PlayStar, an online casino brand that is set to launch its offering in New Jersey in the coming months, has announced the appointment of a new chief financial officer. Gustav Vadenbring will take on the position from January 10, 2022.
Per Hellberg, CEO of PlayStar, said: “Gustav is a major coup for PlayStar. He brings with him unrivalled experience in corporate finance and mergers and acquisitions which will prove key to us achieving our goal of becoming the preferred online casino brand in New Jersey and beyond.
“As a challenger brand it is important that we maintain tight control over our finances while also securing additional investment as and when required, and in Gustav we have someone that is beyond qualified for the job.
“I would like to officially welcome him to PlayStar and look forward to working closely together, and with the rest of the hugely talented team we have assembled, as we get ready to take the market by storm when we make our imminent debut.”
As CFO, Vadenbring will work to oversee the financial operations of the operator as it begins to enter the US market. He has previously worked as CFO at the affiliate Acroud.
Gustav Vadenbring added: “When I got the offer to build up something entirely new and unique together with an experienced team I knew I had to take it and join PlayStar.”
This news comes as PlayStar begins plans to enter the North American market, with its New Jersey launch set for Q1 of 2022.
“This is a bold and ambitious company that is looking to disrupt the status quo with an online casino brand and player experience the likes of which have never been seen before in North America and indeed the world,” Gustav concluded.
“I am very excited and proud to be joining this amazing team of industry specialists and to be a part of what will be a hugely successful journey for the PlayStar brand and organization."
