Johan Styren departs as CEO of LeoVegas Malta

Updating the market, LeoVegas Group AB has informed that Johan Styren has officially stepped down from his leadership position as CEO of LeoVegas Gaming Ltd (Malta subsidiary).

A founding team executive, Styren has led LeoVegas Malta operations since 2012, joining the mobile first operator from Unibet Plc.

LeoVegas governance informs that Styren will continue as a director of the company until 30 June, helping the operator during its transitional period. At present, LeoVegas will handle Styren leadership responsibilities within the framework of the existing organisation.

Gustaf Hagman, Group CEO and LeoVegas co-founder personally thanked Styren for his contribution to company growth and strategy.

“Johan has been very valuable to LeoVegas, primarily by being part of building our business in Malta. Johan has been part of creating what LeoVegas is today and I want to thank him for his amazing effort during his 5 years at LeoVegas. I wish him all the best in the future,” said Hagman.

Leaving LeoVegas’ executive team, Styren commented on the firm: “When I started at LeoVegas 2012 we had just launched and had no customers. Today we are market leaders.”

“Since then, we have managed to build the world’s best mobile casino, added sports games and live casino, listed on Nasdaq First North and made LeoVegas one of the best gaming companies in the world. After more than five fantastic years, I feel it’s time to move on to new challenges.”
