Therese Hillman has stepped down from her position on Unibet Group’s board of directors following her appointment as chief financial officer of casino games developer NetEnt.

Hillman has been a director of Unibet and a member of its audit committee since 2015, but will step down from the board in order to avoid any conflict of interest with her new position.

She will begin her new job with NetEnt on January 9th next year, joining the supplier to replace Maria Hedengren who leaves after five years.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Therese for her dedicated and professional work as a board member at Unibet Group,” Unibet chairman Anders Ström said. “She has added a great deal of knowledge and experience to the board and it is of course with regret we accept her decision to leave the board.

“On behalf of the entire board and our owners I would like to wish Therese the best of luck in her new role,” he added.
