EveryMatrix has named Stian Enger Pettersen as chief executive officer of the company’s casino business unit, having previously driven product development of CasinoEngine and BonusEngine solutions.

After graduating from Washington State University with a degree in international business, Pettersen began a career in igaming in 2005.

Having been lauded as successfully managing several B2C operations before joining EveryMatrix in 2015 as a product owner, Pettersen has been involved in shaping the casino platform and building the BonusEngine, a system designed to help casinos and bookmakers tailor acquisition and retention strategies.

Ebbe Groes, EveryMatrix group CEO, commented: “The last couple of years have been fantastic, with many achievements and growth. CasinoEngine is our best product, and without any doubt, the number one igaming integration platform. I couldn’t think of anyone more capable and experienced than Stian to take over the business and continue to scale it up.

“Stian has been with us for many years and knows the casino vertical inside-out. He did an incredible job with BonusEngine, which is now one of our biggest differentiators on the market. He’s hands-on, with both business and technical understanding, which is very rare, and has a clear vision which resonates very well with our team.”

During his tenure thus far Pettersen’s technical expertise and business understanding of how casinos should operate in today’s competitive landscape is praised as helping propel CasinoEngine forward.

This has subsequently helped long-time clients such as Norsk Tipping or Wunderino to surpass their ambitious targets, while securing new exciting partnerships with operators such as Paddy Power Betfair and OPAP.

Pettersen added: “It is a pleasure to be involved in a very successful product which re-shaped the way our clients compete in the casino space. I’m excited to continue the good work we’ve done in the past years and help casinos be more competitive, profitable, and exceed all their goals.”
