Spajic brings on board his extensive knowledge of the global and domestic online gaming industry. He holds educational qualifications from three distinguished universities, including:

  • SDA Bocconi School of Management in Italy
  • University of Neuchatel in Switzerland
  • De Montfort University in England

The new CEO at Betfred Casino in the United States also has a multi-disciplinary degree in law, management, and humanities.

Before joining the leading sports betting operator, Spajic had been involved in leadership and consultancy in several prestigious gambling firms in the United States and Canada. He has served in managerial positions in companies such as:

  • Great Canadian Entertainment
  • Apollo Global Management
  • Hard Rock International
  • Rush Street Interactive
  • Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and Bwin

This appointment is another testament to the company's commitment to expand in the US market. In January this year, Betfred received a license from the Nevada Gaming Control Board to offer its sportsbook services at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. A month later, the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Commission approved Betfred to launch its sports betting services in the state.

Fred Done, the founder of Betfred, declared that Kresimir Spajic was the right person to lead the company in the United States. He added that this is an essential and exhilarating period for Betfred's US enterprise, and Kresimir is the perfect individual to move forward and broaden the brand in America.

Joanne Whittaker, the Chief Executive of the Betfred Group, gave a warm reception to Spajic upon joining the company. She said:

“We are delighted with the appointment of Kresimir Spajic. Our team in the US have worked tirelessly to expand our operation and with Kresimir's vast experience, we have the right person to take our US business to the next level.”

On his part, the CEO expressed enthusiasm for his new position, exclaiming:

"I'm truly excited to embark on this journey as the CEO of Betfred USA. I am looking forward to working with our exceptional domestic and global talent and partners. Together, we aim to build a sustainable business in the US by delivering unparalleled value and support to our customers while upholding a strong commitment to responsible gaming."
