Gauselmann Group has moved to restructure the executive leadership of its UK arcade entertainment subsidiary Praesepe, confirming the appointments of Stefan Bruns as new CEO accompanied by Börris Lüngen as CFO.
The duo will succeed current Praesepe leadership incumbent Nick Harding (CEO), who will take a UK market advisory position within Gauselmann Group.
A senior partner of Gauselmann since 2014, Stefan Bruns has led a number of international expansion projects for the German gambling group’s Merkur Gaming division.
Furthermore, Bruns has previously served as Director of Operations for Casino Merkur International, managing 400 venues across Europe.
Bruns will be supported by the appointment of Börris Lüngen as Praesepe CFO.
A 25-year finance veteran, Börris Lüngen joins the UK arcade operator from German wholesale food retailer Metro Markro, where he led group logistics for new Eastern European markets.
Updating investors, Gauselmann governance stated that it had installed an effective leadership team in Bruns and Lüngen to lead Praesepe’s UK market expansion and future growth projects.
