It hasn’t been an easy decision to make – Nygaard-Andersen wrote on her LinkedIn profile on Monday, as she steps down as the CEO of Entain. The news has been shared for the first time in mid-december, and many changes in the directors board followed soon after. Now, the ex-CEO of the company shares her viewpoint in an emotional and personal statement.
Over the past four years, we have dramatically shifted the company to be a responsible operator, a reputable employer, strategically put the customer front and centre of business operations, worked on transforming the technology to make it future fit, diversified the portfolio and so much more. That luminous GVC orange evolved to an iconic bright Entain purple and Entain became a business that partners want to work with, people want to work for, and customers trust with their entertainment. – Nygaard-Andersen added. The full statement is available to read on her profile.
The return to iGaming industry
There is enormous opportunity to innovate in the gaming industry. – Nygaard-Andersen stated, as she continues to explain her holiday days will be over as soon, as an opportunity comes knocking on her door.
