Global Gaming confirms exit of CEO Joacim Möller

Stockholm-listed Global Gaming has confirmed that Joacim Möller has resigned as Chief Executive of the company with immediate effect.

In order to succeed, the company’s adaptation to be further intensified. It is the Board’s opinion that the extensive work and the way forward needs new leadership.”

In its latest trading update, Global Gaming governance blamed an increase in Swedish regulatory costs for creating a company slowdown, which would see the operator undertake a new review of balances and costs.
