Flutter Entertainment Appoints Mark Shaw as Global Payments Strategy Director

Flutter Entertainment has appointed Mark Shaw, a former Spotify executive, as its new director of global payments strategy. Shaw brings a wealth of experience from prominent roles at Spotify, TSB Bank, Visa Europe, and Vocalink. Additionally, he serves on the Bank of England’s CBDC technology forum.

Shaw’s extensive financial expertise will be instrumental as he oversees Flutter’s diverse portfolio of brands, including FanDuel, Paddy Power, Betfair, Sportsbet, Sisal, and PokerStars. Reflecting on his first month in the role, Shaw expressed excitement about working with Flutter’s “awesome local payment team” to “build out the future for payments across the group.”

In his LinkedIn statement, Shaw said, “It’s a big change from Spotify in so many ways, but new challenges and learning are the only constants in life, so it’s time to get stuck in and help ‘Change The Game.’”
