Play’n Go has appointed Magnus Olsson to the position of sales director, leading the company’s sales and account management divisions.

Olsson brings 20 years’ experience at major multinationals corporations including Hewlett Packard and Juniper Networks.

The company hopes Olsson’s sales knowledge and customer expertise will be a tremendous boost to the company, helping drive the organisation into the next stage of development.

The strategic reshuffle brings the knowledge of both sectors under one section and is the first step towards a new focus on getting the most out of the company’s customer-facing departments, creating a streamlined global sales organisation in the process.

“I’m very happy to be entrusted with moving Play’n Go into this new era,” said Olsson. “It is a rapidly growing company and I look forward to driving continued growth and success here.”

Johan Törnqvist, CEO of Play’n Go, added: “Magnus comes to us having gained a great deal of experience throughout his career and, in his short time with us, has already shown the qualities that we were looking for in order to move forward in this endeavour.

“This is a very exciting time for Play’n Go and I’m delighted to be moving the company ahead with Magnus here alongside us.”
