Sportech announces reshuffle of Bump 50:50 team
Betting technology supplier Sportech has announced a number of changes to the senior team at its Bump 50:50 charitable raffle division, including the appointment of Dave Kurland as its new president.
Kurland joined Bump in 2011 as its director of business development, a role in which he helped the business grow one client in 2011 to over 120.
Prior to joining Bump, Kurland spent 22 years leading the community relations department and team foundation for NBA franchise the Chicago Bulls, where he helped develop the first 50/50 raffle for a professional US sports team.
Meanwhile, Dennis Sampier has been named as vice present of the Bump non-profit division, where he will spearhead the expansion of its non-sports related charity clients.
Sampier also has a background in the NBA, having spent 20 years at the Detroit Pistons, heading up the team’s social responsibility platform.
