Denmark’s state-controlled gaming operator Danske Spil, has appointed Søren Skovdal Rasmussen as a chief financial officer.
Skovdal Rasmussen, who previously worked as chief executive of newsagent chain Kort & Godt A / S, will perform his new role on 1st November.
The vacancy of this post was opened in May, when Auning-Hansen acquired a position as a partner and chief financial officer at Joe & The Juice.
Before his position at Kort & Godt A / S., Skovdal Rasmussen had been chief financial officer and later deputy director of strategy at DSB.
“I was presented to several strong candidates who showed great interest in the position of CFO at Danske Spil,” Danske Speil chief executive, Susanne Mørch Koch, said.
“For the election of Søren Skovdal Rasmussen it was pivotal that he has a unique combination of strong financial and strategic experience combined with a deep insight into retail, including the turnover our products have in retail.”
He further added:
“It has long been a strong desire for me to work 100% again with numbers and finances. Therefore, I was not in doubt when I was given the opportunity to do this in Danske Spil. That I can then draw on my vast experience of working in retail and the commercial energy makes the match absolutely perfect.”
“I look forward to getting into the work and getting to know the company and its talented employees.”
Danske Spil sold its 60% stake in games developer CEGO to the studio’s original owners and the private equity fund Via Equity III, the previous month.
