Catena Media appoints Daly as new chief executive

| By Robert Fletcher
Affiliate giant Catena Media has announced the appointment of Michael Daly as its new chief executive, with effect from 1 March.

Daly will replace Göran Blomberg, who had been serving as interim CEO since early January, following the departure of Per Hellberg.

Upon Daly taking on his new role, Blomberg will resume his position as chairman of the board, while Öystein Engebretsen, who had served as interim chairman, will return to being a board member.

Daly has been in charge of Catena Media’s US operations since April 2018, prior to which he held numerous positions within the igaming and the casino industry.

Among these roles was a spell as executive vice president of North America for GAN, as well as chief executive of Automated Cash Systems, and vice president of online gaming at SHFL Entertainment.

“It has been exciting working with Catena Media’s US growth engine these last few years,” Daly said. “And now the opportunity to work directly with all our global teams is even more exhilarating, as it is a much bigger growth engine.”

Blomberg added: “I have great trust and confidence in Michael as new CEO of the company. He is a true leader with a deep knowledge of the company as well as the business.

“His achievement in developing the US market speaks for itself and I am convinced he is the right person to take Catena into the next development phase.”
