LeoVegas hands top financial role to Nelson
LeoVegas has appointed Stefan Nelson as its new chief financial officer.
Nelson will take on his new role from August 22, when Viktor Fritzén moves to his new position as senior advisor.
Currently a director at SEB Corporate Finance, Nelson has spent almost 20 years working in the finance sector and has served as an equity analyst for the gaming sector.
Nelson also led the LeoVegas initial public offering (IPO) while at SEB in 2016.
“I think it will be incredibly stimulating to start working at LeoVegas, which is one of the fastest growing companies on the Stockholm Stock Exchange,” Nelson said.
“LeoVegas has impressively achieved a leading position in a large and fast-moving industry that is still in an early development phase.
“I am deeply impressed by the company’s unique corporate culture, which is perhaps the most important explanation for its success.”
Gustaf Hagman, chief executive LeoVegas Mobile Gaming Group, added: “With his deep expertise in finance and a sense of both the business and the gaming industry, combined with having been Sweden’s most renowned gaming analyst, Stefan will be an addition to the management team and my right hand.
“Stefan’s broad and deep knowledge within M&A will also be an asset to us in the future.”
