Tobias Fagerlund has stepped down as the CEO of Global Gaming with immediate effect. The Board has appointed Board member Christian Rasmussen as Acting CEO.
Tobias was appointed as the acting CEO of Global Gaming on 29 April 2019 and has been the permanent CEO of the company since 2 July 2019.
“It is my opinion that Tobias during his time as CEO led Global Gaming in a very meritorious way. Tobias has implemented a large package of restructuring measures and shown evidence of a strong and clear leadership that was absolutely necessary for the company. Tobias has thus with great success laid a good foundation for Global Gaming’s future operations. Now, however, the company is facing a new phase and we have identified a number of measures necessary to further strengthen the company’s position. The CEO has worked from Stockholm, where he has been the company’s only employee, and there is a need for leadership to operate where our operating units are allocated, in Estonia and Malta,” Niklas Braathen, Chairman of the Board of Global Gaming, said.
“On behalf of the board and the company, I would like to thank Tobias for his work, and would like to point out that during the time I have been chairman of the board, we have had a very good collaboration and that I look forward to continuing in various forms,” Niklas Braathen added.
