Genius Sports Announces New Head of Integrity for Latin America, Tiago Horta Barbosa

Genius Sports Limited has appointed Tiago Horta Barbosa, an internationally renowned expert in the fight against match manipulation, as its new Head of Integrity for Latin America.
With over 20 years of experience in law enforcement, sports regulation, and technology, Tiago will play a crucial role in Genius Sports' integrity partnerships in Brazil and throughout Latin America.

Tiago's previous roles include being a Criminal Police Officer for Interpol and a Prosecutor for the Superior Sports Justice Tribunal (“STJD”) in football. He is an active member of the Integrity Committees of the São Paulo Football Federation (“FPF”), the International Table Tennis Federation (“ITTF”), and the Fair Play Defense Committee of the Brazilian Olympic Committee (“COB”).

In his new role, Tiago will lead Genius Sports' integrity strategy across Latin America, including conducting customized educational workshops for players, coaches, and officials, working with sports betting to enhance cooperation and information sharing practices, and driving new partnerships. Tiago will also support Genius Sports' position as a founding member of ABRADIE, helping to bring together key stakeholders to ensure Brazilian sports are fair, transparent, and unpredictable.

Genius Sports is the trusted integrity partner of the Brazilian National Basketball League, the Brazilian Volleyball Confederation, the National Futsal League, as well as the Argentine Football Association (AFA), Colombia Dimayor, Liga MX, DFB, PREMIER LEAGUE, and NFL.

“It is a privilege to join Genius Sports in the development of its integrity strategy,” Tiago said. “For over a decade, Genius Sports has worked with hundreds of leagues and federations to protect their competitions against match manipulation, and I look forward to helping build a clean and safe sports environment throughout Latin America.”

“I am thrilled with Tiago's appointment to this vital role, bringing critical expertise, knowledge, and relationships,” said Simon Martyn, Director of Integrity and Rights Enforcement at Genius Sports. “Following the recent regulation of sports betting, Brazilian sports are at a critical juncture where integrity must be prioritized to safeguard the long-term prosperity of the market. We are excited about Tiago leading our integrity strategy in Brazil and Latin America, working with sports, sports betting, law enforcement, and more across the region.”
