Given rapid growth in the marketplace, STATS,
the revolutionary leader in sports AI, announced the promotion of two
company leaders to vice president roles. Dennis Dougherty has been named
vice president of marketing and Brian Orefice as vice president of
global operations. The promotions recognize the hard work and
contributions of both individuals as STATS continues to innovate and
grow with its highest asset, its people.

Dougherty first joined STATS in 2015 as marketing communications manager
and the head of global demand generation. Over the years, he has
overseen projects spanning all areas of the division, including product
marketing, demand generation, go-to-market strategy, communications and
business development. In his new role, Dougherty will run point on all
marketing initiatives for STATS’ global brand.

“Dennis demonstrates all the aspects of an exceptional marketing leader,
including a deep understanding of our products, capabilities,
marketplace, competitive landscape and client’s needs,” said Steve
Xeller, STATS’ Chief Revenue Officer. “His ascension comes as no
surprise to his team or the clients who have worked with him over the
years. I look forward to seeing how Dennis will continue to elevate our
global brand and drive new opportunities for the company.”

Orefice first joined STATS in 2005 as director of news and operations,
expanding that role to head of production for the Americas in 2016. In
his new position, Orefice will serve in a cross-functional capacity to
generate operational efficiencies in STATS’ global production centers,
tracking processes and global goal setting.

“Brian’s contributions and achievements at STATS over the years are too
long to list in one place,” said Mike Perez, Chief Operating Officer at
STATS. “Like all great leaders, he has created a strong team around him
and manages by the numbers to drive production efficiencies and success
for our business. Under Brian’s management, STATS has created a
self-sustaining production system that provides the fast and accurate
information our clients expect. I know Brian will take STATS to new
heights as VP of global operations.”
