NYRA appoints chief of account wagering


The New York Racing Association has hired Andrew DiNovo for its newly created position as director of account wagering.

DiNovo, 46, will develop, implement and oversee all aspects of NYRA's account wagering programs, including its telephone, online, mobile, and ontrack platforms, along with customer acquisition, development and analysis for NYRA Rewards.

DiNovo, a native of Albany, N.Y. comes to NYRA from Capital District Off-Track Betting Corp. where he was most recently the director of sales and marketing. Before that, DiNovo led the commercial services division of Time Warner Cable in Albany.

"I am extremely excited to join NYRA and be a part of the best Thoroughbred racing in the country, if not the world," DiNovo said. "NYRA is taking great strides as a leader in quality of services and with the creation of this position, demonstrates its commitment to future technologies."
