Casino to commercial: Hornsletten makes EveryMatrix move

Stian Hornsletten, formerly Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the CasinoEngine division at EveryMatrix, has taken on a new role across the company’s commercial teams.

Hornsletten has been appointed as Group Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) to drive the company’s commercial strategy and bring new operators on board, as well as oversee the sales, marketing and account management teams.

A co-founder of EveryMatrix, he has been a prominent figure within the company for the last 12 years. More recently, he has helped CasinoEngine to sign and launch over 30 new casino clients in the last two years, including highly successful operators such as Tipico and the Norwegian state-owned Norsk Tipping

In fact, under his lead CasinoEngine reached over 230% year-on-year (YoY) gross gaming revenue (GGR) growth at the beginning of 2019, and is now processing over one billion game rounds per month.

Ebbe Groes, Group CEO at EveryMatrix, said: “I’ve known Stian for a long time now and I am thrilled that he accepted to take over EveryMatrix’s commercial growth across all business units, from sports betting, payments to affiliate and, of course, casino. Stian is both my business partner and trusted friend and having him in this commercial role is a great win for EveryMatrix.

“Thanks to Stian’s technical skills, passion for this business and comprehensive expertise, I believe we can reach the commercial objectives we have set and prove once more that EveryMatrix is a leading B2B company within the iGaming industry.”

Hornsletten added: “This is a very exciting time to be joining the commercial teams, and I look forward to working together with my colleagues to ensure that the company’s commercial strategy, products and service level are robust in today’s business environment.

“Our goal is to continue to increase market opportunities for partners and clients by focusing on providing our specialised technology and modular solutions alongside excellent service.”
