On 25th April, just one day after Therese Hillman well-received interim report conference, the board of NetEnt announced more changes! Indeed, as you’re probably aware NetEnt is undergoing major re-structure at the moment. This is because they’ve recently dismissed their six years CEO, Per Eriksson. And even more so now, since the long-term Chairman of the board, Vigo Carlund decided to step down for personal reasons.
Following the news, Vigo Carlund added.
“During my two board tenures, I have been part of the Board of NetEnt for a total of 15 years. 11 of which as Chairman. Due to personal reasons not related to the Company. I have now decided to leave the Board.”
NetEnt announced a suitable replacement!
Fredrik Erbing, is currently a member of the board and he was put forward for the new role. In fact, it was probably an easy vote for the board since Fredrick is a successful and long-term board member. After all, Erbing sure has the experience NetEnt needs since he’s been on the board for as long as Vigo. Moreover, Erbing is also the VP of a Swedish technology company. Which will more than likely coincide well with NetEnt’s pioneer vision!
Vigo Carlund later responded when asked to comment about his replacement.
“Fredrik Erbing has great knowledge about the sector and NetEnt. Additionally, he has played an important role in NetEnt’s development during his time at the Board. Consequently, this makes him suitable as Chairman of the Board of NetEnt.”
Given Erbing stellar reputation. And the latest game releases that are already very successful in online casinos NJ. There’s no doubt the shares will go up! Especially after Therese Hillman confirmed NetEnt’s interest in regulated markets like NJ and PA. And given the fact that Erbing is the 4th largest shareholder of the company, he probably won’t mind either!
