Greyhound racing operator SIS, has announced the appointment of Gordon Bissett as Operations Manager.

Bissett who has over 30 years’ experience in racing and betting, will also assist SIS in strategic and marketing matters as the Greyhound operator looks to broaden its sports reach and test out new racing concepts in the coming months.

Bissett commented on his appointment: “I start on January 5, and will be based in Milton Keynes but also in London and Manchester. SIS has great commitment to greyhound racing and the greyhound product, and it’s going to be interesting to see how we can develop the service.

Bissett added: “Having been at Nottingham on Tuesday for the Bags/SIS Track Championship gala, everyone was buzzing about the occasion and the climax, and it will be good to see how we can further progress the idea next year.”

George Irvine, MD Betting and International Operations at SIS, said: “We’re pleased to welcome Gordon to the team. His knowledge of the sport is exceptional, and we all see greyhound racing as developing further.
