FanDuel promotes CCO to chief legal officer
Online gaming company FanDuel Group has appointed Carolyn Renzin to the position of chief legal officer in addition to her existing role as chief compliance officer.
In her new role, Renzin oversees legal, risk, regulatory engagement, compliance and responsible gaming for the company.
Before joining FanDuel in 2019, she was an assistant general counsel at JPMorgan Chase & Co. In that position, she worked as a regulatory litigator following the financial crisis and in the office of the general counsel to help build out the bank’s legal function.
Renzin joined JPMorgan Chase in 2013 from compliance consulting and investigations firm Guidepost Solutions. In that role she advised companies under regulatory scrutiny on enhancing their compliance functions.
Before Guidepost, Renzin was a partner with law firm Stillman Friedman & Shechtman, where her practice focused on litigation and regulatory enforcement. She began her legal career as a clerk to the Hon Ronald Gould on the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and then as a litigation associate at Simpson Thacher & Bartlett.
Christian Genetski, president of FanDuel Group, says in a statement: ‘Carolyn is a passionate, bright, empathetic and extremely hard-working leader and colleague. In her time at FanDuel, she has led transformative change for our business in building out a regulatory and compliance function befitting the current and future scale of our company and I’m confident she is the right choice to lead our high-performing legal team going forward.’
