David Yatom to spearhead Soft2Bet compliance as General Counsel

Soft2Bet has moved to bolster its oversight of compliance, legal and regulatory activities, appointing David Yatom as General Counsel.

Yatom will lead the group’s initiatives in these areas, with a focus on coordinating an expansion strategy on existing and emerging regulated markets, tying in with the firm’s corporate and commercial targets.

The new hire brings previous experience in this field, having worked as General Counsel for SBTech, before taking on Senior Director of Legal responsibility at DraftKings, after the US firm integrated the former along with Diamond Eagle Acquisition.

Uri Poliavich, CEO of Soft2Bet, remarked: “We deeply value David Yatom’s substantial experience and believe he will provide exceptional guidance and insights that will enhance our existing legal advisory services. He understands the core values of Soft2Bet and will lead our presence in the industry.”

Soft2Bet has highlighted Yatom’s experience in both private and in-house legal affairs, including the aforementioned tenures in betting and igaming, as being particularly beneficial to the firm and its growth strategy.

His appointment comes a month after the firm took another step in its expansion plans, launching the ReferOn affiliate management system.

Speaking to SBC News last year shortly after his own appointment to the firm’s leadership, Head of Sportsbook Ed Clark discussed Soft2Bet’s growth ambitions in Sweden, Ireland and the US.

Yatom remarked: “I am excited to join Soft2Bet. During its relatively short time of operation, Soft2Bet managed to position itself as a key player in the online gambling industry. 

“The company has an amazing group of professional, enthusiastic and dedicated individuals that give Soft2Bet capability and potential to become one of the most significant players in the online gaming industry. 

“I strongly believe in the company’s unique product, technology and innovative capability. Soft2Bet has a highly capable and dynamic management team and I very much look forward to working with them to jointly accomplish Soft2Bet’s long term strategic goals.”
