Sweden-based gaming company Global Gaming has appointed Niklas Jönsson as chief financial officer, replacing Christoffer Tell, effective January 1.

Tell, who is stepping down at his own request, will stay on in an advisory role to the management team until February 28, 2019.

Jönsson, pictured, has extensive experience working with growth companies in online gaming. Most recently he was CFO for live gaming specialist Evolution Gaming Malta. He has a background as an authorised public accountant with PwC.

“It’s incredibly inspiring to be part of Global Gaming’s continuing journey,” he said. “Having come from the supplier side of the industry, I now want to continue my personal development on the operator side.”

Outgoing CFO Tell said: “The past three years have been a fantastic experience both for the company and myself personally. The listing on Nasdaq First North was a big milestone but, above all, the growth that Global Gaming has achieved, and the fact that we now have an annualised revenue of SEK1bn has really been incredible. We have managed to build a fantastic company in such a short time.”

Global Gaming CEO Joacim Möller added: “Christoffer has been an extremely important piece of the puzzle in Global Gaming’s growth and I will miss his enthusiasm and his knowledge. At the same time, it will be exciting to have Niklas and his experience onboard on our journey.”

The news comes after Global Gaming announced its latest interim results, which report a 93 per cent rise in revenue in the last quarter, to SEK253m (€24.6m).
