Next generation igaming technology developer Huddle has hired former Stars Group compliance manager Zeljka Perkovic as its new VP Compliance. She becomes the latest senior employee to join the rapidly growing startup from a large corporate entity.
Perkovic, who was at the Stars Group for more than a decade, joins numerous other new hires that have made the switch to the provider from suppliers and brands including Kambi, Entain, William Hill and others.
Francesco Borgosano, CEO and Co-founder, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Zeljka to Huddle. She brings great experience from her many years in the sector and will be a hugely valuable member of our growing team.
“We are attracting some serious talent at Huddle, with people drawn to the unique product capabilities and culture we are building, and I’m really looking forward to working with Zeljka and our many new senior hires.”
Perkovic added: “Huddle is building something really special, and I’m thrilled to join. The three founders and the wider team are experts in their fields and are developing very exciting products that will answer many pain points being felt across the betting and gaming industry through their over reliance on legacy systems.
“We clicked from the moment we had our first call and the passion and drive Francesco, Leo and Mario have is infectious. They are building a culture of empowerment, enabling everyone to push the boundaries towards a common purpose, and it’s a fantastic place to be.”
Huddle builds advanced, proprietary data-driven technology solutions and was launched in late 2020 by three former SimpleBet executives Francesco Borgosano, Leo Gaspar and Mario Zdelican.
Having raised $3m in venture capital seed funding, the business employs a micro services model – developing and deploying all the components of a fully automated betting platform – including trading, odds feeds and risk technology – in what it describes as “a sequenced way”.
