PointsBet, an international online gaming operator, has appointed Nic Sulsky as Chief Commercial Officer for their Canadian operations. The appointment will come into effect from tomorrow. The appointment is a significant move by the company, because the Canadian Senate is currently gearing up to pas a bill that would legalize single-event sports betting.

Sulsky is vastly experienced in gaming and is a native of Toronto. He has held the position of president of Monkey Knife Fight and founded InGamer.

Nic Sulsky said:

“I’m thrilled to be joining PointsBet. This is an international company embracing what it means to be Canadian, and its commitment to providing a made-in-Canada platform for Canadian fans was the deciding factor for me in taking on this role. Now that the legalization of single-game sports betting is close to final approval by the federal government, I’m looking forward to launching a truly Canadian platform that will not only provide good jobs in an exciting industry, but also offer Canadian fans an entertaining and engaging experience like no other.”

Johnny Aitken, PointsBet USA CEO, added:

“PointsBet is excited to welcome Nic to the team, adding strong talent that knows how to build first-class gaming brands while possessing a deep understanding of the Canadian landscape. With legislation now before the Canadian Senate, our hope is that this will be the first of many Canadian hires as we work to ensure our Canadian leadership team both understands and reflects the unique characteristics of the Canadian sports environment and its millions of loyal fans.”
