Superbet Group has selected deputy chairman Jimmy Maymann to succeed Johnny Hartnett as its chief executive, effective January 15th. Hartnett, who has been CEO since August 2019, will transition to a non-executive director role on the Superbet Group board.
Hartnett previously held various leadership roles at Paddy Power Betfair and Sportsbet before joining Superbet. He expressed gratitude for his time as CEO and is confident in the company’s future under Maymann’s leadership.
Maymann, a former AOL executive, brings extensive leadership experience and a background in tech investment to his new role. He co-founded GoViral, an online video platform later acquired by AOL, and served as executive vice president of AOL’s content brands. Additionally, he was CEO of The Huffington Post, where he oversaw significant audience growth.
Maymann is eager to work with the board to position Superbet Group as a global leader in the tech and entertainment industry, all while maintaining a focus on responsible gaming practices. Sacha Dragic, Superbet founder and board member, expressed gratitude for Hartnett’s contributions and welcomed Maymann’s appointment as a sign of the company’s commitment to long-term global expansion.
The company is optimistic about the future, with Maymann’s appointment signaling a new phase of growth and development. Hartnett’s transition to the board and Maymann’s vision for the company ensure a seamless continuation of Superbet’s journey.
