“I am delighted that Peter has decided to be part of the Betsson team as Chief Strategy Officer, his experience and personality fit the team perfectly. Also, as Betsson Group is gearing up for the opening of the Swedish gambling market there should be no better person to develop our position in the Swedish market,”  Svensson commented on the appointment.
