DAZN restructures management, Shay Segev becomes sole CEO – Deadline

Sports streaming service DAZN has rejected its management structure, with Shay Segev becoming the sole CEO, and the appointment of a new CFO.

DAZN co-founder James Rushton, who had served as co-CEO, will step down from the position but remain in the company with his existing responsibility to monitor growth in local markets, rights and content.

Shay Segev first joined DAZN as co-CEO in June 2021, overseeing the growth of the gambling company Entain.

The streamer has also hired Darren Waterman, who joins as Group CFO based in London. He comes from Amazon, where he led the finance team in charge of Prime Video internationally. Incumbent CFO Stuart Epstein continues in his role as senior adviser and on the board.

Kevin Mayer, DAZN Group Chairman, said: “DAZN has become the global leader in sports streaming in just five years and it’s time to take this business to the next level. Shay’s technology background and unique history of delivering a strong performance culture will be hugely beneficial as DAZN introduces additional interactive fan engagement services such as betting and e-commerce that users can enjoy along with our core range of live sports streaming.James’ expertise in sports rights and deep understanding of the markets will ensure that DAZN continues to nurture and grow his core business.We thank Stuart for his many valuable contributions and look forward to his continued commitment to this new capacity and we are delighted to be part of such a strong talent as Darren Waterman.To be able to attract people of such high caliber is a testament to the strength of our business and our future. “
