Chief executive officer, Europe
If Flutter CEO Peter Jackson is the public face of Flutter, European CEO Daniel Taylor is the man that makes sure the public statements can be backed up by successful operations.
One of Jackson’s first moves after stepping from the board to the chief executive’s office was to appoint Taylor as CEO for all of Paddy Power and Betfair’s operations aside from the US and Australia. It might well be the best decision he has made.
Taylor now has the almighty job of integrating The Stars Group and Sky Betting & Gaming into Flutter’s enviable portfolio of brands. How he manages this task will define the next five years of his career.
When Jackson eventually moves on, as surely he will, you can be almost certain that Taylor will inherit the top job.
