Igaming tech provider Huddle has confirmed the appointment of Dylan Mitchard as its VP of Business Development, responsible for creating strategic business partnerships and driving new global revenue streams.
It comes during a period of transition and growth potential for Huddle, which recently merged with American odds firm DeckPrism Sports and received investment from Las Vegas Sands.
Leading Huddle’s business activities, Mitchard was hired due to his ‘extensive experience in both the technology and igaming industries’.
He began his career at GlobalData Plc as a Business Development Executive and was subsequently promoted to Global Business Development Manager in under a year.
Following this, he spent over three years as a Business Development Manager at Genius Sports before heading to Inspired as Head of Business Development – Virtual Sports.
On his new role, Mitchard stated: “I’m excited to join Huddle and I’m looking forward to my new role. With the recent merger with DeckPrism Sports and the financial backing of Las Vegas Sands, it is clear that Huddle has developed a market-leading trading product, which is already being used by tier 1 operators.
“I am looking forward to implementing a strategy to help drive the business forward and further understand the demands of sportsbook operators worldwide, to help shape and build a world-class trading and risk solution.”
Huddle was launched in 2020 and offers trading, odds feeds and risk technology to help ‘unlock the true potential of igaming operators’.
Using AI and machine learning tools to analyze behavioral data, Huddle aims to help operators increase efficiency and optimize operational risk.
Leo Gaspar, Chief Business Development Officer, Huddle, said: “We at Huddle are really excited about Dylan joining us as VP of Business Development. Dylan has extensive industry expertise and deep knowledge of the whole ecosystem and its complexity. More importantly, we see him as a great cultural fit.
“I am honored that he will be working alongside me in building our business development vertical from the ground up. We wish Dylan all the best in his new role.”
