Acroud strengthens board with Andersson & Strömberg

| By Conor Mulheir
Shareholders of Swedish affiliate business Acroud AB have proposed that Maria Grimaldi Andersson and Jonas Strömberg, who both work for Acroud shareholder Erik Selin Aktiehandel AB, be elected to Acroud’s board of directors.

Erik Selin Aktiehandel AB is an investment vehicle run by Swedish billionaire investor, Erik Selin.

According to Acroud, Jonas Strömberg currently works as investment manager for Erik Selin Aktiehandel and has held various senior positions with an emphasis on banking and finance during his career.

The business said that Maria Grimaldi Andersson, meanwhile, has extensive experience of running and building fast-growing entrepreneurial companies in the growth phase.

Andersson is currently chairman of the board of game developer Fall Damage Studio AB, as well as being a board member of esports community operator M.O.B.A Network AB, esports platform Esportal and Shortcut Media Group.

“It is a sign of strength for Acroud to be able to link such qualified people as Maria and Jonas to the company’s board,” said Robert Andersson, president and chief executive of Acroud.

“I look forward to developing the new Acroud together with them on our exciting journey ahead to create ‘The Mediahouse of the Future’”, he concluded.

Acroud, formerly Net Gaming, has undergone a broad strategy change since Robert Andersson took over as CEO in February 2020.

Last week, the company completed its latest acquisition, of Swedishsantas AB, which owns Swedish-facing tipster brand TheGamblingCabin. The deal saw Acroud buy 100% of the company’s shares for approximately SEK47.3m (£4.1m/€4.7m/$5.6m).
