Brown brings to Sportradar two decades of experience in risk management, as well as strategy development, business process evaluation and design and sports wagering risk mitigation. Based in the US, he will report to Andreas Krannich, managing director of integrity services.

For the past eight years Brown served in various risk management roles at the NCAA, most recently as the managing director of enterprise risk management. During his tenure, Brown was influential in leading the organisation’s approach to sports wagering risk mitigation.
