A generational change has been called by Kindred Group as Henrik Tjärnström ends his 14-year tenure as Chief Executive – to be replaced by Nils Anden on an interim basis.
On today’s episode of iGaming Daily, sponsored by SBC Summit Barcelona, James Ross, SBC’s Multimedia Editor, is joined by the two Teds, to talk about Tjärnström stepping down, the priorities facing Anden and the future of Kindred.
The outgoing CEO first assumed leadership duties of the Stockholm Nasdaq gambling group in July 2010, having stepped up from his joint role as Deputy CEO and Chief Financial Officer, a position he began in March 2008.
He began his tenure at the firm when it was active under its original identity of the Unibet group, sharing the same name as its flagship sportsbook product – in 2003 as a Non-Executive Director and member of the firm’s Audit Committee.mer
Tjärnström remarked: “I am very pleased with the Board of Directors’ choice of Nils Andén as the interim CEO, guaranteeing a smooth hand over.”
