FSB Expands Senior Management Ahead Of US Market Entrance

In anticipation of its imminent entrance into the US market with the appointments of Larry Pelzer and Mike Van Ermen, sports betting and igaming technology provider FSB has expanded its senior management team.

Bringing tremendous experience

Pelzer, who joins as VP of Sales for North America, brings with him tremendous experience in the gambling industry, having held senior sales positions over what FSB described as “a distinguished 17-year career” in a variety of organizations.

He worked for the real-money mobile gaming site start-up Playport Gaming prior to joining FSB and spent two years at Scientific Games.

Pelzer will be headquartered in the US and will be responsible for driving brand recognition and delivering the full range of retail and online betting products and services to North American operators within the next few months.

As Vice President of Pre-Sales, Van Ermen joins the organization and will be tasked with finding potential partners by leveraging his deep operating experience. Van Ermen was the Strategic Operations Manager at Circa Sports before joining FSB.

Just weeks after the announcement of ex-Kambi CCO Ian Freeman as Chief Revenue Officer and former Resorts Digital Gaming Director Bob Akeret as Vice President of Operations, North America, the recruitment of Pelzer and Van Ermen is coming.

What was said…

Dave McDowell, FSB’s CEO, stated: “I am delighted to welcome Larry and Mike to the team and for them to play a central role in our plans to enter the North American market. This is a big year for FSB and our in-house talent continues to get stronger.”

Pelzer, reflecting on his new position, said: “I am honoured to be joining FSB at what is an incredibly exciting and pivotal time for the business as it gets ready to enter the North American market.

Van Ermen added: “I would not have left my previous job if I didn’t see the massive potential and opportunity presented by FSB. From top to bottom, this company has what it takes to be a true market disruptor.
