Nigel Stocks is "excited" by his new role at SIS

Nigel Stocks, SIS’s new chief financial officer, wants to help the data services provider achieve the business success needed to secure further expansion.

Stocks joins SIS from global health firm Jatomi Fitness, which he helped to win new business and supported various international expansion initiatives from the company's base in Poland. He will replace Jeremy Rudd, who had been serving as chief financial officer at SIS on an interim basis.
Speaking to about his new role at SIS, Stocks said he is “impressed” with the company’s service offering and is looking forward to the “exciting” challenge ahead.

“Having researched SIS I was already aware of its history and prestige within the betting world, so I’m delighted to have been appointed,” Stocks said. “What has impressed me is that SIS is now evolving new products and services to extend its offering in the market and the future looks bright for the company.

“I'll be working closely with chief executive Gary Smith on SIS’s plans for the future. It's going to be an exciting challenge and I'll be bringing my international experience to ensure the company remains on its solid financial footing as it looks to expand even further."

SIS provides live racing, audio commentary and betting information on a number of sports to bookmakers across the world.

Speaking about Stocks’ appointment, chief executive Smith added:  “Nigel’s experience in contributing to strategic change and international expansion will be critical to SIS over the next two years as we bring new products and services to market.

“With cost pressures bearing down on the industry we need to ensure SIS is in rude financial health in the coming months.”
