DraftKings Announce Kalani As First Chief Responsible Gaming Officer

The objective for Kalani will be to help DraftKings with the improvement of player safety and protection schemes, which are present in several aspects of DraftKings’ sites.

Prior to this role at DK, Kalani worked as a partner to Cozen O’Connor, a well-respected law firm and she worked as a co-chair to the state attorneys general practice.

She was also a partner to another law firm, Dickstein Shapiro and had another major role, working as a senior counsel at global law business Orrick, Herrington and Sutcliffe.

Kalani has spoke about the impact DraftKings has made on the betting industry and how she plans to improve responsible gaming.

She said: “I have long admired DraftKings’ impact as an entertainment and engagement platform that brings a community of gaming enthusiasts together,

“Joining DraftKings represents an exciting opportunity for me to bolster the efforts of the company and look for opportunities to reinforce our responsible gaming initiatives.

“I am eager to partner with colleagues, regulators, industry leaders and community advocates to further demonstrate DraftKings’ commitment to responsible gaming and promote a healthy gaming environment for all customers.”

Additionally, CEO and co-founder of DraftKings, Jason Robins, has stated that the improvement of responsible gaming is high on DK’s priorities.

He said: “Responsible gaming is one of our top priorities. It is a core part of our mission to build games that our customers can enjoy responsibly.

“In this leadership role, Lori will further advance our responsible gaming initiatives and uphold our commitment to setting new industry standards.”

Kalani is not the only new addition to Draft Kings’ core employee’s, making a multitude of changes during March and re-directing the businesses goals.

DraftKings made a huge switch, handing Jason Park the role of first chief transformation officer, ending his time as CFO – which he began in June 2019.
