NetEnt Chief Operating Officer leaves

NetEnt Chief Operating Officer Bjorn Krantz left the company after more than ten years.

Krantz joined the company in 2009 and has had a number of roles including serving as managing director of its Malta business. He led the US expansion efforts as managing director of NetEnt Americas and then was named Chief Operating Officer in 2018.

Krantz, who joined the company in August 2009, has served in a number of different roles within the business, including stints as managing director of its Malta business.

He served the company for a decade and worked under three chief executives namely Johan Ohman, Per Eriksson and Therese Hillman. In an email which was seen by Igb Krantz said that he enjoyed his time with the company and is now set to take time off.

NetEnt Chief Executive Therese Hillman highlighted that Krantz wanted to move on while paying tribute to the work that he did.

“Over the years, Björn has played a very important role for our market expansion globally and has had several different roles within NetEnt,” she said.

“I sincerely thank Björn for his contributions over the years and wish him all the best in his future endeavors. I’m sure that we will be seeing each other again somewhere in the global world of iGaming.”

NetEng have announced plans to restructure their commercial, marketing and sales teams to a single unit.

The merging of its teams was described in an internal email as a move to enable the business to “work faster, remove tension and combine budgets to achieve double digit growth”.

“We will shock and excite the industry, setting ourselves up so we compete against our competitors, rather than ourselves,” the email explained.
