Scott Leaves Entain VP Role to Return to Australia

Ben H / 11 April 2023

Former chief executive of Ladbrokes Australia, Jason Scott, has stepped down from his post as Entain Vice President of Trading, VIP and Retail Sportsbooks and will now return to his native Australia. Scott was appointed Entain Vice President in December 2019 and had to move to New Jersey for his new role.

Helped Turn Entain and BetMGM into Industry Giants

In a LinkedIn post, the former Ladbrokes trading director announced he was leaving the Entain/BetMGM family to return to Australia. Scott said he was leaving his VP duties at Entain “with a mix of sadness and happiness.”

He went on to say that the 11 years he spent at the company were “a fun ride” and that even though he played only a “small part” in the growth of Entain and BetMGM, he was happy that both evolved into two “fairly substantial entities.”

Had Special Praise for Adam Greenblatt

Scott, who used to be a racing bookie at Tatts Group, as well as a Humbleton racing analyst, said that there were a lot of people that he needed to thank but had to single out BetMGM chief executive Adam Greenblatt.

Scott said he met Greenblatt for the first time in 2013 when the Ladbrokes UK executive came to Australia to acquire, a small Australian bookie that grew to become “the Ladbrokes and Neds juggernaut.”

Scott helped establish and was appointed as CEO of Ladbrokes Australia after impressing with his leadership, vision and hard work.

For Scott, Greenblatt was easily the best leader “in any category anywhere on the globe.” He said that he was excited to see where the company would move under Greenblatt’s leadership over the next two years, but that he would “watch from afar.”
