Catena Media has appointed Per Hellberg, formerly of Nordic Gaming Group, as its new chief executive.
Hellberg will move into his new position no later than September 3, with acting chief Persson Ekdahl to return to his role as a board member at the company.
During his time as chief executive at Nordic Gaming Group, Hellberg completed the divestment of the company to Betsson.
Hellberg, who spoke with iGaming Business about his appointment, also spells as chief executive of Readly International AB and marketing director at Sony Corporation.
“Catena Media is a one-of-a-kind company with a compelling history, an almost unprecedented growth rate and vast potential,” Hellberg said.
“I am inspired by companies with a clear strategy for growth and by how I can further contribute to their success; I have spent a decade in that environment.
“This is a great opportunity to be able to continue the journey and to support Catena Media in its aggressive strategy for the future.”
Kathryn Moore Baker, chairman of the board at Catena Media, added: “We are very pleased to have reached an agreement with Per, who has a solid digital background and exceptional experience in leading global teams managing fast-paced growth.
“In previous assignments, he has demonstrated a strong capacity for successfully driving progress in transforming markets.”
