Simon Trim appointed Managing Director of Sporting Solutions

Simon Trim, Trading Director at Sporting Index since 2006, has been promoted to Managing Director of Sporting Solutions, the B2B trading services division of the Sporting Index Group.

Trim was instrumental in implementing the original Sporting Solutions concept and has played an integral part in taking the product offering forward. Sporting Solutions has quickly established itself as the pre-eminent provider of trading and pricing services to the betting and gaming industry, enabling bookmakers to outsource their in-play betting on 22 sports.

Sporting Solutions already supplies 10 sportsbooks, including William Hill, ToteSport, Skybet, Centrebet, Blue Square and Party Gaming. Sporting Index was Sporting Solutions’ first customer.

Warren Murphy, CEO, Sporting Index Group, comments: “Simon has led our trading team with distinction for five years and has been a key member of the team behind the early success of Sporting Solutions. The rapid growth of our B2B business has been driven by our unique pairing of sports trading expertise with technology and no-one is better placed to take the business forward than Simon.”

Simon Trim, Managing Director, Sporting Solutions, adds: “Over the past five years Sporting Solutions has built up an unrivalled B2B in-play service by leveraging the incumbent strength of the Sporting Index trading floor.

“Our rapidly expanding partner list is testament to both the product and service that we provide and I’m delighted to be taking up a role that will provide additional B2B focus within the Group.

“My goal is to establish Sporting Solutions as the pre-eminent B2B supplier of choice. With the developments we have coming over the next few months I’m confident that our partners will receive a coverage of markets, quality of pricing and margin generation that is unsurpassed elsewhere.”
