Nikolina Gabelica joins the supplier after more than two decades with the Croatian Lottery across a series of senior roles
EveryMatrix has named former Croatian Lottery exec Nikolina Gabelica as the company’s new head of lottery.
Gabelica joins the supplier after more than 20 years at the Croatian Lottery across several stints and roles.
Most recently, Gabelica had a near-14-year uninterrupted spell with the operator, culminating in her role as director of business development and marketing.
The exec also previously served as the executive chair for the Marketing and Communications Working Group for the European Lotteries (EL).
In her new role with EveryMatrix, Gabelica will be responsible for leading commercial and product strategy for the World Lottery Association (WLA) and EL.
Gabelica will also look to build on the supplier’s recent success in the lottery vertical after partnering with the Hungarian National Lottery and Finland’s monopoly operator Veikkaus.
Touching on her appointment, Gabelica said: “I’m grateful for the warm welcome extended by the fantastic team here.
“My 20-plus years of lottery and gaming experience fits perfectly with EveryMatrix, offering a diverse perspective that I will use to focus on strategies for both existing and new WLA member organisations and lottery clients.”
Ebbe Groes, EveryMatrix CEO, added: “Nikolina is hugely respected in the lottery world with vast experience in the retail and digital requirements lotteries have today.
“We work with some of the most progressive WLA members today with a proven track record of delivering game-changing technologies that are taking these organisations to new heights. I’d like to wish Niki well as we strive to expand our reach even further in the lottery space.”
