Williams-Bradley commented: “I am thrilled to be joining Genius’ Board at such a pivotal moment for the industry, as the sports, betting and media sectors increasingly converge.
“Genius Sports continues to shape the direction of the industry and the use of official data, revolutionizing how sports leagues capture new revenue streams while delivering greater value and security for sports books and their customers.”

She is a highly regarded professional with a wealth of experience in the finance and sports media sectors, whose accomplished perspective will strengthen and diversify the Board’s decision-making capabilities.
