Huddle hires Mitchard as VP of business development

Huddle has appointed Dylan Mitchard as its VP of business development.

Mitchard will be responsible for creating strategic business partnerships and driving new revenue streams globally, as Huddle continues its growth following investment from Las Vegas Sands and a merger with American odds specialist DeckPrism Sports.

He was hired in part thanks to his extensive experience in both the technology and iGaming industries, having started his career at GlobalData Plc as a business development executive before being promoted to global business development manager less than a year after his appointment.

This role was followed by more than three years as business development manager at Genius Sports and a year as head of business development – Virtual Sports at leading game provider Inspired Entertainment.

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 honoured 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.”

Dylan Mitchard added: “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.”
