(PRESS RELEASE) -- Rush Street Interactive, Inc., a leading online casino and sports betting company in the U.S., today announced the appointment of Bruce Caughill as Managing Director, Canada. Mr. Caughill joined RSI on 28 March 2022, prior to RSI’s planned launch of its award-winning BetRivers online casino and sportsbook in Ontario on 4 April, the first day of authorized online gaming in the province.

Mr. Caughill joins RSI from his role as Chief Legal Officer at the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario, where he oversaw all legal matters and played a key role in developing the legislative and policy infrastructure for Canada’s first legal regulated iGaming industry.

As the Managing Director of RSI’s Canadian team, Mr. Caughill will provide leadership and support in the commercial and administrative activities associated with the company’s pursuit of business opportunities in the country.

“We welcome Bruce who, with his unparalleled legal, operational and regulatory expertise in Canada’s gaming industry, will provide strong insight, guidance and counsel in this exciting new online market,” said Richard Schwartz, Chief Executive Officer of RSI. “Bruce’s proven leadership capability, extensive experience and strategic thinking make him a great addition to RSI.”

Mr. Caughill has over two decades of broad, sophisticated experience in Canada’s commercial gaming industry. Prior to the AGCO, he was CEO/President of Caughill Management Consulting, providing strategic counsel and regulatory advice to international gaming companies. Before that, Caughill served for more than twenty years as Vice President/General Counsel, Corporate Secretary and Chief Compliance Officer at Falls Management Company, operator of the Niagara Casinos, Canada’s largest integrated casino resort operation.

“I am excited to bring my years of experience in Canadian gaming to support RSI’s pursuit of opportunities in Canada,” said Mr. Caughill, a native of Ontario. “I am particularly excited at the prospect of supporting the many local Canadian employees as the company establishes its Innovation Hub here.”

A long-time member of the International Association of Gaming Advisors, Mr. Caughill also serves as an independent member of the Internal Audit and Compliance Committees of the Rush Street Gaming affiliated casinos. He attended Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, before earning his law degree from the University of Western Ontario.
