Irish bookmaker Boylesports has appointed Mark Kemp as its new CEO.
He will replace Conor Gray, who will be appointed commercial director, focused on continuing to expand Boylesports in Ireland, Britain and further afield, the group said.
Mr Kemp has been manager of the British racecourses pool betting system, the UK Tote, since 2019. Before joining UK Tote, he was the managing director of Ladbrokes Coral.
John Boyle, founder and chairman of BoyleSports, welcomed Mr Kemp to the group.
“There are few people within the industry with Mark’s digital leadership expertise, which is a critical channel of growth for BoyleSports,” he said.
He thanked Mr Gray for his work as chief executive over the last five years, during which he added 150 betting shops and doubled the size of digital business.
Mr Kemp said his appointment as Boylesports chief executive gave him an opportunity to lead an already strong business with its own technology and experienced teams.
