Sports and media technology firm Genius Sports has announced a restructuring of its board of directors.

Kenneth J. Kay, an experienced sports industry executive, will become the board’s chair, with the current incumbent of that role, David Levy, moving to a position as a strategic advisor to Genius. These changes are effective as of this month.

Levy was first appointed as chair in April 2021.

He has been working as an independent director since March last year.

Claire Valoti, meanwhile, is set to come on board as a new independent director. She is a former vice president of international at Snap.
