Thursday December 18,2014 : MR GREEN C.E.O. TO STEP DOWN
But Pawlo gets a seat on the board of directors.
A statement Thursday from online casino company Mr Green reveals that chief executive officer Mikael Pawlo is to step down in June 2015 as chief executive of the AktieTorget-listed company, but has been nominated to join the board of directors.
Pawlo is a member of the founding trio of Mr Green and has served as CEO of the company, first in Malta and subsequently for the listed holding company, for several years.
“It has been an incredible journey to be part of establishing Mr Green as a secure and entertaining alternative in the European gaming market," Pawlo said Thursday.
"We have evolved from an idea in a Word document in autumn 2007 to today having a group with 145 employees and a game win for the third quarter of SEK 484.2 million."
Pawlo said that the company is now entering a new phase, building on the solid foundations that have been established. It is therefore an opportune time for someone else to take over as chief executive, he concluded.
Mr Green chairman, Tommy Trollborg, said: “I cannot emphasise enough the importance of Mikael Pawlo to the success of Mr Green online casino. Under his leadership, we have created a casino experience that we believe is in a class of its own. For this reason, I am delighted that the company can be assured of [his] expertise through the proposal to elect him as a new Board member.”
