Following the restructure and the integration of the retail divisions of Phumelela and Betting World announced last year, the board of Betting World has approved the appointment of Vee Moodley as Acting Chief Executive Officer for the betting chain, effective immediately.
The appointment is in addition to Moodley’s other responsibilities of Executive Director – Sports Betting for Phumelela and Kenilworth Racing.
Moodley’s association with the industry has been long and successful and Phumelela CEO Rian du Plessis said: “I have no doubt that his strong leadership qualities, financial background and excellent knowledge of both horseracing and betting will once again stand him in good stead with his added responsibilities.”
Two other appointments have been made at Betting World – Freda Moloi as Company Secretary and Mervyn Govender as director in charge of information technology. Both joined the group earlier this year and their appointments are effective immediately.
The Betting World senior management team is as follows:
Michael Weare: Executive – Fixed Odds Betting:

In addition he will be responsible for the legal compliance and management of all regional entities created in partnership with other shareholders. Madondo will report to the Phumelela executive director responsible for business development and risk management.
Marc Joubert: General Manager – Information Technology:
Joubert will continue in his role as head of IT support for Betting World, focusing on online internet betting clients, retail operations as well as management of Cerino, Betting World’s software development company. He will report to the Group CIO.
