Kenneth J Kay, former chief financial officer at MGM Holdings, will be appointed as chair of Genius Sports’ Board, leading the board’s oversight of Genius Sports’ operations and strategy.

Kay has served as an independent director of the board since March 2023, and has already made a considerable contribution to its collective capabilities. He will take up the position of chair from David Levy, currently co-CEO of Horizon Sports and Experiences and former president at Turner Broadcasting. As one of the most respected figures in the global sports industry, David will remain as a strategic advisor to Genius Sports.

Claire Valoti, co-founder of Haylo Ventures and former vice president, international at Snap, will be appointed as an independent director. Claire’s executive experience in data-driven companies entails a strong focus on digital, mobile, and consumer experience.

Mark Locke, CEO of Genius Sports, said: “I am thrilled to welcome the appointment of Ken Kay as our chair and Claire Valoti as a director. Their expertise and vision will be instrumental in driving the next phase of Genius Sports’ growth.

“I also want to extend my gratitude to David Levy for his service as chair since April 2021. I am pleased that David will continue to stay close to Genius Sports in an advisory capacity.”
