On 17 May, the Swedish government decided that it would extend Rosenberg’s appointment at Spelinspektionen until 31 October 2026.
Rosenberg was first appointed as director general of the then-named Lotteriinspektionen in October 2017, having been named acting director general in April that year.
Lotteriinspektionen became Spelinspektionen in 2019, following the re-regulation of the Swedish market.
“It feels good to be able to continue working on launching the various parts of the reform and taking the continued important steps for a well-functioning Swedish gambling market,” said Rosenberg.
Rosenberg held various managerial positions, including chief legal officer, at Swedish Energy Agency before joining the Lottery Inspectorate in 2015 as head of operations with responsibility for licensing and supervisory activities.
Last week, Spelinspektionen came into new regulatory powers, which are designed help it combat illegal gambling in the industry. Payment providers will be required to submit certain information to Spelinspektionen. This includes details on whether their systems are being used to process payments to and from unlicensed operators in Sweden.
It was also announced that Spelinspektionen would receive an increased grant to help strengthen its activities against illegal gambling.
