Online horseracing and wagering site YouBet.com has announced the appointment of former Ticketmaster executive David Goldberg to the post of Chief Operating Officer.
Goldberg most recently served as Executive Vice-President for Ticketmaster and oversaw the ticket ordering facility’s Global Music Services business and helped drive strategic business initiatives. In addition, he was one of three executives charged with overall leadership of the business through the office of the Chief Executive Officer and held global responsibility for all aspects of sales and marketing, mergers and acquisitions and business development.
“David brings a truly unique combination of live event as well as interactive media and e-commerce experience to both YouBet.com and the advanced deposit wagering space,” said Michael Brodsky, President and Chief Executive Officer for YouBet.com.
“That experience, coupled with his business development and operations skills, positions him well to be a leader on the YouBet.com team. I expect David to hit the ground running, taking a key role in internal operations and corporate strategy as well as working with our content partners to expand our relationships in a mutually beneficial way beyond the traditional advanced deposit wagering/track model.”
Goldberg also served as Marketing Director for Ticketmaster's Midwest region in the early 1990s before leaving to work as Executive Vice-President of Corporate Development for Sportvision, a sports technology and marketing company. He also co-founded and served as Executive Vice-President for Tunes.com and worked as Vice-President of Business Development for Jam Productions.
“I am thrilled to become part of the YouBet.com team,” said Goldberg.
“The company has taken large strides over the past year to shore up its core YouBet.com business and is now poised to leverage this platform in the advanced deposit wagering market and in new interactive initiatives.”
