On Mayer’s work at the company, DAZN CEO, Shay Segev, said: “Kevin has been a fantastic support and counsel during a period of rapid transformation for the business.”

“I am personally grateful for his invaluable contribution and speak for all DAZN management when I wish him the very best in his other endeavours.
