Denmark’s Danske Spil Gets new Unit Chief Executive
The board of Danske Spil, Denmark's state-owned gambling operator, has elected Karsten Fogh Holanng as the new inbound chief executive of 'Licens Spil' (licensed games).
Starting from February next year, Holanng will replace Niels Erik Folmann, who had been the CEO of Licens Spil for nine years and recently announced that he would be ending his tenure after joining Danish theme park operator Tivoli as the company's Chief Commercial Officer.
As Chief Executive, Karsten Fogh Holanng's roles will involve building the performance of Danske Spil's online gambling portfolio, including its Oddset, Tips, Casino, Bingo and Poker verticals.
Having served as Chief Information Officer of Licens Spil since 2016, the board believes that Holanng has the required experience and expertise to succeed Folmann as the leader of the sportsbook and online gambling unit.
Karsten has in-depth knowledge of the business and our partners, and he has delivered great results as IT officer at Danske Spil," Lyhne-Knudsen noted.
I am pleased that we can draw even more on Karsten's extensive commercial and managerial experience in the role of director of Danske Licens Spil.
