Schleswig-Holstein-based gaming operator mybet has bolstered its supervisory board with three new members elected at the company’s annual shareholder meeting.

Among the three to be appointed is Clemens Jakopitsch, who was nominated by a shareholder just months after he resigned from the board with immediate effect in November last year for undisclosed reasons. He is the owner of Behördenengineering Jakopitsch, an engineering business based in Austria.

The two other additions to the board were Markus Knoss and Patrick Möller, both of whom were proposed by mybet.

Knoss is a capital market expert in corporate trading and sales, who works at the Frankfurt-based bank BankM, while Möller is director of investor relations at XING AG, a social software platform connecting professionals, similar to Linkedin.

The appointments bring the number of members of the supervisory board up to six, after a number of people departed over the course of 2013.

These included the company’s co-founder, Rainer Jacken, as well as board members Jakoptisch and Rodolfo Carpintier Santana, while chairman Antje Stoltenberg also stepped down.

Board member Frank Motte, whose term of office ended at the close of the shareholders’ meeting, did not seek re-election.

The meeting saw the management board discuss the company’s 2013 financial year, in which it admitted to underperforming as well as the first quarter of 2014, and the current restructuring and strategic repositioning of the business under the management of Sven Ivo Brinck, who replaced long-serving CEO Mathias Dahms in December last year.

The turnout for the shareholders' meeting was 44.6 per cent, up from 33.3 per cent the previous year.
