Relax Gaming has added to its executive team with the appointment of Kristen O’Neill as its new Chief Financial Officer.

O’Neill has been with the igaming aggregator and supplier since 2021, holding the position of Group Financial Officer. Before joining the company, she worked on the finance teams of NetEnt and Yggdrasil Gaming.

Commenting on her appointment, O’Neill said: “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.”

O’Neill will replace former CFO Markus Kruk, who held the position for nine years but will now be stepping into the role of Chief Corporate Development Officer, focusing on product verticals and strategic partnerships.

Back in April, Relax Gaming also named Martin Stålros as its new CEO following Simon Hammon’s decision to step down from the role. Stålros previously spent nearly a decade as the company’s Chief Operating Officer.

“We are delighted to announce Kirsten as Relax Gaming’s second-ever CFO,” stated Stålros.

“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.”

“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.”
