Kip Levin, CEO, TVG
Kip Levin was named CEO of Paddy Power Betfair’s U.S. operations, including the horse racing television channel and leading advanced-deposit wagering platform in May 2014, after serving in senior executive roles at Live Nation and Ticketmaster. He negotiated TVG’s $25 million acquisition of The Stronach Group’s HRTV in 2015, a move that consolidated the television rights for all major U.S. horse racing on the network. HRTV was relaunched later in 2015 as TVG2. Run as complementary networks, the combined channels now show more than 50,000 live races per year, 21,000 more than before the deal.
