The Board of Directors of the international gaming company Paf, which is licensed and controlled by the local government of Åland, has decided to part ways with its CEO Anders Ingves.
Paf’s CFO Johan Rothberg steps in as acting CEO until a new CEO is appointed. The reason the Board has given is that they have different views from Anders Ingves on how continued international growth will be secured in the future.
“Anders Ingves has done a very good job and has taken Paf a big step forward. But the challenge remains to continue growing in international markets and we believe that Paf needs a different type of leader for this task,” comments Chairman of the Paf Board Jarl Danielsson.
The Board of Directors is confident that Paf will continue to carry through its existing processes, international growth plans and business. They also feel that Group Management and all other employees are willing and able to continue their efforts to make Paf grow.
A press conference was arranged at Hotell Arkipelag in Mariehamn on Åland at 15.00 CET on 28 January in which Jarl Danielsson, Chairman of the Paf Board and Torbjörn Eliasson, Deputy Chairman of the Paf Board, commented about the Board’s decision to part ways with Anders Ingves.
