Hornsletten, a co-founder of EveryMatrix, will move into the new position on 1 February. He will be responsible for driving in-house development and third-party content partnerships.
A veteran of EveryMatrix, Hornsletten started out as CEO of the business when it launched in 2008. He also served as executive chairman and executive director before becoming CCO in November 2019.
Prior to joining EveryMatrix, Hornsletten co-founded BetonBet in January 2001.
“If it wasn’t for Stian there would not be an EveryMatrix and I’ll be forever grateful to him for asking me to join him for a drink to discuss the idea of starting this business together 15 years ago,” EveryMatrix group CEO Ebbe Groes said.
“He wanted to take on a new challenge within the business to grow our games offering. He has mine and all the company’s full support. I’m certain he will immediately take it to another level, bringing enormous energy, innovation and passion to the team.”
EveryMatrix added that it will announce a new CCO shortly.
