Morten Brøgger has been tapped as the London-headquartered business aims to garner more corporate customers in new markets worldwide this year.

Previously CEO of telco solutions provider MACH before its sale to Syniverse in 2013, Brøgger will be based out of Huddle's secondary headquarters in San Francisco.

Current CEO and co-founder Alastair Mitchell is sticking around in his new roles as president and chief marketing officer. Mitchell will also focus to building and scaling Huddle's global brand and footprint.

With additional offices already in New York and Washington, Huddle secured itself another $51 million in venture capital funds after completing its Series D round in December.

At the time, Huddle said it planned to keep growing its geographical footprint in the United States and Europe while doubling the size of its product team.

Some of Huddle's most high-profile customers to date include Panasonic Europe, NASA, and 80 percent of central U.K. government departments.

Huddle updated its customer tally briefly in Thursday's announcement, boasting enterprise sales tripled over the first three quarters of 2014 compared to the same window in 2013, fueled by securing seven of its ten biggest contracts to date in that time frame.

Huddle unveiled a new secure publishing platform in August with a decked-out analytics dashboard aimed at these particular demographics.

Designed for collaboration among teams, the cloud-based collaboration and publishing platform can be accessed by users both within and outside a designated firewall.

The dashboard is still scheduled to go live early this year.
