Publish: 28.08.2017

Swedish online gambling company, Mr Green announced the latest addition to its management team.

Mattias Wedar is the new Chief Executive Officer of the company’s technology development subsidiary, Mr Green & Technology, where he replaces the outgoing CEO, Stefan Gustafsson.

Bringing Additional Experience

Wedar arrives at Mr Green with vast experience, while his previous roles include working for Eniro, the Stockholm-based company offering search services and directory assistance, where he held the position of Chief Information Officer and Chief Executive Officer.

Before joining Eniro, Wedar also held management positions at a number of companies in the digital industry, including Accenture, the Ireland-based company that provides strategy, consulting, digital, technology and operations service.

Per Norman, Mr Green’s Chief Executive Office said the company was very happy that Wedar joined Mr Green. He stated that Wedar had a solid background in the digital industry and a thorough experience in areas such as technology development, marketing and products.

Norman added Wedar would be the key figure in the further implementation of the Mr Green 2.0 business strategy, while helping in the continuous development of the company’s technology platform which had been launched last year.

Excellent Year for Mr Green

Speaking about future goals, Norman said the current business strategy encompassed a clear plan to develop an even stronger customer experience which would be based on digital technology and the individual preferences of the customers.

This move follows on the news that Mr Green had an excellent first half of the year, in which the company recorded strong performance growth and improved all-round operational efficiency, cost awareness and scalability.

Described as the most successful quarter since the company was founded in 2007, the first half of 2017 saw the rise in revenue of 36%, while the earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) were four times bigger than in the corresponding period of 2016.
