Relax Gaming Promotes Kirsten O’Neill to Chief Financial Officer

Relax Gaming, the iGaming aggregator and supplier of unique content, has appointed Kirsten O’Neill as its new Chief Financial Officer (CFO).

A Strategic Promotion Within Relax Gaming

Kirsten O’Neill steps into the role of CFO after joining Relax Gaming in 2021, where she served as Group Finance Manager. O’Neill’s extensive experience in the gaming industry, including key financial roles at both NetEnt and Yggdrasil Gaming, has positioned her well for this new challenge.

This strategic promotion follows the recent appointment of Martin Stålros to CEO. Stålros has been with Relax Gaming for nearly a decade, previously serving as Chief Operating Officer. His advancement to CEO underscores the company’s focus on leveraging internal talent to drive growth and innovation.

Longstanding CFO Markus Kruk, who held the position for nine years, will transition to the role of Chief Corporate Development Officer. In this capacity, Kruk will focus on exploring new product verticals and strategic partnerships, ensuring the brand continues its rapid expansion in key markets worldwide.

Statements from Leadership

Kirsten O’Neill expressed her excitement about her new role, saying, “I could not be prouder to take the next step in my career and become CFO at Relax Gaming. This is a special company that has played a huge role in my development over the last several years. I am truly excited to continue all of the great work that Markus has achieved ensuring that we are sustainable as a business and I look forward to what lies ahead.”

Martin Stålros, CEO of Relax Gaming, added, “We are delighted to announce Kirsten as Relax Gaming’s second-ever CFO. She has been a pivotal part of our team for some time and has a fantastic reputation as someone that can be trusted to help us towards our next major milestones as we enter our latest chapter. I am thrilled to see her take the next step of her journey as she genuinely deserves this opportunity.”

Stålros also extended his gratitude to Markus Kruk for his contributions, stating, “I would also like to take the opportunity to thank Markus for his outstanding efforts as CFO. We both joined the business around the same time, and he has been instrumental to the journey Relax Gaming has taken as a company. I look forward to his continued journey as Chief Corporate Development Officer, and to working together closely in his new role.”
