Betsson AB appoints new CEO

By Robert Simmons
Swedish online gaming specialists Betsson AB have confirmed the appointment of Jesper Svensson to the position of CEO of Betsson's operational subsidiaries.

Svensson, who has been with the Betsson group since 2013, has served as acting CEO of Betsson's subsidiaries since September 2017 after the sudden departure of Ulrik Bengtsson forced a reshuffle of the senior management team.

In a statement, Pontus Lindwall, CEO of Betsson AB said: "Jesper has extensive experience from the gaming industry and the passion and skills needed to lead Betsson's gaming operations. I look forward to working with Jesper and his team."

Jesper Svensson, CEO of Betsson's operational subsidiaries added: "The team and I have many opportunities and also challenges ahead. We have already made improvements to our ways of working in order to better leverage on the multi-brand model and the single platform."

Betsson's operational headquarters are in Malta, but the business is operated from 12 locations by 1,900 people of 50 different nationalities.
