Real Luck Group appoints former PokerStars director to board
Real Luck Group and its Luckbox subsidiary have made two senior appointments, including naming former PokerStars director Bo Wänghammar to its board of directors.
Wänghammar was formerly Director of International Projects and Managing Director of Casino at PokerStars, which was acquired by Flutter Entertainment for US$6 billion in October 2019. He has also served as the CEO and Business Development Director at Mr Green & Co online casino, which was acquired by William Hill for US£242 million in October 2018.
He joins Chairman Drew Green, CEO Thomas Rosander, Lloyd Melnick, and Maruf Raza, on the Real Luck Group board of directors and replaces Mike Stevens, who resigned from his position as a director to focus on his family and charity work.
Real Luck Group CEO Thomas Rosander said in a press release: “I am thrilled a seasoned operator such as Bo will be joining our board. This is an exciting stage for the company as we look to scale our user acquisition efforts and revenues and I believe his experience and guidance will be invaluable to Real Luck’s growth strategy.
“His track record speaks for itself, as during his time as Director of Casino at PokerStars, he oversaw the doubling of revenues to more than US$500 million, growing the casino vertical to outperform the core poker offering. During Mr. Wänghammar’s time at Mr Green the business grew quickly and achieved strong profitability and we believe he was instrumental in refactoring the technical infrastructure to launch a portfolio of award-winning products.”
Meanwhile, the company has also appointed lotto gaming executive Benn Timbury, formerly of Lottoland Group and LiveLotto, as its Chief Operating Officer.
