Nordic Leisure, hereinafter “NLAB”, “the company” or “the group”, hereby announces that the board of directors has appointed Robert Andersson as its new CEO and President. Robert joins the company from his role as CEO at Catena Media and replaces Peter Åström, who is switching to another role within the group with responsibility for business development.
Robert Andersson will take up his position as CEO and President at NLAB on 16 April.
Niklas Braathen, Chairman of NLAB, comments:
“Our work within NLAB in recent years has had a strong technical focus, and we now look forward to a period of upcoming product launches. From this it follows that the group is in need of an organisation which is more clearly focussed on sales and marketing. The board believes that Robert Andersson, whose commercial background lies entirely within digital operations, has precisely the right skills needed to take the group on to the next level, which will largely involve the commercialisation of the technology that we now possess.
Robert is also taking over the role of CEO for the subsidiary Lifland Gaming Group and therefore also direct operating responsibility for the group’s Online gaming business area. He has previously proven himself to be very competent in running growth companies, and we are convinced that he will take the company forward and, together with his colleagues, create an even stronger NLAB with a clear focus on shareholder value. We extend a warm welcome to Robert!
I would also like to thank Peter Åström for his efforts within NLAB. Peter has been the driving force behind the developments we have seen in recent years, and has commendably carried out a number of key structural deals which laid the foundations for the position we now find ourselves in. Peter will remain on NLAB’s board and continue to work within the group with a focus on business development”
Robert Andersson, incoming CEO and President of NLAB, comments:
“I am very impressed by the steps forward that Nordic Leisure have taken in recent years and by the company’s strategy for future growth. The group’s employees are clearly dedicated to the goal of further strong development and I very much look forward to contributing to the onward journey with added shareholder value as the key priority”
