29 March 2023

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Fanatics Betting and Gaming today announced the appointment of Hank Couture to the new position of Chief Operating Officer (COO).

Reporting to Fanatics Betting & Gaming CEO Matt King, Couture will be a member of the FBG executive team and play an integral role in developing strategies across operations as the Fanatics Sportsbook is poised to launch nationwide in mid-2023.

“We are excited to add Hank to our leadership team as COO,” said Matt King, CEO of Fanatics Betting and Gaming. “Hank’s experience in building one of the largest marketplaces in the U.S. is exactly the type of person we are looking for at Fanatics Betting and Gaming, and as our new COO, his impressive track record of success will provide us with valuable insight as we build a sportsbook that is easy to use, trustworthy and more rewarding for sports fans.”

Couture’s time at DoorDash, a technology company that connects consumers with their favorite local businesses in 27 countries across the globe, will serve him well in accelerating the growth of Fanatics Betting and Gaming. At DoorDash, he oversaw the company’s U.S. Marketplace, including many critical building blocks to the company’s success including pricing, loyalty/subscription, promotions, merchandising and growth.

“This is an exciting opportunity to build something from the ground up,” said Couture, COO of Fanatics Betting and Gaming. “I look forward to bringing my knowledge and experience in building DoorDash to the sports betting industry and help build something that exceeds expectations for our customers.”

At DoorDash, Couture most-recently served on the executive management team as a Vice President, overseeing the company’s U.S. Marketplace. Couture joined DoorDash in 2016 and helped grow the e-commerce marketplace into an industry leader. As an early employee, he oversaw DoorDash’s Chicago operations. He then led the company's expansion across the Midwest that helped define the company's suburban growth strategy. While leading the U.S. Marketplace, Couture oversaw the $50 billion marketplace and many critical business lines, such as DoorDash’s subscription program, DashPass, and the Caviar marketplace.

Prior to DoorDash, Couture honed his skills at Goldman Sachs where he worked on the equity trading floor in Derivatives Structuring.
