Stats Perform has appointed former Sky Betting & Gaming technology veteran Nick Cockerill as its new Group VP of Sports Betting Products.
Cockerill joined Stats Perform this February to head up the betting innovation arm of Stats Perform, for which the sports tech company seeks to merge its data capture, sports analysis and media capabilities to develop new ground-breaking products for its betting-related clients.
Stats Perform branded Cockerill as a key appointment to lead the strategic development of its betting innovation unit, as the executive had worked on all core Sky Bet projects during his seven-year tenure with Sky Betting & Gaming.
As former Head of Technology for Sky Bet, Cockerill led the engineering and development of the online bookmaker’s proprietary sports betting systems, recognised amongst the industry’s most sophisticated technology platforms.
Prior to leaving Sky Bet, Cockerill had led the sportsbook development for merger partner The Stars Group Inc, helping launch its revamped sportsbook within new regulated markets.
“After 7+ incredible years at Sky Betting and Gaming/Stars Group/Flutter I can’t wait to start tomorrow at Stats Perform,” Cockerill announced on Linkedin.
“Everyone I’ve spoken to over the last couple of months has been so passionate about what we’re doing it’s hard not to be excited about our work to leverage AI and machine learning to deliver some brilliant new products and services to clients (and future clients!) and their customers.”
