Phumelela Gaming and Leisure Ltd announced the appointment of Colleen Goodman as CEO of Tellytrack on Tuesday.
Goodman takes over from Rob Scott, who was appointed Sports Betting Executive for Phumelela. Scott will remain executive head of Tellytrack, marketing and publishing as well.
A veteran of the media industry, Goodman has been deployed in various positions at Multichoice over the last 21 years.
“I literally grew up at Multichoice,” said Goodman after the announcement of her appointment. “I was fortunate enough to experience continuous growth throughout my career at Multichoice. It contributed to me improving my skills and being exposed to new challenges. After 21 years, however, it was time to move on.”
According to Goodman she was drawn to Phumelela because she sees Tellytrack as a major roleplayer in the media & betting industries.
“I am by no means a racing aficionado. But having spent my entire career in broadcasting and media, I see this as a role I can grow into, deploying my skills and knowledge in a different environment.”
Goodman will be responsible for Tellytrack as well as Phumelela Publishing.
She is also a person who believes in giving back to her community, and lectures Innovation and Consumer Behaviour at Vega, an advertising and marketing college, where she takes pride in coaching young entrepreneurs.
“What keeps me sane is the gym. And I meditate.
