m Series A funding in February this year.
McMath joins the team after four and a half years at Luckbox, where he held the roles of Chief Editor and PR Manager and, latterly, Head of Communications.
McMath will work as part of the Growth team as Midnite aims to continue scaling its user base and revenues. The move reunites McMath with Sujoy Roy, Midnite’s Partnership Manager, with the two having previously worked together at Luckbox.
The appointment takes the number of Midnite employees to 56, with 35 new team members hired since January.
McMath said: “I’m delighted to have joined the team at what is an incredibly exciting time for Midnite as we look to continue to establish ourselves as a significant player in the esports and sports betting industry.
“I’m really looking forward to playing my part as we continue to grow, attracting new users and further enhancing our proprietary product.”
Midnite was founded in 2018 by Nicholas Wright and Daniel Qu, gaming industry product specialists who previously created Dribble, a daily fantasy sports platform. The team worked closely with Sky Bet, one of the largest operators in the UK, to launch the platform.
The company is currently licensed with the British Gambling Commission and is pending licensing approval with the Malta Gaming Authority.
Midnite co-founder Nick Wright said: “These are exciting times for our company and I am thrilled that we have been able to strengthen our team significantly as we aim to smash our growth goals for the year.
“I’m particularly pleased that we’ve been able to add talented individuals with rich experience in the gaming industry but also with passions for sports, esports and gaming.”
