High Expectations from the New Appointment
As part of the Flutter Entertainment family, FanDuel Group aligns its sustainability efforts with the parent company's Positive Impact Plan, launched in February 2022.

With Kutler at the helm of the RG organization, FanDuel is set to further strengthen its commitment to these initiatives and promote responsible gaming practices within the industry.
