Maria Hedengren will leave Swedish casino games developer NetEnt after nearly five years serving as chief financial officer.

The search for Hedengren’s successor is under way, although she will retain her responsibilities as CFO of NetEnt until she leaves the company. NetEnt did not divulge a date for her departure.

Hedengren will be taking up the position of CFO at another company, although no information has yet been made public.

Per Eriksson, president and CEO of NetEnt, said: "Maria has made a significant contribution to the success of NetEnt over these past years. I will miss our interactions and wish her all the best in her new position.”

Hedegren joined NetEnt in October 2011 from IBS where she was head of group control. Prior to that she trained as an Auditor at Arthur Anderson and built up professional experience in various positions, including director of group finance at Lawson Software during an 8 year period.

She took on the role of NetEnt CFO in October 2011 following the departure of Bertil Jungmar.

Shares in NetEnt AB (Co. Data) (STO:NET-B) were trading down 1.63 per cent at SEK87.35 per share in Stockholm earlier Friday.
