Interview with Keith Wachtel CBO for the National Hockey League

Sightline sat down in a recent interview with Keith Wachtel the Chief Business Officer for the National Hockey League (NHL). The NHL was the first league to partner with a number of Sightline Payments customers including William Hill, MGM Resorts International, and FanDuel. There will be more fandom — which will create new business opportunities for the NHL and for the operators! Keith is responsible for day-to-day leadership and management of all revenue-generating initiatives for the NHL and has been a key contributor to the League’s path to more than $4.5 billion in annual revenues. He leads all global corporate partnership efforts for the NHL and assumes P&L responsibility across numerous business areas. Since joining the NHL in 2007, Keith has driven more than $1 billion in revenue to the League and member Clubs, negotiating more than 40 League partners across North America and globally including MGM Resorts International, FanDuel, Apple and SAP. Thank you to Sightline and CEO Kirk Sanford for sponsoring this video.
