Paul Liberman

Co-founder and President of DraftKings North America

Paul Liberman is President of Global Technology and Product. Liberman co-founded DraftKings in 2012 and maintains strategic leadership and global accountability for DraftKings’ technology platform, product, and IT functions. He has acted as CTO, CMO, and COO before moving into his current position as President, Global Technology and Product.

Liberman’s data-driven mindset has been instrumental in catapulting DraftKings from a small Boston start-up to a global sports-tech entertainment enterprise. Through his work in developing a flexible product suite, DraftKings was able to quickly expand its DFS product into states as the industry rapidly grew post-2016. Building from this same technology, after PASPA was overturned in 2018, Paul led the development, and rapid expansion, of DraftKings Sportsbook, which allowed the business to be among the first movers in new jurisdictions and to be operational in more states with a mobile sportsbook product than any other operator.

Under his direction, Paul’s team has developed award-winning, stand-alone apps and products including DraftKings’ Daily Fantasy Sports app as well the DraftKings Sportsbook and Casino products.

Moreover, Paul maintains a focus on DraftKings’ consumer protections and responsible gaming measures to ensure the company maintains high standards of integrity and player safety, and is continuously optimizing the protections in place in the best interest of its customers and community.

Liberman attended Worcester Polytechnic Institute where he received his degree in electrical engineering and computer science.
