Betsson chief executive officer Magnus Silfverberg is leaving to helm data and information services company Bisnode. Here he analyses his biggest achievements while looking to the future.
“It’s been super-interesting,” says departing Betsson president and chief executive Magnus Silfverberg. “An amazing six years.”
He leaves for Bisnode, a Stockholm-headquartered data and information services company with 17 offices throughout Northern and Eastern Europe, revenues of over SEK3.5bn and 2,500 employees. The private equity company Ratos owns 70 percent of Bisnode, while the remaining 30 percent is owned by Bonnier.
“This field of big data is an area in which our industry has come pretty far – and more specifically – Betsson has come pretty far,” says Silfverberg. “I think that is the future and it is one of the big reasons for the move.”
