Simon Johnson joins SIS as new Chair

Simon Johnson, the current Chair of the Rugby Football League, has been selected as the new Chair of SIS (Sports Information Services).

Johnson will bring with him a wealth of senior leadership experience to the position, which SIS believes will help strengthen the supplier’s position within the global betting industry.

Richard Ames, CEO of SIS, said: “The appointment of Simon is most welcome and follows the successful globalisation of SIS in recent years.

“Simon has extensive experience in working for some of the leisure industry’s biggest bodies and his leadership qualities will prove invaluable to SIS. We are now in an even stronger position to build on our recent momentum and further grow the company’s position within the global betting industry.”

Prior to joining SIS, Johnson served as the Director of Corporate Affairs and Company Secretary at the Football Association, as well as Chief Operating Officer for England’s 2018 World Cup bid.

He has also been CEO of Business in Sport & Leisure, the Director of Rights & Business Affairs at ITV, and, for the most recent seven years, Chief Executive of The Jewish Leadership Council.

Johnson commented: “I’m very pleased to be joining SIS, one of the industry’s most recognisable and trusted brands.

SIS has made great strides in extending its presence around the world through quality and engaging products. I’m looking forward to drawing upon my experience and working with Richard and the team to help build upon this success.”
