Spotlight Sports Group (SSG) has revealed that its Senior Vice President of B2B Partnerships, Rick Wolf, will be retiring at the end of 2023.
Wolf joined the technology, content, and media company specialising in sports betting and fantasy sports in September of last year, alongside the acquisition of The Alarm Sports Network, where he had spent the previous decade as President.
Sam Houlding, SSG’s Chief Commercial Officer, commented: “Rick has been a vital part of our leadership team since joining us more than two years ago and he will be deeply missed, but we all wish him well on a very well deserved retirement after a brilliant career. 
“His unmatchable knowledge and expertise within the sports betting and fantasy sports landscape allowed us to further scale our B2B efforts and build a brand awareness of SSG in the US that would not have been possible without him.”

The group also praised the VP’s expertise within the US market which proved ‘invaluable’ to its US B2B expansion, from his previous position as a founding board member and Hall-Of-Famer of the Fantasy Sports & Gaming Association (FSGA).
Also named an ‘integral part’ of SSG, Wolf has reportedly formed relationships with Matthew Berry’s Fantasy Life, NBC Sports, Advanced Local and PointsBet Canada, among others.
Speaking of his retirement, Wolf added: “I have been living and breathing fantasy sports and sports betting for my entire career. It is my life’s work and I will always be a part of this industry.”
In previous roles, Wolf served in various leadership capacities for the FSGA, CBS Sports, Rotoworld.com, NBC Sports and The Alarm Sports Network where he built sports destinations through technology, content and his ‘deep contact base’.
“It was my honour to help grow fantasy sports interest before its popularity became widespread and to help the great people at SSG grow during the explosion of the US sports betting market in the last few years,” Wolf continued.
Following his departure from SSG, Wolf will continue his work within the fantasy sports and sports betting space including as a Board Member of the FSGA and as an advisor to companies within the space, including SSG.
