efore working at Catena, Ekdahl held chief executive roles at various gambling companies including Betsafe and Betsson Group.
Catena did not specify the reasons behind Robert Andersson’s departure. However, it released a statement saying it opted to initiate the change “in order to fulfil the company’s strategy, continued growth and to increase shareholder value”
It is still unclear how long Ekdahl will serve in the interim role, with Catena revealing it will seek a permanent replacement for Andersson.
“Catena Media has been through several growth stages in a short period of time,” said Kathryn Moore Baker, chairwoman of Catena Media.
She continued, “Robert Andersson’s assignment was to take the company through an IPO and later to introduce it to Nasdaq Stockholm’s main market, which he did with great results.
“Now, a new phase starts, which marks a new era in Catena Media's success going forward.
“We are very pleased that Henrik Persson Ekdahl will take over as acting CEO; it sets the tone for what we want to achieve in the future.
“We will continue with our strong growth strategy and look for a permanent CEO in due time.”
