Kindred confirms departure of Ebba Ljungerud as Group Commercial lead

Stockholm-listed Kindred Group Plc has confirmed that long-term executive Ebba Ljungerud has departed the firm’s senior management team.

A Kindred executive since 2010, Ljungerud has served the Stockholm enterprise in a number of leadership roles including Chief Product Officer of Unibet, Managing Director of Maria Gaming and most recently as Kindred Chief Commercial Officer (2016-2018).

Ljungerud has announced that she will be joining Swedish multi-media games publisher Paradox Interactive, a company she has previously consulted as a Non-Executive Director to governance.

Kindred has confirmed to SBC that it is actively searching for an executive to replace Ljungerud as group commercial leader.

At present, Group Chief Strategy Officer (CSO) Rhodri Darch has taken over Ljungerud’s commercial responsibilities, fulfilling the role on an interim basis.

One of the longest-serving Kindred Group executives, Ljungerud has been a key stakeholder in developing the firm’s multi-market brands and commercial propositions.

Key Ljungerud initiatives for Kindred include restructuring Maria Gaming and securing the firm’s long-term partnership with the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC) Premier League.
