Perkovic (pictured) started at The Stars Group in 2011, serving through the business’ acquisition by Flutter. She was appointed senior compliance manager in 2020.

“Huddle is building something really special, and I’m thrilled to join,” she said. “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.”

Software proivider Huddle was founded in 2020 by Francesco Borgosano, Leo Gaspar and Mario Zdelican – all of Simplebet – who raised $3m to power the supplier’s growth.

 “I’m delighted to welcome Zeljka to Huddle,” Borgosano said. “She brings great experience from her many years in the sector and will be a hugely valuable member of our growing team. 

Borgosano added that Perkovic is the latest Huddle hire to come from a big name within the industry, with others coming from businesses such as Kambi, Entain and William Hill.

“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.”
