Esports betting and entertainment company Esports Entertainment Group (EEG) has announced the appointment of Kaitesi Munroe to its Board of Directors. Her appointment will bring the Board’s size to eight members.
Monroe will fulfill the role of independent director that is required by law in the United States, and bring experience in administrative roles in private and public sectors.
Munroe comes to EEG having served as a Principal at Cozen O’Connor Public strategies since 2021. She also worked at the Madison Square Garden Company from 2019 to 2021 and held a position as a legislative analyst for the New York State Assembly. It was there that she worked on the legislation that helped implement daily fantasy sports in the New York state.
Grant Johnson, Chairman, and CEO of Esports Entertainment Group, commented: “We are excited to further strengthen and diversify our Board of Directors through the appointment of Kaitesi Munroe, and I am delighted to welcome her to the Company.
“Her extensive knowledge and experience with legislative matters and government affairs will be of critical importance as we expand our iGaming footprint and establish ourselves as the leading provider of technology solutions to the fast-growing and exciting world of real money esports wagering.”
Esports Entertainment Group has appointed two new team members to executive positions recently. In January, Stuart Tilly joined the company as its new COO, and Damian Mathews joined as Chief Financial Officer in March. The company has also secured a gambling licence in New Jersey and recently partnered with live odds company Oddin.gg to improve its offerings in the United States.
Esports Insider says: EEG finished 2021 with a sizeable GAAP loss, one it is likely looking to close as it improves revenue generation on all fronts. This includes cooperating with the likes of Oddin, and also hiring experienced executives for leadership positions.
